Preschool Picture Book Round-up

Spread the love

Reading picture books aloud to my children (regardless of their age) is such a delight.  There is something especially precious, however, about cuddling up with your 3 or 4 year old with a beloved picture book.  Their bodies are still squishy and lovable, and they snuggle close as you turn the pages.

Favorite Preschool Picture Books Round Up

My youngest child is now preschool age, and I love getting to introduce him to many of our family’s favorite picture books!  There are books we have read so frequently that I can nearly recite the lines by heart.  Some of our favorites (like Freight Train) have had to be replaced multiple times over the course of 5 children as they’ve been loved to pieces!

Amy Sloan and her husband, John, are second-generation homeschoolers by grace alone to 5 children ages 4, 7, 8, 11, and 13. Their educational philosophy is one of humility and doxology, and follows primarily a classical approach. Amy loves coffee, perseveres through half-marathons and weight-training, and starts getting nervous if the stack of to-be-read library books beside her bed is less than 2 feet tall. Get her started on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Homer, or Hamilton the Musical and it might be hard to get her to stop. Mostly, though, she gets really excited about the Gospel. The Sloan family adventures in North Carolina.
