Mom's top 10 book list for toddlers

The Monitor asked parents to submit their favorite books to read with their toddlers in an informal Facebook survey. Our survey revealed that many of the books that parents cherish most are those that they remember reading as children. Here are the top ten recommendations of stories that are sure to hold up through endless readings – we can't make any promises about the pages of the book, though.

2. 'Go, Dog, Go!' by P.D. Eastman


Toddlers love P.D. Eastman's colorful illustrations of red dogs and blue dogs, driving dogs and partying dogs in "Go, Dog, Go!" The text teaches concepts of position and opposites, such as in and out, up and down, while teaching kids about emotions, personal preference, and paying attention to details. "Go, Dog, Go!" was first published by Random House Books for Young Readers in 1961.

Other books by by Mr. Eastman include "Are You My Mother," "Sam and the Firefly," and "The Best Nest."
