5 and 6 year olds will enjoy reading these stories and they would also benefit from listening to stories to improve their language ability and knowledge. The more words you expose your child to on a daily basis the more they will enjoy reading the older that they get.
Here are some books that you can find and read to and with your child.
1.Drag Love Tacos by Adam Rubin
2.Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! By Mo Willems
3.Corduroy by Don Freeman– All time favorite. This book can be read over and over again and each time the message will remain just as special as it was the first time.
4.Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. -Fun and engaging for beginning readers.
5.“How to Catch Series “ by Adam Wallace – They have so many characters to choose from in the series. You can choose the books based on your child’s interest whether it be dinosaurs, mermaids, easter bunny, turkey, elf. These are so cute. I have introduced these books to my daughter from when she was like 3 years old, and they have been a hit ever since.

8.Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson – Inspire your child to create their own world, think outside the box, and instill that sometimes it is okay to color outside of the lines.
9.The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs! By Jon Scieszka – A twist on a classic tale and it is also available in Spanish.
10. Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry – Show your child to love themselves, respect themselves, and understand that everyone is unique and beautiful in their own special way.
I hope these books inspire reading for your little ones.
