When I need a story book to read to a group of preschoolers, only certain ones will do. It has to have an engaging story, big bold pictures, and it helps if it's funny. I don't want the kids to just sit like little lumps listening, I want them to participate.
What books hit all these marks and make me smile EVERY time I read them? Here are my top 5 favorites to share with preschool groups.
Having finished my list, I can think of at least 5 more titles that are good and maybe several others that are great. This business of picking favorite books is especially hard for librarians. If you'd like more suggestions, just ask your local librarian for their top 5 (or 30) preschool class read-alouds. Or add yours to the comments below!
