The Best Books To Read With Your Kids

As I evaluate young children’s development in my office every day, I can’t even begin to describe the incredible difference between the young children who are read to and those who are not. Even 15 minutes a day makes a huge difference! Parents reading to their children is undoubtedly a very personal and nurturing experience that creates life-long memories. Reading is also key to your child’s early development. We know that language, cognitive, and social-emotional milestones are all effected by reading to children starting at a young age. Reading together is one of the most important things you can do with your kids.

1. The Best Books For Babies And Toddlers

Don’t worry if your kids are too young to learn how to read. It’s still important to spend time reading together every day. It’s never too early to introduce the best books for babies and toddlers to your kids.

2. The Best Books For Preschoolers And Kindergarteners

Whether you are homeschooling your kids, or they are attending school outside of the home, spend time reading a mix of books together every day. On list list of the best books for preschoolers and kindergarteners, you will find both books with words that are easy enough for your kids to read on their own and more advanced books, so you can stretch their reading skills and build up their vocabulary.

3. The Best Books For Elementary Students

As your kids get older, they will spend more time reading independently. It’s still important to spend time reading together every day, both to continue helping your child build their reading skills and as a source of quality time. Every book you read together from this list of the best books for elementary students is a memory you are building. I still look back fondly on the books my parents read with me and my siblings when we were kids.

4. The Best Books For Teens

By the time your kids reach middle school and high school, you probably won’t be reading books aloud together as often as you did when your kids were young. You can still share your love for reading by reading the same books your tweens and teens are reading and talking about them together. The books in this collection of the best books for teens are a great bridge to meaningful, parent-child conversations.
