Last week, I’ve talked about books for a 4-year-old boy. Now it’s about books for a 4-year-old girl. A 4-year-old girl loves books that are sweet, books that are funny and books that are adventurous.
You can pick books from a collection of classics as well as books by authors that are new. If you want the books to be educational as well, look for ones that convey the lesson with a bit of humor because kids remember things that are funny.
Yes, even little girls love a good dose of humor so she can be happy and giggly reading the book! Right below, I’ve listed out 4 best books you can look into getting for your girl.
No Jumping on the Bed! by Tedd Arnold is certainly one of the funny ones. This book takes a look at something that all kids do. The story even includes the favorite parental exaggeration, “If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a million times…”
With cute illustrations and amusing sentences, your 4-year-old will enjoy reading this story over and over again. The book uses rhymes when introducing character names to help a child learn phonics. Long as well as short vowel sounds are presented in this 32 pages book.
The Frog and Toad Collection Box Set (I Can Read Book 2) by Arnold Lobel is a three-book collection. The stories all center on Frog and Toad who are best friends. The tales describe the fun that Toad and Frog have as they go through the seasons.
The book titles in the set are Frog and Toad All Year, Frog and Toad Are Friends, and Frog and Toad Together. These books are kid and parent favorites because the author accurately portrays the things that a child thinks about in life.
Mr. Pine’s Mixed-Up Signs by Leonard P. Kessler is a cute story about what can happen when the main character loses his glasses. Mr. Pine is tasked with the job of painting new signs to replace all the old ones in the town of Little Town. He did the job so fast that he finished in a week.
When he goes to put the signs up without his lost glasses, that’s when hilarity ensues. Because he can’t see very well, he ends up putting the signs in the wrong places.
The sign that tells people, “This way to the zoo” ends up on the mayor’s door. This 61-paged early reader book is one that many parents read when they were children. The sentences feature easy to read words with a story that children love.
The Berenstain Bears and the Spooky Old Tree by Stan Berenstain is one in a long and beloved collection of Berenstain Bears books. The 48 pages book is written with cute bears that your child will enjoy reading about.
The sentences are always short and easily memorized. The illustrations are also so full of life and character. In this tale featuring the bears, the siblings are headed off to check out a tree that looks pretty spooky.
The author covers the concept of over and under, up and down, into and through. If you’re looking to add another one of these books to your child’s collection, don’t miss the Bears on Wheels story. It’s one that your child will laugh while reading and learning.
Okay, most of the titles listed above aren’t “sweet” books, they are more along the line of classic, funny and educational. I figure out that you’ve probably bought her a number of books that are sweet, so why not expand her book collection with some classics and funny books too. :)
