Books are a fantastic way for parents and caregivers to connect with children. I love snuggling with my munchkins on the couch or in bed as we read books, learn new things, and just get lost in an amazing story! That enthusiasm and excitement as children learn about new possibilities, see beautiful images, and are taken to a different world with books is just irreplaceable! When it comes to creating learning activities, when I set up themed units, I love looking for a few good quality books to add to our adventures! Recently, we have been exploring our farm theme so I searched out some awesome Farm books for kids!

When it comes to books, I admit I am picky. I love good, quality images with really nice stories. Of course, these characteristics of “nice” and “quality” are arbitrary and are based on my heart and what my children are drawn to.
As a general guideline for myself, I do look for things with real or realistic images. I think this just resonates with my children more. As you can see from my farm books list here, many contain real photographs so children can truly understand how and why things work as they do. I think this allows for more quality and deeper conversations with children.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss.
You can see in this list some books do contain artwork. I tend to choose books with more realistic stories in them, but not always. Have a look, let me know which books you are loving with your kids!
