I babysit so could use some ideas as to what books would be age appropriate. I do like the Little Critter books by Mercer Meyer And Bernstein Bears (are those still in print?)

Just drop by the public library and do some browsing. They'll jump right into your arms.

IMHO, both of those authors are too advanced for a two year old.

I would suggest going to the library and ask the children's librarian for her suggestions of popular board books to read to the children.

If you want to build your own little library, buy some of the books at a used book store or resale shop.

2 and 4 are very different in what they will understand and enjoy but here are some that might appeal to one or the other or both:


Dr. Seuss (anything)
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Runaway Bunny
Goodnight Moon
Caps for Sale
The Little Engine that Could
Eric Carle (anything)
Pout Pout Fish

I'll add the 'spot' books by eric hill, especially the lift the flap books.
Also 'Moo, Baa, Lalala' by sandra boynton, and the 'Max and Ruby' books by rosemary wells were a big hit at our house

It's actually "Berenstain" Bears.

(google Mandela Effect, which I think is a ridiculous but amusing theory)

Richard Scarry books--they are great for finding things, asking questions, engaging the kids so they actually pay attention. Personally, I think ANY book is good. We always had books that were too easy, too hard, and right on target for my kids. They liked being read to, even if we didn't always finish or they turned a page too soon.
