Hey there, fellow Mama’s and Papa’s! I’ve got a great list of books for you today!

My 2 year old little girl Elayna, has always loved books but lately as her little mind (and vocab) has been drastically growing, she’s been way more interested in them and we’ve been checking out some new ones (and classics) that I’ve been looking forward to sharing with you.

They’re also very wallet-friendly, great books don’t have to be expensive. 🙂 So here’s what we’ve been up to in the reading department…

This book is so beautifully illustrated, it’s bright and colorful! It teaches numbers (and animals too) in a fun and simple way. Elayna was engaged immediately, and I really like it too!

This book is fantastic! It teaches all of your basic manners and the illustrations are really cool. She was already doing really well with manners but she took to this book immediately and after reading it only one time, she can open to a page and associate the correct phrase with picture right away! We have a lot of fun with this one!

I have a soft spot for this book, I had it when I was a kid. It shows your little one all the ways they can be independent. It’s a really fun and cute way to encourage them to do things for themselves.

Elayna and I both absolutely love this book! I loved it when I was a kid and it feels great to pass that on to her. Even when she was younger, it was one of her favorites. She’s always been amazed by the butterfly at the end! We have to read it every night.

Every toddler needs a great potty book and this one is perfect! It’s pink and sparkly, perfect for your little potty princess! It comes with a tiara that you punch out and easily put together (I put a little scotch tape on it to make it more secure) and pretty jewel stickers. We had already made quite a bit of progress with potty training but for some reason she had regressed and was just not that interested anymore. This book got her right back into the swing of things! She only gets to wear the tiara and put a sticker on it if she sits on the potty. Something she definitely was not happy about at first, but now it’s really motivating her! We’re making a lot of progress again!

We just got this book and I’m really excited about it! It’s great for babies and toddlers to begin to learn sign language but it’s great for adults that want to learn to. I’ve always wanted to learn to sign but was quite intimidated by it. Having my daughter sparked my interest with it again. I think it’s a wonderful language to learn and am very excited for us both to begin. She got please, thank you, I’m sorry and excuse me down in no time! 🙂

Another beautiful classic! I’ve been reading this to her since birth. It’s such a sweet and simple book to tell your little one just how much you love them before bed each night. It’s always been one of our routine favorites.

This one is a preschool workbook that gets toddlers ready to write by having them trace letters shapes as well as coloring and placing stickers on the right pictures. I really love this line of work books, it teaches them a lot and get some ready for preschool in a fun way.

Another book with gorgeous illustrations! Elayna has a thing for owls and she’s in love with this book. It’s a great book for learning to count but honestly, I think we mostly love it because it’s just so beautiful to look at.

We love, love, love this book! It’s classic Old Macdonald had a Farm to teach animals and their sounds but in finger puppet style! The picture doesn’t even do it justice because this thing is adorable!  I think I love it more than she does, haha! We have so much fun with it!

This is another workbook but it’s awesome! It’s simple and fun and Elayna loves it, she didn’t want to put it down! This one focuses on shapes and colors and like the one I mentioned previously it’s great for getting toddlers ready for school. I can’t wait to get the whole line!

I hope some of these spark an interest with you. My daughter and I genuinely love them and I know your little ones will too! If you decide to try them out please let me know your thoughts in the comments. What are your favorites? I’d love to know and check them out!

Happy reading! 😀
