10 Read Alouds for Preschool

Here are my top 10 read aloud for preschoolers. These books are so great for children and of course, I love them as well. I think it's really important if the teacher loves the book as well because it kind of brings to live the characters and the story.

1. Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes

Cover artI used Pete the Cat to introduced the color white and teach about story sequencing. It's such a fun book to read and children are quick to get the rhyming and sequencing on the book. You can also have some fun making up songs for each of the color Pete's shoes change. 
2. Leaf Man

It's a great book to use for Fall projects, for which the children will need to use leaves or any natural materials to create something out of it. It really expands children's creativity, which is always a great thing.

3. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

 4. 10 Timid Ghost

5. Red: A Crayon's Story
Cover artI love this book, it teaches children that they don't need to fit or be like someone else to be loved or likable. I think this book teaches children that we most love people, even if they are different than us.
6. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Cover artI love, love this book and the song that comes with it. This is a great  book when you begin teaching about the alphabet .
7. Green Eggs and Ham
Cover artI used this book when introducing the color green and for a story sequencing activity. I love the rhyming in this book, I mean I love all Dr. Seuss books. This is one of my childhood books and I was so glad I used it for my first observed lesson , and the children really loved it. (click here to check the lesson I did with  this book).
8.The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Image result for very hungry caterpillarI wanted to use this book for one of my lessons to teach the days of the week but my cooperative teacher uses this book during the spring, so I couldn't use it. This is great for a short lesson on the days of the week and children do enjoy reading this book.

9. Blueberries for Sal

10. Harold and the Purple Crayon
