I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite things is reading with kids. Having 5 children of my own and being a childminder, reading with kids is all a part of my daily life.
From a young age, children love to explore and take an interest in books. They love nothing more than to share the experience with their special adult. Kid’s can look at pictures, listen to your voice, and point to objects on the pages.
You can guide your child by pointing to the pictures, and say the names of the various objects. By drawing attention to pictures and associating the words with both pictures and the real-world objects, your child will learn the importance of language.
Kids learn to love the sound of language before they even notice the existence of printed words on a page. Reading with kids aloud stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Which is a vital part of their development.
Reading with kids helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. When the rhythm and rhyme of language become a part of a child’s life.
Here are what I consider the Top 23 Books For Reading With Kids Aged 2-5 years old.
