Favorite Books: Preschoolers (Age 3-5)

At this age, your child is more than willing to sit down for longer reading sessions and enjoy more drawn out story lines.  There are a plethora of amazing books to choose from at this age, and could not keep it to one list.  This list is dedicated to our favorite authors; those we have specifically sought out for additional books either because their writing style worked for our children or the book series was excellent.  Some of these books appear on prior lists, but are too good to pass up if you have not already put them into your library.
