Come explore this amazing growing collection of our favorite preschool books on a wide variety of topics covering animals, seasons, holidays, and much more!
On an almost weekly basis, I share a list of books on a new topic. These picture books are perfect for preschoolers and beginning readers.
Whether your preschooler is listening to you read or he is trying to read them on his own, you’ll find an amazing array of books on a wide variety of topics below.
Our Favorite Preschool Books
The book lists featured below are listed in alphabetical order. I thought this would be the easiest way to organize them since there are so many. However, I have bolded keywords so you can scroll down and hunt for specific topics.
Another trick is to hold down the “command” and “f” keys on your computer. You should see a little search bar pop up on your computer screen. Type your topic in that search bar, and it will search for that word on this page.
And, don’t forget to check back often. Each week, as I add new lists to the site, I’ll add them here. Bookmark this page so you can find it as you move from theme to theme in your homeschool preschool.
