Books that save a single mom’s day.


I stumbled on this genre of books (“books a toddler will look at for a loooooong time”) when a friend gifted us Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever. My child would spend the better part of an hour looking at this book. He would talk to himself about it the whole time and sometimes stop to ask me “what dat means?” or “what dis is?” He loves this book so much that I wanted to add similar books to his life. I also love being able to get a few dishes done while feeling my child is absorbed in something good. Here are the ones we love so far. Please add your favorites in the comments section!
