10 Favorite Books for Toddlers

Henry and I go to the library each week and pick out books that we read together everyday. Every time we find one we love, I purchase it and add it to our own library collection of his favorite books. If you’re looking to build a collection of your own here are 10 toddler books that we’ve loved and I think your toddler will love too! (bonus: they’re fun to read too!)
