Must have books for young kids

young kids reading books

Each month I share a book of the month with my email list. My kids love to read and I know I’m always looking for new fun stories to add to our home libary. I’ve collected all our favorites here and don’t forget to join the email list for weekly craft & activity ideas.


Book of the Month

Monster mama loves me so

My Monster Mama Loves Me So

This month’s book of the month is Halloween themed of course. “My Monster Mama Loves Me So” is a cute story all about how a little monsters mama shows her love. It’s a fun story to read with your kids.

At the end of Halloween season I pack it away with our Halloween decorations and next year it’s like we’ve discovered it all over again!

Past Favorites

Dear girl book

Dear Girl

Dear Girl“. It’s a sweet book that reminds young girls how amazing they are and that you’ll always be there for them!

And don’t worry, if you have boys there is a similar book by the same authors called “Dear Boy“.

How to babysit a grandma

How to Babysit a Grandma

One of our new favorite books is called “How to Babysit a Grandma“. My kids love all their grandmas so it’s a super fun book for them.
It’s basically about all the fun things you do when you stay with grandma.

There is a companion book called “How to Babysit a Grandpa“. We have it too after my daughter begged to get it. It’s cute too but I don’t think it’s nearly as good as the grandma one.

I love you just like this

I Love you just like this

“I Love you just Like This”. It’s a must have if your kids are fans of Sesame Street, especially Elmo.

This book is all about all the ways Elmo’s mother loves him and features counting and more but it isn’t overly mushy in my opinion.

Grumpy Monkey

Grumpy Monkey

“Grumpy Monkey” is about a monkey who is feeling a little grumpy today for no particular reason. My youngest calls it the “mad oo oo” book.

It’s a cute read and a good way to talk about feeling grumpy with your kids.
