Looking for Books? A few suggestions for the preschooler in your life

I spent all of this summer either being (super) pregnant and running after a 3 year old, or trying to take care of a newborn and running after a 3 year old. Neither situation left me with a lot of mobility and I was so grateful when my son wanted to sit and read books. We went through a lot of books and raided the library for new and different titles. I know my friends-with-preschoolers are always looking for new things to read and I wanted to share some of our favorites.

These are in no particular order, I’m not a paid spokesperson for anyone (although if you’re offering….) and they aren’t specifically “new releases”, it is just things we liked! I’m adding to this list as I clean-up the book area and will try to get authors on there as well. Sorry it is mostly titles at the moment!

If you are on Twitter I highly recommend you follow @MrSchuReads and @colbysharp. They have a LOT of great book suggestions and insights from authors. I wish I could give them proper credit for how many of these books they introduced us to, but I’ve lost track!
