When friends and family ask us what kind of gifts to get for Mr. Toddler, our immediate answer is always books or wooden toys. Even before we discovered Montessori, these were always our go to answers.
However, both categories are pretty broad, and today I’m going to be sharing some of our favourite toddler books! Books are a fantastic gift option for little ones. They’re pretty easy to get a hold of and there are so many great ones out there! Since discovering the library, I’ve been loving digging through new reads for my son (in Dutch of course), but it’s wonderful to see his mind grow as he points to letters to recognises and identifies new images.
We like to keep our books pretty realistic and educational. Sometimes, we go for one that’s just fun! Here are:

Big, red barn by Margaret Wise Brown
Mr. Toddler adores all sorts of animals, but particularly farm animals. This a great book for little ones that like animals.

Is there really much to say here? Trains are awesome! My son loves our adventures in the train and certainly, this is a great book for little ones who are interested in machines and things that move!
