2. Are You My Mother?
by P. D. Eastman
There's a reason a classic is a classic. My daughter has this whole book memorized and now points out every "snort" she sees. The simple repetition make it especially enjoyable for toddlers and preschoolers.

3. Here Comes the Garbage Barge!
by Jonah Winter
It's also nice to sprinkle in some interesting non-fiction with the rest of your preschooler's repertoire. This book is especially irresistible if you enjoy saying "gah-bidge bahrge" like a New Yorker.

4. Flora and the Flamingo
by Molly Idle
This 2014 Caldecott award winner is a visual marvel. Flora finds an unlikely friend in a dancing flamingo. There are no words written on the pages, but the gorgeous illustrations do all the talking. Try acting out the ballet movements with your child for some extra fun.

5. There's a Giraffe in My Soup
by Ross Burach
Animal puns are NEVER a bad idea. Combine the fun illustrations with the outlandish idea of finding animals in restaurant dishes and your child won't be able to help smiling.
