25 Must-Have Children's Books

Whether you are looking for a book to read with your children, a gift for a loved one, to enhance your own library or taking a trip to the public library, we have compiled a list of 25 must-have children’s books to enjoy.

Although my children are now older, I still have many of my favorite children’s story books that I use to enhance literacy skills in the classroom, recommend to other parents or to share with family members. These are the books that have stayed in my collection and some that I have added to my library over the past few years.

Cuddle up and read to ensure that you use this time to bond with your child. Lifelong learning leads to lifelong success and being a reading role-model will assist in the reading fun. While reading, make the experience fun by using your voice to imitate a character speaking or role play to stimulate your child’s imagination. Try pointing out letters, individual words, rhyming words or pattern text to encourage your child to participate in the reading.

Don’t forget to give your child a chance to select their favorite books or to choose books of interest at a level that is relevant to your reader. Books with repetitive text, rich illustrations and predictability will give your child an opportunity to engage in the reading and explore and internalize a variety of texts.

While reading to, and with your child, through listening and speaking you are encouraging oral language skills, vocabulary development and print awareness skills.

By promoting and supporting a love of reading, it is our hope that this passion will last a lifetime!
