The Very Hungry Caterpillar
by Eric Care
by Sandra Boynton
We’ll start with one of the most popular children’s books (oh, well, maybe you’ve never heard of it). Yet, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the all-time classic picture book, loved and read with pleasure by kids of several generations. If you don’t have a toddler, you can use it as a perfect gift for baby showers and your friends’ kids’ birthdays! The book is small, beautifully illustrated, and will help you teach your kid about days of the week and a bit of counting.One more cute book from the list of classic children’s books you can start with your little ones is Doggies. It’s fun to read and great for teaching counting. Beware, it might be even more fun for you to read than for your kids to listen to! With so many dogs—big and little ones (and all the noises they make)—we guarantee you’ll have the most fantastic time with the book. Don’t blame us if your kids start asking for a pet after reading it!

I Am Angry
by Michael Rosen
Dadaji’s Paintbrush
by Rashmi Sirdeshpande
Let’s move on to the recommendations for a bit older kids. I Am Angry is the book you can read with your kids to help them identify and express their emotions, especially negative ones. Well, the kitten is angry, and so is your little kid sometimes. You can explore all the range of emotions together by following the kitten’s story while enjoying beautiful illustrations. We promise you’ll both have a great time! (You can also find a book title by plot—in this case, it’s really easy.)A story that can help you teach your kids about love, loss, and acceptance is Dadaji’s Paintbrush. It tells a story of a boy whose grandfather—Dadaji—taught him to paint. When Dadaji dies, the boy is grieving; however, there is a way for him to start painting again and even find happiness in it. We can’t tell that it’s the most popular children’s book right now; however, we promise it’ll win your kid’s heart with many tender and warm illustrations and all the words of grief and acceptance.
