Easter Reads for Young Children

Did you know that Easter is just around the corner? April 1. No Fooling. Select some fun reads for your toddler or preschooler. My favorite is the Peter Rabbit series by Beatrix Potter. #Affliate links

Jan Brett's The Easter EggPaw Patrol Count on Eater Pups
and my new favorite, Here Comes the Easter Cat

Remember to Keep Reading Short, Simple, and Often

  • Toddlers frequently have shorter attention spans than babies. Look for text that is short and simple. Read a little bit, several times a day.
  • Choose books about everyday experiences and feelings. Your child will identify with the characters as they dress, eat, visit, nap, and play. Board books are great for this.

Sing, Read, Repeat. 

  • Read favorite stories and sing favorite songs over and over again. 
  • Repeated fun with books will strengthen language development and positive feelings about reading.
