best preschool books for letter Rr

Here are our favorite preschool books for the letter Rr!  We love visiting the library and finding new books each week! Reading takes a huge priority in our home — we like to read every morning, noon, and night!  Children will love to read if we give them the tools — I hope this list is helpful to you! My four year old son is incorporating beginning sounds with words all the time — and the reason is because he reads.  We read together, and he reads on his own.  Even looking at the pictures, generating the storyline in his head, and looking at letters — this is reading.  

Reading opens a world of imagination and creativity for our children. We are still floating through the alphabet, though in a more relaxed way, and one of the main reasons why we focus on one letter at a time is to find new books from our home library or city’s library.  I will usually collect a small stack of books and read them at breakfast time and try to emphasize the beginning of words. We cycle through the small stack throughout the week during meal or other quiet times in the day. This is a fun way to read new books and reinforce some beginning sound phonics work. 

Reading benefits a child’s mind, a child’s speech, a child’s life. You can read more about why reading is one of the most important things you can do with your baby or child at 10 reasons to read to your child.  And I am making a preschool list for all of our favorite books from A to Z.  I hope you and your child enjoy our children’s books selections for letter Rr! {This post contains affiliate links, please see my disclosure policy.}

He has bigger dreams, though, so he decides to take his show on the road and share his music with the world. He has a hard time finding an audience and is lonely at first, but then a fox named Sebastian appears and offers to take him to perform before the King. Little does Roland know, Sebastian actually plans on eating him. Just as Sebastian starts to lower Roland over a firepit to roast him and all seems lost, the King appears to save the day, and both Sebastian and Roland get the ending they deserve.

Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown In the barnyard there are roosters and cows, horses and goats, and a pink piglet who is learning to squeal. Brown engages children and helps settle them down for sleep as they follow along with the animals from morning to night in the barnyard.

The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister The rainbow fish with its iridescent scales is the most beautiful fish in the whole ocean. But since he is also vain and proud, he becomes more and more lonely over time. Then he realizes that you can’t win friends through beauty. He overcomes his pride and begins to distribute his glitter scales to the other fish.

The Little Red Hen by Paul Galdone When the Little Red Hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: “‘Not I!’ said the cat. ‘Not I!’ said the dog. ‘Not I!’ said the mouse.” They won’t water, cut, or grind the wheat… or help bake a cake with it, either. So in the end, the Little Red Hen eats the cake all by herself as well!

Robots, Robots Everywhere! by Sue Fliess Robots are everywhere in this bright and funny board book – and preschoolers are going to love it! Whether up in space, beneath the seas, or even under couches, award-winning illustrator Bob Staake’s bold and colorful bots make this book a must have.

Red Riding Hood and the Three Billy Goats Gruff by Tracey Turner Red Riding Hood and her new goat friends discover… not Grandma… not even the Wolf… but the Troll! And he’s very, very cross. However, the friends team up to take care of him once and for all.

Room on Our Rock by Kate and Jol Temple There are two ways to read this story. When read from left to right, the seals believe there is definitely no room on their rock for others. When the book is read backward, the seals welcome others to shelter on their rock. A heartwarming story about sharing and compassion.
