ahh! Children books! You can never tire of them, or own enough! Am I right? Unless you are Brandon, who thinks we don’t need any more 🙂 Kidding — But in all reality, I always remind him that we need to keep buying more books so we don’t have to read the same book over and over AND OVER again 🙂 Today I wanted to share our Top 25 Best Children’s Books on Amazon. All 25 of these books on Amazon are books we have and love! I also included several below that were highly recommended by so many of you. After hearing your suggestions I quickly made a big order. We can’t wait to get them in the mail! So, a big thanks to you all.
I believe that the best gifts to give a new mom, or even a child on their birthday is new books. It’s fun to see what books are people’s favorites from their childhood, or their all time favorite books to read as a family. It really is a gift that really keeps on giving. When I had Lucy, my friends threw me a small baby shower, my friend that hosted asked if there was anything that we needed or wanted. I told her books! Ever since then, I am sure to include a few of our favorite books to any new mama at her baby shower. It’s a gift that they can use now and later.
In today’s post you can find all our Top Books on Amazon, one of our favorite family traditions that involves books, and a fun way to up-cycle books and give them to a new home. See it all below.
TOP 25 BEST CHILDREN’S BOOKS ON AMAZON
Such a fun little spin off of the original Old MacDonald had a Farm song. It was a great book for teaching Edison the correct names of construction trucks.
A classic! I have loved using this book for helping Edison with counting and learning how to point and count himself. The little holes in the book are the perfect visual for them to count on their own.
We have a few from this series. But this one is our very favorite. Edison has it pretty much memorized.
The best bedtime book. I love reading it after bath time when the kids are nice and clean!
5// I’m A T.Rex
If your child loves dinosaurs, this book is a perfect choice. We love any books from the Little Golden Book collection.
6// The Wonky Donkey
Easily a new favorite around here for us!!! It’s such a fun read and gets us all laughing. Edison also loves that he can tell our Amazon Alexa to sing The Wonkey Donkey song during quiet time. I hear him telling alexa at least a dozen times in a row haha
One of our newest books. With one thing that has occurred during 2020, I love that my eyes have now been open to helping teach my children this exact concept. That we are different but really WE ARE THE SAME! This book is an absolute must.
8// All Better!
This book is a family favorite. Plus it’s interactive. There are 5 little bandages that are reusable that need to be placed on the characters owies. So cute. Plus it’s a great reminder any time Edison gets a big scratch and doesn’t want to clean it, I remind him of the book we read.
I have read this to my babies from the very beginning. I remember reading it to Edison when he was just a few weeks old. Same for Lucy.
We loved this book so much we just ordered a few more from this series. It’s a crack up! And so relatable
Another great interactive book. These Shine-A-Light series are so cute. All you need is a flashlight, or the flashlight on my phone, which is what we use. Edison holds it and shines the light thought the pages, which then shows a fun new hidden picture.
I think I love this book more than the kids. I always end up laughing through it. It’s such a genius story and so relatable.
Easily Lucy’s favorite book. If you have a new baby, this book is an absolute must!
I absolutely adore this book! I read it daily to the kids. It is a great way to teach little ones where their eyes, nose, hair etc. is. Plus it’s just so adorable.
15// Dear Zoo
Another one that is Lucy’s favorite at the moment. She loves the last page with the dog and with crack up when she sees while panting like a dog. You can tell she is so proud of herself. The cutest thing to witness.
16// Noisy Farm
Another great book for babies and young toddlers. With real pictures of the animals and actual noises, it sure is a lot of fun.
17// Do Cows Meow?
We got this book earlier this year and it is so much fun. It’s a great flip book for Lucy and great rhymes for Edison.
Just like the cute song I used to sing growing up. I love that you can read it to your kids, or act it out!
We loved this book so much we got the Polar Bear, Polar Bear, what do you hear book from the series, because they are so cute. It’s fun to let the child guess what animal is coming next.
20// Giraffes Can’t Dance
We just ordered this one from your recommendations. We Can’t wait to read.
21// The Human Body
Another great Shine-A-Light book.
I love this book as it helps to learn numbers and counting. It keeps things fun for the kids.
Just the name of this book is so cute, and who doesn’t call their kid stinky face? haha
24// Around The Farm
This 30 button sound book is always favorite around here. I love that it is a book that Edison can read on his own too.
This book is for older toddlers and children. Each page is filled with the same/similar animals or creatures and you have to spot, match, count or name. It really keeps Edison entertained for awhile.

LOOKING FOR A NEW FAMILY TRADITION OR VACATION SOUVENIRS — TRY THIS
Starting our own family traditions was always something I looked forward to before having kids and after hearing my friend do this with her children, I knew it was something I wanted to create for my family.
As you travel with your family, look for a book about the city or country you are visiting. We have been doing this every since we went to Italy with Edison.
I love that it is something that holds a memory, and is a great reminder to the children of where they have been.
I usually write inside the book the month and year we traveled as well as the children’s name who traveled there.

GIVE YOUR OLD BOOKS TO A NEW HOME
One of our friends for Lucy’s recent birthday gave us some of their families old books they no longer used and I LOVED the idea. Her kids are getting older and no longer read the young flip books or touch and feel books so instead of taking them to goodwill she found a few lightly used books, tied them with ribbon, and re-gifted them to Lucy.
It’s so simple, and honestly the sweetest gesture!
Plus it’s a fun little activity you can do with your own kids to have them pick a few books they no longer read to gift to a friend who will love and appreciate them more.
