During these times of the year when most parts of the people all around the world are on Stay-at-home orders. Schools are closed, with the only medium of virtual learning. Preschoolers miss going to school, playing with friends and a bunch of activities. Amp up your preschoolers’ learning at home by reading books to them.

As a parent to a toddler and a preschooler, buying books for kids is a great way to do screen detox at home and keep kids busy in a positive way.

For the most part, kids develop a love for reading if you are successful in incorporating it into your child’s life by buying books. Setting up a reading corner for your kid(s) in his room where books are in his arm’s reach.

Your child develops a love for reading if you are in the habit of buying books and allowing your child to learn and explore as they grow up.

Early Learning Books for 3 to 5-year-old kids

Keep kids’ books at home for every day learning without having your child feel stressed out. Typically, at this age kids do not have a longer attention span so it is very likely for them to get bored. That being said, keep it short and fun. Have your child absorb new things every day little by little – in an effective learning way.

Some of these books I have at home for my 4 year old and I absolutely love them.

1. Letters and Numbers Book

If you want to have your child learn about numbers and letters in a fun way then this book is a great read. Paw patrol is kids favorite these days. This book comes with stickers and some basic math concepts too. The recommended age for these books is 3 to 7 years.

2. kids activity books for 3 years old

This could be an amazing activity book for your 3-year-old to keep him busy while you could get done with some chores, waiting at doctor’s visit, plane travels or making phone calls.

3. Kids who love the coloring books

No doubt kids love coloring and doing it with mom is even more fun. So if you want to have some one-on-one time with your little one then this could work very well.

4. Activity book 

This book could have your kid busy and away from screen time. Kids love activities. My son always wants me to play with him and sometimes I don’t have any more ideas left to play with him. However, If you have a babysitter for your kids, then this book would be very engaging and productive for them too.

5. Letter and numbers Tracing activity book

Every kid has to learn how to write and tracing is the beginning. If you think your kid is going to enjoy this stage of learning then you definitely need to have this book. Just make sure you have spare erasable markers at home.

6. Vehicles learning books

If your kids are like mine then you have to have this. My son is not even 3 yet and he is so much into all sorts of vehicles. Cars and other vehicles are the only things he would notice in every book and loves reading only those pages time and again. my daughter is one and she loves cars too. Out of her girly cute cars, she would play with her brother’s cars and that’s a huge fight. Well, that being said, if you have someone like them at home, you need to have this.

7. Words book

I believe it’s a must-have for every household as your child wants to learn more and more vocabulary. They are like a sponge and they have all the capabilities of absorbing so much in their tiny little brains, that’s just incredible.

8. kids who love dinosaurs

Although dinosaurs are extinct now but kids are never done learning about them. Every kid would know what are dinosaurs and they LOVE learning about their different names and types. My son even imitates all those sound dinosaurs might have made. If your kids are into these amazing creatures then you might want to surprise them.

9. Everything in one book

Well, every child has their own set on interests and they would love learning about those things. This book has bits of almost everything in the universe. Try and get to know what interests them and you will be surprised. This book sure is going to go a long way.

10. Counting cars

This is a great book if you want your child to learn to count especially if he/she is into cars. My son would love this one and it won’t take long to teach him about counting.

11. Kids who love trucks

This vehicles oriented cars would be a great gift for boys although some girls do love vehicles more than dolls. However, if you know your child is going to love this book about trucks, you might want to get it for him/her.

12. Reading and story telling books

This book talks about being grumpy and how ones mood impact others too. Very good quality and interesting book it is.

13. Writing book for preschooler

I love this book by School Zone. I do these writing sessions with my 4-year-old. I highly recommend every parent must have this at home for writing practice for preschoolers.

14. Sight words books

Developing an ability to recognize sight words for 4 to 5 years old is essential for reading skills. First little readers has a bundle of books that are awesome for sight words recognition. These are easy to read and understand.

Writing Essentials you may need at home

These are my recommendations about books for preschoolers. as I have said, the love for reading can only be planted if you buy books and have that small library kind of atmosphere set up at home. You kids definitely going to love this. To have all those books in one place can get this bookshelf for your kids which is not overwhelming for them to grab a book.
