Toddler Books that Teach


Every two weeks , we visit our local library for a book haul. When I say haul..we borrow at least 30 books.  Our girls loves books. I am amaze how jumping bean at 18 mos can actually sit still and listen while we read the books to them.

I have discovered this series of Toddler Tools books at the library ( had never seen them before at our local book store) and I love it. Not only it teaches manners and positive attitude , the illustrations on each of the books are very good , that a toddler can actually understand just by looking at the pictures.

At the very last page of the books, there are some tips for caregivers/parents as well. So If you love to read to your kiddos , I highly recommend this books.

here's a sample :

Familiar with meltdowns and tantrums? This particular book offers toddlers simple tools on how to deal with strong feelings, express them, and calm themselves down. They can use their "calm down space" to cry , ask for a hug , to breathe and talk about their feelings.

Also , I do want to encourage y'all to curb out some time to read to our young ones at home .  We all get really busy and finds it hard to set a schedule for reading.  . Keep in mind that there are a lot of benefits, to name a few :

  • Teaching them the basics of reading
  • Teaches basic speech
  • Enhances their logical and thinking skills
  •   Instead of seeing reading as s a chore or a task, reading will become a nurturing activity.

So put those dishes down for a while , turn the TV or any media off for a few ..sit down and relax with the kiddos. Snuggling up with a book lets the two of you slow down.


Here's a good resource about the benefits of reading:
