Favorite Preschool Books: Recommended by our Teachers

In honor of National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday we asked some of our teachers their FAVORITE Preschool Books.  Reading to your child is something daily is a special act you can BOTH benefit from.  It supports their communication and language development and creates a confidence in them that will carry them far in life.  You both bond simply by sharing the story.  The laughs are the bonus!  Take a few minutes to read one of these amazing books recommended by some of our teachers!
