Book Recommendations for Story Time

Help your child become a lifelong reader with these rresistible book recommendations. We think you’ll find something fun from this list for every reader in the house. These are picture books that we recommend for adults to read to children during story time. Research shows that reading to children helps them do better in school and in life. Read to your child every day!

We have based our recommended books on various criteria, including looking at the National Education Association Top 100 Books for Children, as well as lists compiled by various librarian, teacher, and parent associations. Another requirement for all of the books we recommend is that they are available for purchase and not out of print. When you click on each book recommendation link you will be taken directly to where you can find more information about the book, read reviews, and purchase if you wish to do so.
