Best Story Books For Young Kids 3-4years age

Toddlerhood is a time of challenges, but it’s also a time of great curiosity – and the perfect time to spark a lifelong love of reading in our little ones. Reading stories to kids stimulates their imagination and helps them learn about their world.

When we spend time with our kids holding books, pointing at pictures and telling stories, they don’t just learn new concepts but they also bond with you. 

My kids look forward to the time of the day when we read their favourite books together. This entire year they have learnt so many new words, sounds and concepts only through books.

So, in this post, I’m going to do a quick round-up of some of their favourite storybooks.

Best Story Books For Young kids

The Very Hungry Caterpillar By Eric Carle.

In this book, Carle explains the entire journey of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly in a way that young kids can easily understand. With big pictures and colourful illustrations, this can be a great starter to teach kids about the days of week, colours, numbers and counting.

The Smartest Giant In The Town by Julia Donaldson

The story is about George, who buys new clothes to look smart, but eventually gives them all up in order to help others. It is a perfect tale to teach kids about kindness and good deeds. The short rhymes, simple language and repetitive structure, makes this a fun book to read aloud to kids.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ by Beatrix Potter

This is the first storybook by the author and one of the best in her collection. The way she narrates the story of naughty little Peter who sneaks into Mr McGregor’s garden and then saves himself from being caught easily grabs kid’s attention. It’s a great book to teach kids about how to explore safely and most importantly, to listen to elders.

The Very Best of Panchtantra

Panchtantra is the oldest collection of Indian fables. And this book includes around five of the best Panchtantra short stories. Each story is written in simple language and comes with a relevant moral like how to choose friends or how to maintain peace, etc. 

Bunny My Honey by Anita Jeram

This is a tale of a lost bunny rescued by his mother. With sweet illustrations and a straightforward theme, this reassuring story highlights the bond between a mum and her babies and makes for a perfect bedtime read with the little ones.

So, these were some of the books that my kids enjoyed reading this year. For each book, they had so many questions to ask and some new things to learn. If you are looking for some good titles for your little ones, do check these out. I am sure your kids will love them.
