    Hi everyone - I have been asked to create stickies for threads with lists of book recommendations gathered from member posts for different age ranges (0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12, 13+). Here is the thread for the 3-5 age range.

    Glad to see this list!
    Our DD loved reading Milly Molly Mandy by Joyce Lankester Brisley when she was 3-4. Amazon lists several versions as available and one does need to double check which stories are included in which book to avoid repetition. These books are quite retro and have no "scary" elements, bad language, or violence. Good for the advanced young reader as the stories have more advanced vocabulary.

    For fiction: A bunch of books by Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Spoon, Exclamation Mark, Little Pea/Little Oink/Little Hoot, This Plus That, Wumbers), Stuck by Oliver Jeffers, Penrose the Mathematical Cat (for mathy kids), We just found a really cool book called The Numberlys by William Joyce...he also wrote The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore, which is fabulous. Math Curse (and Science Curse, to a lesser extent) by Jon Scieszka. If I think of any more I'll add them later.

    We also like a lot of non-fiction over here, examples being the scholastic read-about-science books.

    My DS5 actually really likes the Fancy Nancy book series by

    O'Connor, Jane/ Preiss-Glasser, Robin

    They are very colorful and engaging visually,and he's learning "fancy" words in a fun way.
