If you teach preschool or kindergarten, you could use a good set of book lists for early childhood. We’ve got what you’re looking for!

Whether you’re a parent or teacher, the single most important thing you can do for your students is to read to them. If you’re looking for a print book with recommended reading lists, I enjoy Jim Trelease’s Read Aloud Handbook and Honey for a Child’s Heart, by Gladys Hunt.
For specific book lists with titles approved by both parent and children, look no further.
Book Lists for Early Childhood
Our librarians have gotten used to seeing me head out the door with a big crate of picture books. It takes a lot of reading to find the best of the best!
A tip: I’ll be adding to this post as we go, so be sure to pin it for future reference.
Books for early childhood themes
I created many of these lists to use with my popular theme packs.
Letter of the Week book lists
We’ve put together lists of our favorite books for each letter of the alphabet! Even if you’re not reading through the alphabet, you’ll enjoy browsing these lists to find some of the best picture books in children’s literature. (Did you know you can get a printable list of all these books in the Appendix of my Letter of the Week curriculum?)
Books that make great gifts
These are some of our absolute favorite children’s books that make wonderful gifts!
Other themed book lists
