I love reading books with my son! Reading is very important for developing minds and it is a great way to spend some quiet time together. The only problem is that sometimes (or all of the time) our busy toddlers don’t want to sit still and read a book! So how do we encourage reading with our busy little toddlers?
I have found that these interactive books make my toddler want to sit down and engage in the story. Here is a list of 5 great interactive books for busy little ones!
1. Poke-A-Dot! An Alphabet Eye Spy: This book is great at getting toddlers interested with its fun little popping raised buttons! Toddlers get excited to push all of the buttons and to hear them “pop”! These poke-a-dot books are great at encouraging toddlers to use their index finger for pointing, which aides in language development. This book has fun pictures and provides a great sensory activity for young children!
2. All Better!: This Usborne book is a fun interactive book where young children get to place bandage stickers onto animals! This book comes with 5 reusable bandaid stickers that are perfect for toddlers to place on the pictures. Toddlers love the interaction of kissing the animals’ owies and placing bandages on to make everything all better! This book is filled with adorable pictures and great repetition!
3. Touch! My Big Touch-and-Feel Word Book: This book is the ultimate touch-and-feel book! There are many different textures throughout the book for toddlers to feel! This book is great at showing a variety of everyday objects that a toddler might recognize, and great tactile elements for touch.
4. Toes, Ears, and Nose!: This is a life-the-flap book that introduces toddlers to the different body parts! Toddlers will love the adorable babies that are pictured and lifting the flaps to reveal something new. This is a great interactive book with easy movable flaps for toddlers!
5. Baby Einstein’s Amazing Animals: This cute little book from Baby Einstein is great at introducing toddlers to animal sounds. This book contains 10 fun buttons that name the animal and the sound that the animal makes! The buttons are fun and easy for toddlers to press. This is a great book for teaching toddlers some simple animal sounds!
