Good Reads – Toddler Edition

Varun loves to be read to. Every night, after watching cartoons, he loves to snuggle up with Vipul and asks him to read. We got a new box of books courtesy our friends in US – Dr Seuss’s  Beginner book collection. Varun couldn’t wait to open the box and asked me to read it to him.

We read a few books to him every night – even on vacation. He knows the books and asks to read about ‘ Lion in the Long Grass’ or ‘ Izzy jog’ or ‘Megs pet’.  As we turn pages, he will point to characters and say their names, if they are crying/sad or laughing. Also, he knows endings and will loudly repeat the last sentence as Vipul turns the page. It just cracks us up.

In flights, he will open up the safety instructions card and hold it upside down and pretend to read 🙂 Things kids do.

Reading is the only way to make him sit in one place. I am glad at least we can have a few minutes of peace.

  1. Hi R,

    Great resources for children. Thank you.
    I recently checked out this book – “A Parent’s Guide to the Best Kids’ Comics: Choosing Titles Your Children Will Love”. I was pleasantly surprised to see recommendations and profiles of books (comic books) for different age groups (Page 3 from Amazon link below). I picked out great number of books for our 5 year old after reviewing this guide from our Library (information provided below).

    Also, to check on changing landscape on new books and audiovisual collections for children, our library (Naperville Public Library** – rated as #1 Public Library in USA) has great resources available on-line for free:

    Other children’s resources:

    All categories best sellers:


    Keep up the great work on the blog.

  2. Thank you , your feedback is always insightful.
