My top ten books for under twos

Below are my top ten books for under twos. Based on the reading habits of  my soon to be 2 year old. Having said that she pretty much loves all books and often what she likes can change from one day to the next. However the below are some of her most loved ones.

 

 This is a great book that my daughter just loves reading. In fact she has a few other Rod campbell books, which she also really likes, but this one is probably her favourite.

Postman bear is written by the creators of the Gruffalo and is a great lift the flap book. My eldest has two others in the series “tales of Acorn Wood” they are Fox’s Socks and Hide and Seek Pig. Both of which i can heartily recommend as well.

This is probably the first story book we read to her, when she was younger, as part of her bedtime routine. She wanted it to be read to her for months on end and she really loved it.

What the ladybird heard is a great story and my daughter loved finding the hidden ladybird on each page. However she quickly memorized all the locations and really enjoys pointing to it straight away with a big smile on her face. This book also teaches them about farm animals and the noises they make.

She absolutely loves this book, however unsupervised she did manage to tear out all the pop-up pieces so we have had to source a replacement as it’s not that easy to find anymore. Although there are some other Mr Croc books that she loves just as much, which are still available.

This is the first Peppa Pig book that my daughter got and she absolutely loves it. She loves it for being a book and not through the television show as she has never watched television yet. She now also enjoys Peppas Washing Day especially the bit about getting muddy.

Being Dutch Miffy is an iconic children’s book character and so we have got quiet a few of the books. She currently absolutely loves this one. Probably as we took her to the beach over the christmas break and that is still fresh in her mind.

Another classic book, but one that she loves. She especially loves recognizing and pointing at all the different food items.

 This book is all about potty training so we gave it to our daughter at the same time as we brought out the potty. It’s an ideal and fun way of teaching her about the function of a potty. She did start sitting on the potty shortly afterwards, but after an interrupted and extended christmas visit to see family the potty hasn’t really come back out again.

This is a recent addition from one of the christmas events at a local toddler group. She really enjoys it though especially getting to the last page.

 

Our daughter is a real book worm and we have tons of other books, which she will happily read, the above ones are probably the ones that have been read the most though.

Has anyone got any other unmissable books for under two’s? Also now she is turning two in 10 days time can anyone recommend some books for the next stage up?

      Thanks my daughter is a total bookworm and wants us to read to her the whole time. Probably because we haven’t let her watch any tv yet. I’ll check out you blog post.

    You have so many of our favourites on this list! I have lots more of our favourites on my blog but would definitely recommend Peck, Peck, Peck by Lucy Cousins (also the author of the Maisy books which my daughter loved when she was two), any of the Kipper stories by Mick Inkpen and The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales by Heather Amery and Stephen Cartwright which has been read here countless times 🙂
