Picture Books

**update** please see litpicksjunior.com for all children’s recs.


I figured this is as good a place as any to keep track of what my babies are reading and loving. Mostly for me, so I have a place to look back and see what their favorites were at any age for gifts and recs.

(my) 2yr Old Boy

He typically likes whatever we’re reading but these are the ones he carries around and asks for by name.

  • Go, Dog, Go by PD Eastman
  • Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds
  • No, David by David Shannon
  • Farm Babies by HA Rey (this one has a cool lift the flap)

(my) 3.5yr Old Girl

She loves books and has quite a library. She loves books with a scary part or a bad guy and also books that make her laugh.

  • Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr (she’s learning her letters)
  • Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss
  • The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch
  • Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls
  • The Night Gardener by The Fan Brothers
  • The Seven Silly Eaters by Marla Frazee


Birth – 2yrs

  • Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey
  • Odd One Out by Britta Teckentrup
  • We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Helen Oxenbury
  • Jamberry by Bruce Degen
  • 1 to 20 Animals Aplenty by Katie Viggers
  • Zoo-ology by Joelle Jolivet (this one is GIANT and so, so beloved)
