Nursery Rhymes and Mother Goose stories are so much fun to read to young children. They are great for little ones learning to retell and identify the parts of a story.
I've picked my favorite books to share with young children for this theme.
Little Red Hen is a classic that kids love. As a bonus it supports children in learning the value of making contributions. This version from Jerry Pinkney has great illustrations that will keep children engaged.
Find out what happened to Humpty after his big fall in this fun story!
The story of the 3 Little Pigs is such a fun story to share with preschoolers, and often one of the first stories they learn to retell.
Introducing different versions of a favorite tale is a great way to support children in understanding perspectives and extracting the main idea of a story. Try introducing three versions of the 3 Little Pigs then invite your preschooler to compare and contrast them.
This is a basic collection of Nursery Rhymes from Mother Goose perfect for young children. One of the wonderful things about these rhymes is they are short enough to share anytime and easy to memorize.
i think all preschoolers know this one by heart!
No matter how many times they hear it, preschoolers love this one again and again. The pictures in this book are sure to increase engagement.
Itsy Bitsy Spider is a fun one to share during circle time. Try having your preschooler read this one to you!
