Voices & Sounds - Best Read Alouds for Young Children

What are some titles that are the most fun for children 0-5 to hear read aloud. I'm thinking books where different voices or sounds are used to keep the attention of youngsters.

message 3: by Carol (new)

Carol Hunter I agree with Traci...Click, Clack, Moo should be added.


message 4: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Brewin New Sidney Snail book coming out in February.


message 5: by Joyce (new)

Joyce I have read all the Mo Willems books to my grandson. They are the best ever and have stuffed animals to go with them. My two year old grandson takes his "knuffle bunny" to bed every night.


message 6: by Joyce (new)

Joyce Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. also has a DVD so children can sing the alphabet to music. Once you hear the song, it sticks in your head forever!


message 7: by Lanica (new)

Lanica In the upper right there's a place to add books to the list. Put info in the 'find/add books to list' area and then pick the titles you want to add...


message 8: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Hamilton Thanks for sharing this list, you've given me some great ideas for read-alouds.


message 9: by Virginia (new)

Virginia You really should add Cowboy and Octopus by Jon Scieszka, Ping pong pig by Caroline church, I Ain't gonna paint no more By Karen Beaumont, and That Yucky love thing by Michael Catchpool


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You can add books to the list; the place to do it is "add books to this list" right next to "all votes," at the top of the list.


message 11: by Kaiya (new)

Kaiya thank you for sharing this list


message 12: by Jocelyn (new)

Jocelyn There's a youtube video of Michael Rosen performing "Going on a Bear Hunt". It's a great read aloud with movement so the kids can be active.

Danica Midlil You know 0-5 is a very large span. A huge amount of growth happens to children in those five years and their book needs change along with them. Books that are great for toddlers aren't as interesting for preschoolers. Clumping them all together like this can be misleading for people who wonder why their child is losing interest in a "great" book. It might not be age appropriate.


message 14: by Lanica (last edited Sep 14, 2011 10:52AM) (new)

Lanica Yeah, I thought about that when I started the list; however, I figured that parents would know enough about their kids likes and dislikes to pick and choose the best for their needs. A variety of lists for different ages would have a lot of redundancy. I had to decide which way to go...so I picked this way. You're welcome to create lists for each developmental stage if you think that would be more useful.


message 15: by Audrey (new)

Audrey This is a great list. I do, however, have one addition. No child should be allowed to turn six without being introduced to The Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone.


message 16: by Ella (new)

Ella Love Love Love!!!!!!!!


message 17: by Ros (new)

Ros The Perfect Potty Zoo: The Funniest ABC Book

Perfect potty companion!
It is cute, funny and silly with great colorful pictures.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You add books at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."
