Children’s Books Ideas
Kids will often develop a love for a particular book or author. This means that reading those books will be a favorite activity but it also means you can take the theme from the book into other activities.
We have tons of ideas for continuing the children’s book theme. For example, you can create a Cat in the Hat paper bag puppet and make Thing One and Thing Two crafts. We have a “Dr. Seuss” section with activities celebrating the iconic author and his beloved stories.
We also have lots of coloring pages and puzzles to print out featuring book characters. These let the children explore their favorite characters in a hands-on way while they also practice their fine motor skills. Because they are familiar with the characters, they can use their imaginations to take the story further into playtime and crafts.
Popular Children’s Books
Reading to your kids or students has loads of positive benefits. It helps develop strong bonds, encourages creativity and imagination, increases language skills, provides comfort, promotes focus and concentration, and improves literacy.
It also gives them time away from screens, helping them develop a healthier relationship with technology. For young children, it lets them take part in a shared experience that boosts their confidence in engaging with stories. Plus, reading together is an excellent opportunity for parents to provide memorable moments.
One of the first things we do when we start a new theme is to break out the books. Many kids have read Dr. Seuss books, but below are some of our favorites!
Dr. Seuss’s Beginner Book Collection – Grab this book set if you want to have the most popular Dr. Seuss books. Kids everywhere will want to read these famous books!
What Pet Should I Get? – Surprisingly we read this book for the first time last year! It’s a fun story about a brother and sister trying to find the perfect pet. Kids love the classic illustrations and fun, rhyming storyline.
Go, Dog. Go! – This classic book is great for dog lovers and is great for familiarizing kids with sight words as well!
Children’s Book Craft Ideas
Crafts help children learn about different cultures and traditions, boost their self-esteem and confidence. Crafts encourage kids to use their hands, develop fine motor skills, focus and concentration, problem-solving skills and express themselves. We love the way it can help their language skills too.
Craft activities can also be a fun bonding time for parents or teachers with the children they care for!
