I admit, this year the Black Friday’s fever has plagued me too! The letter for Santa Claus is done and I’m afraid something is getting out of hand. Online shops started yesterday non-officially. A book can’t miss under the Christmas tree. So if you don’t know where to start, as choosing English books isn’t easy and especially online, I have selected for you 5 books in English for children under 3s.
A little help from mom to mom.
I have indicated for each the suitable age and why we like it so much.
Reading books to children at an early age (from 0 to 3 years) is one of the secrets of learn English, so that they can associate images with sentences and memorize them.
English books for under 3s – Touchy-feely books
Very popolar, with inserts of different materials and a simple and repetitive text. Suitable for children from six months of age. We have several at home and today we read them together, even if Andrea is almost three years old.
English books for under 3s – Bedtime
A flip-flap book with so many inserts to find. There is a city that never stops during the night to make us find fresh bread, fruit and vegetables the next morning at the market.

English books for under 3s – The most popular
All English children know “We are going on a bear hunt”, the story of a family who is looking for a bear. It is full of onomatopoeic sounds, and you can catch the attention of your little. Read in nurseries and schools, it is the soundtrack when you go for long walks with lots of muddy puddles. From 18 months onwards.
English books for under 3s – A classic
Dick Whittington, according to the popular English tradition was a poor orphan. He lived from 1350 to 1423 and became Mayor of London. A timeless history in which tradition and legend are confused. A myth that is still given at the theaters nowadays.
It is a 4 level book, but we are reading it from at least one year. It is an illustrated book with images and a powerful message. From life you can get what you want. Dick Wittington moves to London to look for luck, but it ends up working as a domestic. A day at the market he buys a cat that will make his fortune.
Finally I conclude with a book about London.

If you are thinking of coming to London, this is a illustrated book with large and short texts that children will appreciate. You’re going to London with Maisy and her friends. You will discover its main tourist attractions, from Buckingham Palace to Big Ben. The pages are not in cartons so go read with adult supervision. From 24 months onwards.
