best preschool books for letter Zz

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

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

Our list for the Best Preschool Books for Letter Zz

Zero Zebras by Bruce Goldstone asks a bold question: can you count what isn’t there? Can you count… to zero? Bruce Goldstone takes us on a wild animal safari counting one wallaby, two tuna, three thrushes, four frogs… but absolutely ZERO zebras. Readers will realize the infinite possibilities of counting what is and isn’t on the page. 

Never Touch a Zebra! by Rosie Greening You must never touch a zebra . . . except in this book! Children will love this latest addition to our bestselling range of Never Touch… books. Inside, you can discover a range of camouflaged animals such as a chameleon and an octopus – but watch out, these animals are secret agents and they’re excellent at hiding! Children will love exploring the silicone touches on every page and reading the fun rhyme.

Zog by Julia Donaldson Zog is the most eager student in the class, but he’s also the most accident prone. With each test (and each bump, bruise, or scrape), his dream of earning a gold star seems further away than ever. But a mysterious girl keeps coming to his rescue. And when Zog faces his toughest test yet, she may be just the person to help Zog win classroom glory!

Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell Young readers love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent—a monkey, a lion, and even an elephant! But will they ever find the perfect pet?

Put Me in the Zoo by Robert Lopshire Spot longs to be in the zoo with all the other animals, but the zoo doesn’t want him! In this beloved Beginner Book edited by Dr. Seuss, Spot shows a young boy and girl all the exciting things he can do with his spots—from changing their color and juggling them, to moving them onto different objects!

Hullabaloo at the Zoo by Zanna Davidson This engaging, eye-catching series makes learning phonics fun. Each story introduces beginner readers to a wide variety of phonemes in a lively, rhyming tale. Alison Friend’s warm and wonderful illustrations bring this story to life, encouraging young readers to return to it time and time again.

Kangaroo at the Zoo by Lesley Sims A funny picture book featuring a madcap story about a new kangaroo arriving at the zoo, which uses phonic repetition to help children learn to read.
