Five Books For Pre-Reading With Preschoolers

Learning to read means more than just recognizing letters and their sounds on a page. It also involves vocabulary and comprehension of what you are reading. The 43 percent of LilSugar readers who taught their tots to read know that there are many different pre-reading activities that will put a lil one on the path to enjoying a book on their own.

In addition to showing your lil reader how words appear on a page, it is helpful to read them classic chapter books that they can sit back and enjoy. By reading them one chapter a night, mama will teach them about plot and characters and instill a love of storytelling that will last a lifetime. Some great first chapter books for preschoolers include:

Don't forget Winnie the Pooh! And children's poetry, like Shel Silverstien and Jack Prelutsky (I know I spelled that one wrong).

I would love to start doing this with my daughter soon, but I'm not sure if she's still a bit too young to grasp the concept (she'll be two in June). We read books every day, and it's been a part of her bedtime routine since she was only a few months old. I hope to instill a love of reading in her too.

My mama was big on chapter books with me when I was very small. We tore through all the Little House books by the time I was 6, taking turns reading to each other. I really credit her love of books to helping me learn to read at an early age (3). Hoping to do the same for my daughter!
