Stories for kids - Board books - Our Top 5

All of us like to listen to stories. For children it is a fun ride to the world of imagination.

It instills in them creativity and comprehension skills.

There are so many story books for kids, each one entertaining and motivating in a unique way.

This post covers the list of our most-loved stories. My son loves these books. Sometimes he likes me to read them out to him, other times he likes to read them on his own.

No particular order, all these are equally adored by my five year old...

  • Baby Listens - This is a Little Golden Book classic written by Esther Wilkin and illustrated by Eloise Wilkin. The story is about a baby who is trying to figure out the different sounds inside the house. This timeless classic has the kids glued on to the book through the entire reading. The variety of sounds described like the jingle of the keys, moo of the cows and clanging of the bells are sure to please the little ones.

The illustrations are simple yet captivating to the kids. The book has been read out to my son since he turned six months old and now he enjoys reading it on his own.

  • The Gruffalo - Written by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffle this best-selling book has turned out to be the unquestionable classic of the modern era. The story begins with a mouse strolling around the forest when it comes across other animals like the fox, owl, snake etc. The mouse creates an imaginary character called the Gruffalo to escape from being eaten. To each animal it goes on describing how wild and scary the Gruffalo is. However being a witty one, it creates a spin by adding that the Gruffalo and the mouse are going to have lunch. When it goes past... Who does the mouse bump into? The GRUFFALO! Now how does the mouse escape from the Gruffalo... Grab the book to find out.

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Who doesn't enjoy this story about a caterpillar who keeps eating and finally coming out as a beautiful butterfly. The story illustrates the life cycle of a butterfly and how in its growing stages it forages voraciously on every day of the week. Kids are introduced to the 7 days of a week in a wonderful way. Eric Carle the much loved author of babies and toddlers has penned down this book. There are many variations to this book like

A must-read book!

  • Dr. Suess Green Eggs and Ham - Undoubtedly one of the best early readers book for kids.

Theodor Seuss Geisel has written more than 60 books under the Dr. Suess series. Green Eggs and ham is all about showing the kids to never give up. Sam tries to offer

green eggs and ham to a moody character, he refuses it. Sam goes on and on until the other character caves in. Surprisingly, he likes the green eggs and ham. Never reject something before even trying it.

Easy to read, with words that repeat for kids to get a hang of how to read a book make this book a delight to the lil readers.

  • The Pout-Pout Fish - A fish that keeps sulking all through the day, with a preconceived idea that it is a pout-pout fish. His friends try to help out but the fish only sticks to what he believes.

Finally, a shimmering fish comes and kisses the pout-pout fish on the lips. It then realizes that it is not a pout-pout fish rather a smooch-smooch fish. A New York Times Bestseller written by Deborah Diesen is a cute story for kids.
