These books are fantastic for people that age! I really liked the early books, no idea about the later ones, but being attacked by a mud puddle is something that children find funny - me too.

"Bump, bump, bump did you ever ride a wump? We have a wump with just one hump, but we know a man called Mr Gump. Mr Gump has a seven hump jump, so if you like to go bump ,bump just jump on the hump of the wump of Gump."
Dr Suess is excellent for learning to rhyme. I memorized that a long time ago - decades, and I still remember it. That's Dr. Suess. A lot of children learn to read by themselves with Dr. Suess.

Picture books with a story that pleases the 4 year old. Repetition, rhyming, and anticipation make 4 years happy. Dr Seuss any & all, If you give a mouse a cookie, The camel who took a walk, Curious George, Are you my mother?, Corduroy books, The very hungry caterpillar, The very quiet cricket, Polar bear, Polar bear what do you see? Brown bear, brown bear what do you see? Harold & the purple crayon, The snowy day, Winnie the Pooh, Frog & Toad books, Goodnight Moon, Stuart Little books....

Frog and Toad was one of my favorites to read with my son when he was little.

I have a 3 year old and we have many of the books suggested in this thread. They are all loved by our family. But I wanted to add that sometimes subject magazines are fun for the kids too. My 3 year old LOVES my husband's engineering magazines. I cannot tell you how much time we have spent talking about combustible dust lol. So, if you have various magazines with child appropriate pictures in them use them too because the pictures spark their imagination. Cooking magazines are great to learn to name and recognize all different ingredients.

One author/illustrator I haven't seen mentioned is Kevin Henkes. Everyone in my household has enjoyed his books, both for the stories and beautiful illustrations. Particular favorites are "Waiting", and "Kitten's First Full Moon".
