I love to read, so buying books for my toddler is always on my to-do list. This Christmas, I encourage you to give the gift of reading and imagination to your toddler. We have done just that, below I will outline the books I have chosen for my 21-month-old this Christmas. Here is my list of books for toddlers.

4. Giraffes Can’t Dance
Giraffes Can’t Dance is a touching tale of Gerald the giraffe, who wants nothing more than to dance. With crooked knees and thin legs, it’s harder for a giraffe than you would think. Gerald is finally able to dance to his own tune when he gets some encouraging words from an unlikely friend. With light-footed rhymes and high-stepping illustrations, this tale is a gentle inspiration for every child with dreams of greatness.

6. We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
Have you ever gone on a bear hunt? Come along on this one with a brave young family – four children (including the baby) and their father. They’re not scared. With them you will cross a field of tall, wavy grass (“Swishy swashy!”), wade through a deep, cold river (“Splash splosh!”), struggle through swampy mud (“Squelch squerch!”), find your way through a big, dark forest, (“Stumble trip!”), fight through a whirling snowstorm (“Hooo wooo!”), and enter a narrow, gloomy cave. WHAT’S THAT? You’ll soon learn just what to do to escape from a big, furry bear!
