A few weeks ago, I posted my eight-year-old son’s choices for summer reading. Not to be left out, his four and a half-year-old (that half year is VERY important!) sister pulled out her favorite books that we are reading this summer.
Little A loves books and spends a lot of time choosing what to read every night. I hope you enjoy her top summer books as much as we do!
Summer Reading List Chosen by My Four-Year-Old Daughter
- Welcome to Mamoko by Aleksandra Mizielinska
This is by far Little A’s favorite book! We both love it so much that it tops our birthday gift list too. We have gifted this gorgeous book to most of her friends. What makes it unique are the characters. The first two pages introduce you to a varied cast of colorful characters that you follow through the rest of the book. There are no words beyond a brief description of each character. Kids make up the story based upon the illustrations that flow together through the pages. So it’s a combination of a find-it book and a make your own story. Little A requests this book and its sequel, The World of Mamoko in the Year 3000, every night.
- Disney Storybook Collection by Disney Book Group
This is Little A’s second most requested book. We are a Disney-loving family. We’ve been three times in the past five years, we’ve seen every Disney movie at least 100 times, and we went to Disney on Ice twice recently. So it’s not surprising that one of her favorites is a collection of Disney stories. This book is great because each story is just the right length for a bedtime story and the pictures are bright and glossy.
- Biscuit (My First I Can Read) by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
There are several Biscuit books! Little A gets excited every time we find a new one. This series is about an adorable little girl, her equally cute dog, Biscuit, and their adventures together. It’s an early reader book so I can usually convince Little A to sound out a word or two. She also loves to jump in to read Biscuit’s lines, “Woof, Woof!”
- Angelina Ballerina by Katharine Holabird
- OLD MACDONALD’S FARM (Poke-A-Dot!)by InnovativeKids
Little A loves this book because it involves interactive counting. I have to admit popping the poppers is addictive. I bring this book along when we go to restaurants because it keeps her attention for quite a while.
This is Little A’s list of her favorite books this summer! What are your favorite children’s books?
