Books 5 Year Olds Really Enjoy!

best books for 5 year oldsReading with your 5 year old is a great way to reconnect after a busy day at school. Even though kids this age are starting to read, I advocate reading to them every night. They love a fun book and it helps teach them vocabulary and phonics. Kids this age love to find words they know on the page, so be sure to let them find them. It’s also fun to have them predict what might come next in the story.

Here are some of my picks for the best books 5 year olds enjoy!
