Top Picks Best Picture Books For Children By Stephanie Moore

A love of reading only comes from reading. If you read to a child regularly and provide books for them to read on their own, a passion for the written word will soon develop. Even if your child is not able to read yet, they can still flip through the book. The following books have engaging pictures and words that are easy to remember.

Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books) (paid link)
Dr. Seuss revolutionized children's literature by rejecting the classic Dick and Jane format and creating his own whimsical stories. Dr. Seuss' stories have messages in them, which lets kids know that authors are trying to tell them something.

Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! by Dr. Seuss (paid link)
This is another Seuss book. It inspires kids to think - which isn't something we do a lot, is it?

The Lorax by Dr. Seuss (paid link)
The Lorax is full of fun language, with an engaging story and great pictures. Most importantly, its message against materialism and greed is perfect for a young mind.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (paid link)
This story is about a little caterpillar who spins a chrysalis and becomes a beautiful butterfly. The pictures are nice and the story is engaging.

Slide and Find Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (paid link)
A rhyming book that children love to recite. Great illustrations as well.

Love You Forever: The Best of Robert Munsch (paid link)
This is a very sentimental book about loving someone. It shows a little boy growing up and becoming a man and how he is still a little baby in his mother's heart. It is a tear-jerker, so beware.

These are just a few interesting picture books. Regular trips to the library and bookstore are important for a growing mind. Also, it's important to let a child pick out his or her own books from time to time. Little kids are a lot more perceptive than we think. Those little minds are always working - and a good book is like fuel on the fire.
