When the kids start to be bored by your homemade stories it could be time for a real book by bedtime. Smaller kids are happy with books with a lot of pictures while the older will be more focused on the story. If the gap between your kids is bigger it could be hard to find good children’s books that will make everyone happy. In this case it is smart to compromise and try to take turns with the favorite stories.
Check Reviews Online
A great way to find good children’s books is to read reviews online. Simply type the name of the book you had in mind plus review and see what people say. Some books even have video reviews so that you get a live feeling of the book. These are great and also good to show the kids to let them in on the process of how to find good children’s books.
Don’t forget that you don’t have to buy new or used books; you can go to the library and borrow them. If one story finds favor in your kid’s eyes you can always get a new copy of it later. Borrowing books from the library is a cost effective way to find good children’s books and it is also a lot of fun to freely try new titles and themes. You can also swap books with friends with kids of the same age.
Go for the Classics
You can always go for the classics and you might even have saved them from your own childhood. Ask your parents if they kept your copies of A Cat in a Hat and the rest of the best. If not, the classics are easy to find for cheap prices and you can definitely get them at the library!
