THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN CHOOSING BOOKS FOR TODDLERS
Look for clear uncluttered pictures that are easy to "read."
Little stories that reflect the child's own world are most appropriate.
Books for independent reading should be of sturdy materials since
turning pages is still difficult.
Choose books you won't mind reading over and over.
Children love repetition. Children love repetition.
