best preschool books for letter Yy

Here are our favorite preschool books for the letter Yy!  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 Yy!

Our list for the Best Preschool Books for Letter Yy

Yellow Ball by Molly Bang Catch. Throw. Uh-oh. The yellow ball is forgotten at the edge of the water. Little by little, so no one notices, the ball floats out to sea. All alone, it travels and drifts into a storm. Tossed by waves all through the night, it sails ashore next day to a hug and a home. Luminous pastels and a rhythmic text tell a story that is exciting and reassuring.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff If a hungry little mouse shows up on your doorstep, you might want to give him a cookie. And if you give him a cookie, he’ll ask for a glass of milk. He’ll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn’t have a milk mustache, and then he’ll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim….

If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff In this hilarious sequel to the beloved If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, the young host is again run ragged by a surprise guest. Young readers will delight in the comic complications that follow when a little boy entertains a gregarious moose.

Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak Ph. D. A fun and engaging introduction to the anatomy and functions of the brain that will empower each young reader to S-T-R-E-T-C-H and grow their fantastic, elastic brain!

Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss The collection features tales about greed (“Yertle the Turtle”), vanity (“Gertrude McFuzz”), and pride (“The Big Brag”). In no other book does a small burp have such political importance! Yet again, Dr. Seuss proves that he and classic picture books go hand in hand.

Santa Yeti by Matthew Kuhn: What do you get when a yeti who hates the cold and dreams of beaches and Brazil runs into (literally!) Santa? A Christmas neither will ever forget!

Yeti Cooks Spaghetti by Russell Punter Yeti is expecting a lot of customers at his Ice Cafe. Delicious spaghetti should fill them up, but how much to make? You can’t have too much spaghetti- can you?

You Choose by Nick Sharratt Imagine you could go anywhere, with anyone and do anything. Where would you live? Where would you sleep? Who would your friends be? This book supports speech and language development, encourages independent thinking and makes decision making fun!
