Balls, bears, boats, ballerinas, and bicycles! So many great "b" words to read about and learn about. If kids in your house are learning about the letter "B", here are twelve great books to give inspiration to their lesson. This post contains affiliated links that I receive compensation for posting. However, I only share books and products that I love on my own. Thanks for supporting businesses that support this blog.
We all know and love Eric Carle, and his colorful Brown Bear, Brown Bear book is great for letter recognition because it has a nice repetition that brings lots of opportunities to find the letter B as you read.
The Berenstain Bears books are always reliable when you want a book that teaches a kids a life lesson, and The Berenstain Bears Kindness Counts is no exception. Brother Bear learns that good things come to those who share with others. He shares his prized airplane at the park even when he feels nervous about letting someone else touch it. He ends up making a kind new friend because of his good choice.
This pop-up book has everything! The letter B, counting, lift-the-flaps with cute little bugs that will get a laugh from kids.
We love how Richard Scarry's books are so detailed with tons and tons of vehicles to find and name. This book is all about boats of different shapes and sizes with different jobs to do.
Have you read any of the books in this series for preschoolers? If you click on the Amazon link, you will see that the Bear books have tons and tons of positive reviews from readers. They are simple, well-illustrated, and kids just love them. In Bear Wants More, Bear wakes up from his winter sleep in the Spring, and he is hungry! He needs lots and lots of food to fill his big bear belly.
A dad and his kids are going on a bear hunt in this bouncy, jolly classic. The rhyming words perfectly match the happy family's adventure into the woods.
This bear and this boy are best friends who do everything together, but there's just one problem. The bear has a crazy to do list that is a million miles long, and he drags the boy all over town. The boy got stressed out! In the end, he teaches the bear to slow down, relax, and enjoy life.
Three friends - a bug, a bear, and a boy - spend their days together playing games, planting a garden, and eating yummy food. Use this book for learning the letter B with preschoolers now, and keep it for later, when you need an easy-reader for elementary schoolers.
Author Tony Mitton is an award winning children's poet, and his story about animal critters sailing on different types of boats is filled with rhyming fun.
Do you find that some of the Berenstain Bears books are just a tad too lengthy for younger, preschool readers? I have to confess that I do too. This is the solution - a collection of Berenstain bears bright and early books. This one is all about - you guessed it - the letter b.
Author Sue Fliess is a preschooler-mastermind! She knows just what will engage readers ages 3-5. In her book I'm A Ballerina, a little girl takes the reader into her ballet class and show us what its like to perform her dance on stage!
A great learn-to-read book about Bess taking her first Ballet lesson. Dorothy Jane Mills is a fantastic resource for kids just learning to read. She has written so many great easy-reading books.
