The Best Books for Preschoolers

My daughter (now age 5) loves books. She can spend hours paging through them. We typically have at least 40 books checked out of the library for her. During the preschool years, here were some of her very favorites:

Mary Engelbreit’s Nursery Tales. We own this one.  Hours of amusement!

Mary Engelbreit’s Mother Goose. We own this one, too.

Audrey can’t get enough of naughty David’s antics. No, David!

David Goes to School

David Gets in Trouble

And I just saw that there’s a David Christmas book! It’s Christmas, David!

Napping House

I Took the Moon for a Walk

Something from Nothing

Olivia (Warning: some parents do not appreciate Olivia’s strong-willed personality!)

What are (or were) your preschooler’s favorites?


  1. The Mole Sisters books by Roslyn Schwarz were a huge hit with my little boy. Great for beginning readers and non-readers alike as the illustrations are adorable.

    My son also loved/still loves:
    “The Water Hole” by Graeme Base (a counting book, and environmental awareness all in one lushly illustrated book)

    “The Whole Night Through: A Lullaby” by David Frampton

    and of course the original Curious George books, which we scored all in one volume for cheap at the thrift store.
