Here are our favorite preschool books for the letter Tt!  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 Tt! {This post contains affiliate links, please see my disclosure policy.}

Our list for the Best Preschool Books for Letter Tt

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein “Once there was a tree…and she loved a little boy.” So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein. This moving parable for all ages offers a touching interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another’s capacity to love in return. Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk…and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave. This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation.

The Train to Timbuctoo by Margaret Wise Brown This beloved story from 1951, about a big train and a little train that have just left Kalamazoo, has captured the imaginations of generations of children. “Clackety-clack—clackety-clack—pocketa-pocketa-pocketa”—down the track they go! 

Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel Once upon a time there were two good friends, a frog and a toad… From writing letters to going swimming, telling stories to finding lost buttons, Frog and Toad are always there for each other – just as best friends should be.

A Tree is Nice by Janice May Udry Trees are beautiful. They fill up the sky. If you have a tree, you can climb up its trunk, roll in its leaves, or hang a swing from one of its limbs. Cows and babies can nap in the shade of a tree. Birds can make nests in the branches. A tree is good to have around. A tree is nice.

Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester Tacky likes to do splashy cannonballs and greet his friends with a loud, “What’s happening?” His fellow penguins find his odd behavior somewhat bothersome. But when fearsome poachers come to the iceberg hunting for penguins, Tacky’s odd ways may be just the thing that saves the day. This is a delightful tale about being true to yourself—even when it means being a little different from everybody else.

The Bee Tree by Patricia Polacco When Mary Ellen gets bored with her reading, Grandpa knows a hunt for a bee tree is just what she needs. Half the town joins the exciting chase, but it’s not until everyone returns home that Mary Ellen makes a discovery of her own: Sometimes, even the sweetest of things must be worked for.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr A tiger comes to tea at Sophie’s house and eats and drinks everything in sight, so that there is nothing left for Daddy’s supper.

Thumbelina by Hans-Christian Andersen Thumbelina is so small she sleeps in a walnut shell bed with a rose petal sheet. One day, a toad steals her away from her home and keeps her captive on a lilypad, until some fish set her free to find her way through the countryside.

The Three Little Pigs by Paul Galdone Three little pigs set out to seek their fortune. Each pig builds himself a house: one of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks. When a hungry wolf huffs, and puffs, and blows in the houses of two little pigs, the third pig realizes that he might need more than a sturdy house of bricks to keep the wolf away!

Tikki Tikki Tembo by Arlene Mosel This book tells the story of a Chinese boy with a long name who falls into a well. It invents a myth to explain why Chinese names are so short today.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff retold by Mac Barnett Once there was a bridge and a terrible and VERY hungry troll lived underneath it. When the three Billy Goats Gruff decide to clip-clop across the bridge to get to the grassy ridge, the troll is already imagining all the way to prepare a delicious goat dinner. But the troll underestimates those seemingly sweet but oh-so-savvy goats! 

Time for Bed by Mem Fox Darkness is falling everywhere and little ones are getting sleepy, feeling cozy, and being tucked in.

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka Twenty-five years in the Big House and A. Wolf is still sticking to his story: he was framed! As for that huffing and puffing stuff? A big lie. A. Wolf was just trying to borrow a cup of sugar to make his poor old granny a birthday cake. Who should you believe, the pigs or the wolf? You read. You decide.

Time to Brush by Bernd Penners Young readers will love matching the five toothbrushes to the five friends and helping them brush their teeth clean, clean, clean! Includes five reusable and repositionable stickers.

Ted and Friends by Russell Punter & Leslie Sims A collection of twelve lively stories with regular, repeated word sounds that are hugely appealing to children learning their first words. Very simple text encourages reading, helping children to sound out individual letters, then blend them together to make whole words. Contains QR code link that brings the stories to life with charming readings.

A Tale of Two Beasts by Fiona Roberton When a little girl rescues a strange beast from the woods, she takes him home. But for some reason, the little beast is not happy! There are two sides to every story, and this funny and charming tale is no exception. Author/illustrator Fiona Roberton offers both points of view in this discussion-starting tale of the importance of seeing the world in different ways.

Table Manners for Tigers by Zanna Davidson Katie Crocodile is having a tea party, when in storm three naughty tigers. “They gurgled and they guzzled and chortled till they spat! They drank straight from the milk jug… Then used it as a hat.” It’s time the tigers visited Miss Molly’s School of Manners if they ever want to be invited out to tea again… A perfect introduction to table manners with humor, rhyme, and a lively cast of animal characters.
