The favorite Mother Goose rhyme about the three careless kittens who lost their mittens is given added appeal with Galdone's bold and colorful illustrations. This refreshingly hearty version of the nonsense verse will be as much a favorite of adult storytellers as it will be for toddler listeners. Three little kittens lose, find, soil and wash their mittens.

Why Should You Read To Your Kids?

Why Should You Read To Your Kids?

Knowledge Is Reading
What is the most important trait you would like to develop in your child? If you are like most parents, intelligence is at the top of your wish list. We all want bright, smart kids. Which is why we spend  much of our time choosing good schools and making sure the teachers are exceeding our expectations, but remember as a parent you have the power to boost your children's reading and learning potential simply by making quality childrens books a consistent part of their lives. We all know reading childrens books to our kids is a good thing, but are you familiar with the exact advantages your toddler or child can receive by being exposed to the benefits of reading best childrens books? Below are some benefits that show the importance of reading quality childrens books to your child between the ages of one and five.

  • A stronger relationship with you. As your child grows, they will be on the move, playing, running and constantly exploring. Cuddling up with a popular childrens book lets the two of you slow down and recapture that sweet cuddly time you enjoyed when your child was a baby.
  • Academic excellence. One of the greatest benefits of reading best kids books to toddlers is a higher perception for learning in general. Numerous studies have shown that students who are exposed to reading quality childrens books before preschool are much more likely to do well in all avenues of formal education.
  • Basic speech skills. Throughout toddlerhood, your child is learning critical language and pronunciation skills. By listening to you read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, your child is learning the basic sounds that form language.
  • The basics of how to read a book. Children are not born with the knowledge that text is read from left to right or that the words on a page are separate from the illustrations.
  • Better communication skills. When you spend time reading kids books to toddlers they will be  more likely to express themselves and relate to others in a constructive way.
  • Mastery of language. Early reading for toddlers has been linked to a better understanding of the fundamentals of language as they approach school age.
  • More logical thinking skills. Another example of the importance of reading quality childrens books to children is their ability to grasp concepts, apply logic in various scenarios, recognize cause and effect and utilize good judgment.
  • Acclamation to new experiences. As your child approaches a new developmental milestone or a potentially stressful experience. Sharing a common story is a great way to help ease the transition.
  • Enhanced concentration and discipline. Toddlers may first squirm and become distracted during story book time, but eventually they will learn to stay still for the duration of the book.
  • The knowledge that reading is fun! Early reading of best kids books for toddlers helps them view kids books as excitement, not a chore.

What could make a better present than a classic Beginner Book? Six of them for less than the price of two. We have taken the complete text and art of three beloved P.D. Eastman titles: Go, Dog. Go!, Are You My Mother?, The Best Nest; Robert Lopshire's Put Me In the Zoo (the first of his books featuring the character Spot); Marilyn Sadler and Roger Bollen's It's Not Easy Being a Bunny (the first PJ Funnybunny story); and Mike McClintock's charming, cautionary tale A Fly Went By, and bound them together in one sturdy hardcover omnibus. A perfect introduction to reading that will wet young readers appetites for additional books in the Beginner Book series.
