The 5 best Dr. Seuss books every baby & toddler needs

Today on instagram my friend Kyrstn reminded me that it is Dr. Seuss’ birthday! Meadow particularly enjoys Dr. Seuss books, as do most children. His fun rhymes and imaginative colorful artwork keeps a busy toddler focused on the story. We were inspired to celebrate by taking Meadow to the cutest little bookstore in downtown Bend, the lovable Dudley’s Bookstore where we always find a perfect nook to sit down to read. Reading is of utmost importance to our family, Mitchell was a big reader as a child and his Mom kept all of his childhood favorites and has passed them down to us to read to Meadow. Every night we read 3-5 quick stories before bedtime, and we let Meadow choose which books she’d like to read.

Here is a list of 5 favorite Dr. Seuss books per Meadow. Some are actually written by P.D. Eastman, a protégé of the great Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss).  She will read them over and over, and has learned some of her first words, like “Go” from “Go, Dog, Go!“. If you don’t already own these, click a link below to add them to your collection. Happy Dr. Seuss Day!

1.The Foot Book: Dr. Seuss’s Wacky Book of Opposites

3. Are You My Mother? (Bright & Early Board Books(TM))

4. There’s a Wocket in My Pocket! (Dr. Seuss’s Book of Ridiculous Rhymes)
