Top Picks for Three-Year-Olds (And Happy Birthday to Us!)

October 25th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Books


Vegbooks is three today! You’ve read our lists of the best books for one-year-olds and two-year-olds, and we’re keeping the tradition by celebrating our birthday with recommendations for three-year-old kids.

Homa Woodrum — whose children are two and four — recommends Mercy Watson to the Rescue, Houndsley and Catina, and the Owly series.

For those into ebooks, Jane Cowles suggests The Wiener Dog Magnet.

Robyn Moore picks The Peace Book from favorite author Todd Parr.  Among Parr’s other wonderful books are The Thankful BookThe Earth Book, and The I’m Not Scared Book.

Looking for some music to accompany your reading, or an excuse for an impromptu dance party? Jennifer Gannett recommends “Only One Ocean” by the Banana Slug String Band.  They use big words in their songs, she says, but the tunes are so fun and catchy that it’s sure to be favorite, even among little ones.

As for me, I have to think back to the early days of Vegbooks, when my daughter (turning seven this month!) was still three. Those first books that inspired me to launch Vegbooks — The Cinder-Eyed Cats and Olivia — remain favorites.
