{ favorite children's rhyming books }

Reading is a major activity in our house.  I grew up with my nose in a book and it would be pretty cool if my kids did too.  A big part of our bedtime routine is curling up on the couch in the boys' room and reading a few books before it's lights out.  

Each night everyone gets to pick a book to read.  Sometimes the kids like to read the same book for several days and sometimes they switch it up. I think our longest streak was 12 days of Ten on a Sled.  I can practically recite that one from memory.  They love to read the same books over and over but I don't.  

This is where rhyming books come in.  I love reading rhyming books.  I love trying to twist my tongue around the words and hearing the rhyming patterns that they make.  It keeps me on my toes.  The kids love the silly combinations that are created, especially in Dr. Seuss books.  

Dr. Seuss is my personal rhyming hero but there are also a lot of other wonderful rhyming books out there too.  Below is are some of my favorite rhyming books to read. 

And this is such a small sampling of all the great books out there for all ages.  Each of the books listed above are by authors who have several other books available (duh, Dr. Seuss) and most are available at your local library.  

What are your favorite rhyming books?


  1. Goodnight Moon is my total FAV!


  2. I'm a big Dr. Seuss fan as well but I do love me some Goodnight Moon. :)

  3. I love the llama llama books. They are so cute. My favorite children's book is still Goodnight Moon. I like the smooth flow of it. Noah has outgrown the book. Now he likes to read long chapter books at bedtime. Every now and then after begging he'll let me read Goodnight Moon. At least when the baby is born I'll have someone to read it to again :)

  4. We love some dogs do ....too :-)


I love comments!
