It’s a great book for teaching preschoolers about bullying, too! You can find this book on Amazon.

“Stellaluna” by Janell Cannon
Stellaluna is the best-selling tale of a baby bat who is separated from his mom one hot summer night. Along the way, his adventures bring him to live with a nest of birds who accept Stellaluna as part of their family. This book teaches children that although we are all very much different, underneath it all, love and family are what matter most. Stellaluna can be found on Amazon.
“The Rainbow Fish” Marcus Pfister
The Rainbow Fish is the story of a beautiful but incredibly vain fish, who fancies himself superior to the other fish in the sea. Eventually, Rainbow Fish learns the value of relationships through kindness, sharing, and friendship. Of all the read aloud books for preschoolers, this one is a must-have for any library! Buy The Rainbow Fish on Amazon.
This is just a short list of just some of the wonderful books out there that are great read-aloud to preschool-aged children. They’re all fun to read, too. As a parent, you sometimes end up reading a favorite story over and over (and over) again. I always pick books that have a great rhythm or engaging story that I don’t mind re-reading. Whatever you choose, taking time out to read to your kids can help instill a lifelong love of books and learning!
