Trent and Kellee’s Favorite Picture Books: Three to Six Months



I am so proud to say that Trent already loves books! He grabs them from me, holds them, stares at them as we read, points at them, and overall enjoys our reading time. It is so special to me!

Through these three months, Trent and I have continued our picture #bookaday. So far we have read 182 titles (91 in the first 3 months then 91 these last three months)!!! Three months ago, I shared our favorites from those months, and today I am so happy to share our top fifteen favorites from these last three months with you.

Favorite Elephant & Piggie
We read a ton of Mo Willems books! I am such a fan! Though I love Pigeon, Cat the Cat, and Knuffle Bunny, E&P are still my favorite.

Are You Ready to Play Outside? by Mo Willems


Favorite Oliver Jeffers Books
We went on an Oliver Jeffers readathon, and these are our favorites that we read during these months (Lost and Found is probably still my favorite.) He is such a superb author!

Stuck and The Incredible Book Eating Boy

We also read a bunch of books that were illustrated by Dan Santat. He is so talented!

Favorite Art (& Color) Book
So happy that I got to read these to Trent at the Hunter Museum of Art. I love that these books teach color through pieces of art.

There are some amazing picture books out there for children, and I am always learning about more that I want to read with Trent! What books should I make sure to read with him? I cannot wait to see what the next three months hold?!

  1. We’ll be having another baby shower soon for a teacher at school, so I might find A Book of Sleep or Oh, No! for them. I don’t know either, & they (like all the others) look great, Kellee. I loved both of your shares about Trent and the books!

    • Thank you Linda!
      Both of those books are perfect baby shower gifts. A Book of Sleep is a board book while Oh No! is a traditional picture book, but both will be loved for years.

  2. AWESOME list! And oh my goodness, those pictures of your little book lover. Adorable. I love some of these titles too – just read Naked! How fun! Stuck and Oh, No! are fun books in my classroom – always great for interactive reading during buddy time. Thanks for sharing these. This will be a treasure when Trent is older so that he can see books you shared together.
