best books for 3-year old children are brimming with imaginative artwork and bright colors.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (Bill Martin Jr.)
Rhythmic and appealing, this book is a generational classic that parents will remember as a tried-and-true favorite. The story follows a Brown Bear as he lumbers through the forest, describing the brilliant-hued animals he encounters. These creatures are collaged with tissue paper for an in-depth, multi-dimensional appearance. Kids will love how bold and animated each animal looks!
Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things That Go
From the golden edition of 1998, this book is overflowing with 69-pages of multi-colored machinery. Every vehicle to ever come to mind is set in a flowing traffic of station wagons, tow trucks, bulldozers, and alligator cars. Animals of every species are piled behind the wheels, steering towards designated special destinations and jobs. Even the witches on their broomsticks are out in force! It's also educational, encouraging kids to count the vehicles on each page.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Eric Carle)
Another tried-and-true past-blast, this book focuses on the insatiable appetite of a furry little caterpillar. He eats his way through 13-pages of plants, fruits, and shrubbery, eventually getting a stomachache and rolling into a cocoon. As the pages progress, kids will see the caterpillar emerging as a colorful, beautiful butterfly. With pop-ups and flip-flaps, this board book is also interactive! The spacious white backgrounds make colors POP, allowing the beauty and brilliance of multiple earthy hues to shine through.
