Sitting down with a book and being read to by an adult is such an integral part of a child’s development. Not only does reading provide exposure to letters, words, shapes, colors, and situations, it is time spent one-on-one with a special person in their life. Time flies, especially the time to sit with children while they are young and share a special book with them. Here is a list of our favorite animal books by title and author, with a brief description.
A Big Treasury of Little Animals – Phoebe Dunn
This book is a collection of delightful stories with adorable photographs of children and their pets who sometimes find mischief.
Stranger in the Woods – Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick
An amazing photographic journey with woodland animals during a winter snow, with clever dialog among the animals.
Teeth, Tails and Tentacles – Christopher Wormell
This is a wonderful counting book with attention grabbing graphics.
What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? – Steve Jenkins and Robin Page
A clever book describing animal adaptions and their tails.
A Wild Cowboy – Dana Kessimakis Smith
This is a cute story about an imaginative little cowboy who lives in the city, with some furry animals to round up.
I hope you enjoy this list of books and can find a title to share with children special to you. I appreciate any suggestions to add to our bookshelf!
