  1. Kelly, this is such a great list of books! Some I would have probably never picked up because the cover didn’t look “cute” enough.

    I think I want to buy the “Keep our Secrets” book for me too. Sounds so fun!

    Some of our favorites are “Giraffes Can’t Dance” and of course, any of Sandra Boynton’s books are fun. “Barnyard Dance” is a perfect book for the wiggles.

  2. Thanks for the list!
    My kids have all love Clap Your Hands by Lorinda Bryan Cauley. Rhymes make it even more fun!

  3. I need this list, thank you for putting it together. I also like finger puppet books like little learners Itsy bitsy spider. My 2 yo love the puppet, especially when it gives her kisses and tickles.

  4. Thanks for sharing, I volunteered to read to my 2 year old’s preschool class and was looking for something to get them all involved. You’ve given me some great ideas.

  5. We read Bathtime for Little Rabbit and two other one from the same author (Jorg Muhle) and they also work perfectly. Thanks for the list

  6. My preschoolers LOVED “It’s a TIGER!” They get to hop, roll, climb, duck, and run. I would love to find more books like this one.

  7. A favorite in our house is “There’s a Monster in Your Book” by Tom Fletcher. The monster is stuck in your Book and you have to shake, wiggle, blow, and yell to try to scare it away. BUT, you’ll never guess what happens when it gets scared away!

    1. I read this one to my Kindegarten classes every year, and it is always a big hit.

  8. We love the “Don’t Push the Button” series — my little guy had a gross motor delay so it was awesome he could interact with these books until he was able to walk. He just learned to go up and down stairs!! These make us laugh.

  9. For Germans I found a great new book called “Musala”. It’s about a little lion for children between 2 and 4 years. My kids love it!
