With Valentines at the end of the week, I’ve been raiding our bookshelves looking for some books about love to share with the kids. I realize that we haven’t many that are appropriate anymore now that we have a Preschooler and a school kid who’s independently reading short chapter books. What I do know is that many of you have got younger children, and as I put these books into the bag to take to the hospital for the children’s ward and the charity shop, I thought that I would share them with you. These 5 books about love are perfect for toddlers and you can read them this week or any time of the year.
Our first book is the classic Guess How Much I Love You [affiliate link] by Sam McBratney and illustrated by Anita Jerman. It is a lovely tale of 2 hares talking about how much they love each other. With beautiful illustrations and rhyming words, it was a huge favourite for both of my children as a bedtime book. We loved it so much that we have hard copies of the book for the kids which we will be keeping for the future.
I Love You As Big As the World [affiliate link] by David Van Buren and illustrated by Tim Warnes is another great story for toddlers about how much two bears love each other – as big as the world, to the deepest depths of the sea, as much as the highest mountain. It’s a beautifully illustrated story to snuggle up with at bedtime with your baby or toddler.
