Best Books For Adopted Toddlers and Preschoolers

I LOVE children's books.

Ever since we adopted Piney, reading to her has been one of my favorite activities with her.

I used to be in speech and drama classes growing up, so I sort of get to keep this interest up through reading out loud.

The first book she would sit still for was: Peek-A Who? by Nina Laden

As Piney gets older she is able to sit for longer, more interesting books.

However, she still likes the toddler-level books as well.

Best Books for Toddlers and Preschoolers (Piney's favorites):

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

The Going-To-Bed Book by Sandra Boynton

Blue Hat, Green Hat (Boynton, Sandra. Boynton Board Books.) by Sandra Boynton

Pat the Bunny (Touch and Feel Book) by Dorothy Kunhardt

A Mother for Choco (Paperstar) by Keiko Kasza

Our daughter loves the Margaret Wise Brown and Sandra Boyton books too! We also like "Tell Me Again About The Night I Was Born" by Jamie Lee Curtis.

She also really likes "her" book: I put together a scrapbook/baby book, telling the story of her adoption.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
