Preschool Read Alouds aka Picture Books

Here is my list of books to read to my two youngest (currently 6 and 3). The two older boys have heard many of these before, but that doesn't stop them from listening to them again! (They still come sit by me when I'm reading Goodnight Moon out loud!!!) Some are new to us so we'll see how it goes. I probably will only go through this once, but read each book several times. Reviews will be posted at Goodreads.

This list is alphabetical because I was double listing too many books. I may or may not use it alphabetically though. I'll probably just grab whichever ones I can find at the library and keep track of what we read so I can make sure to hit them all.

The books in bold are ones we have read and for which I have reviews at Goodreads.
