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.
Many of us can remember a favorite Nursery Rhyme from our childhood. As preschoolers our caregivers read them to us, we sang them on the playground, and later learned to read them ourselves! Nursery Rhymes are a wonderful way to support pre-readers as they develop essential skills such as rhyming, retelling stories, and learning speech patterns.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a fun and engaging story that preschoolers love! Children love to retell stories, and make up their own versions. This story is great for those purposes.
This Goldilocks and the Three Bears Storybook Theater encourages preschoolers to use the story to enhance literacy, social, and problem-solving skills.
Classic rhymes like Little Miss Muffet are excellent learning tools for preschoolers. Keep your preschooler engaged while learning new vocabulary, engaging in discussion, learning to retell & sequence a story and more!
Invite your preschooler to engage in this fun STEM Cup Stacking Challenge!
Pair with the classic story of Jack and the Beanstalk, after reading encourage your preschooler to design a building plan and then build a beanstalk for Jack to climb up to the castle!
