Here on Rainy Day Mum, we love sharing books and activities with our kids. For preschoolers, we run a Virtual Book Club for Kids with fun weekly themes and featured books, and starting this month we have a Rainy Day Tots for toddlers and younger preschoolers to enjoy together. So read on to find out the best books for January for Toddlers and Preschoolers and how to join in with our toddler or our preschool online book clubs for kids.
January Books and Activities for Toddlers
We have a fun new group and newsletter for you to join in if you have a toddler at home and are looking for fun ideas for a hands-on book based tot school for them to do.
Each week, we have a fun theme that you and your toddler can enjoy together plus a featured book for the month that we especially love plus a weekly book to go alongside the theme.
We have included affiliate links to some of the products and resources as an associate we may earn from qualifying purchases.
The featured book for January for Toddlers on Rainy Day Mum
Our featured book for the month of January to read together with your toddlers for Rainy Day Tots is Winter by Gerda Muller.
This beautifully illustrated wordless picture book is fantastic to share with your toddlers.
It allows you to tell your own stories, to spot the seasonal changes and to encourage your little one to observe what is going on around it.
For the month of January, we will have this on our Nature Table alongside our winter nature finds and display or winter-themed art we make.
Other Books for January to Read with your Toddlers
Although we will revisit Winter by Gerda Muller time and time again over the month we also like to switch out the books and have 4 fun books related to the January Themes to read together with our toddlers.
Our first toddler theme this year will be Snow and Ice and we have chosen One Winter’s Day by M Christina Butler as our featured book.
