best preschool books for letter Ii

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

Our favorite preschool books for the letter Ii teach both the short and long Ii sounds.  We love visiting the library and finding new books each week!! Reading is the most important activity you can do with your child to help them become self-sufficient readers and writers.

Preschool Books for Letter Ii!! Great book lists for the alphabet!!

We love reading books together and we love to incorporate beginning sounds with words — our next letter is Ii! Reading opens a world of imagination and creativity for our children. If I read to each of my children each day, both together and individually, then the day is a success!

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 Ii!

Our list for the Best Preschool Books for the Letter I

Bugs are Insects by Anne Rockwell is a wonderful non-fiction book for early readers.  The book describes the difference between insects and bugs, and the collage illustrations are simple and beautiful.  The book is not too busy, so a child can focus on the material matter — and what child doesn’t like reading about creepy crawly insects?!

The Icky Bug Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta is such a fun way for children to learn their letters.  I’ll admit, I’m not an insect person, but I do love that my children are!! There are also the Icky Bug Counting Book, the Icky Bug Colors Book, and the Icky Bug Shape Book. Super fun and catchy!!

Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni is a lovely picture book and winner of the coveted Caldecott Honor Book.  Lionni’s illustrations are always simple and gorgeous, and this book helps children with early mathematics skills, as it talks about measuring concepts. This could entice some creative non-traditional measurement activities.

Inchworm and a Half by Elinor Pinczes follows a silly inchworm who seeks to measure all the vegetables in the garden. This story about math and measuring follows the inchworm as he eats his way through the garden!

Inch by Inch: The Garden Story by David Mallett begins the popular folk song: “Inch by inch, row by row,/ gonna make this garden grow./ All it takes is a rake and a hoe,/ and a piece of fertile ground.” It travels with a sweet boy who is learning about gardening and the beautiful nature around us.

If you Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Numeroff starts with: “If you give a pig a pancake, she’ll want some syrup to go with it. You’ll give her some of your favorite maple syrup, and she’ll probably get all sticky, so she’ll want to take a bath…..”  And the craziness continues in this circle that never ends…. we love all the fun books in Numeroff’s series.

Imogene’s Antlers by David Small is a book I’ve enjoyed since my childhood.  Sweet Imogene wakes up with antlers one days and a series of hilarious events ensues.

Imogene’s Last Stand by Nancy Carpenter is a fun history book for children, with another girl named Imogene! Imogene opens up her own museum and learns all about our country’s early history; this book is probably more suitable for older preschool and early elementary as it is rich in historical details, but with fun humor!

I Can Read with my Eyes Shut by Dr. Seuss is more reading rhymes from the ultimate children’s author.  Dr. Seuss and the Cat show that reading is fun—even when you don’t look at the words!

I Love You, Little One by Nancy Tafuri is a sweet board book that even older children aged 4 and 5 can love.  Children gravitate towards watching the love that mama animals express towards their children and it helps them feel secure in your love for them.

I Love You Through and Through by Bernadette Rossetti is a sweet story of unconditional love and adorable illustrations of a toddler and a teddy bear who declare to one another in rhymes: “I love you through and through!”

I Can Do It! by Trish Holland is about a small child who thinks she can do everything on her own.  Sound familiar?  Children want to express their independence through working on tasks on their own, and this book will be one that your child can relate to.

I Can Do It! by Pat Thomas is part of the A First Look At series, written for preschoolers.  This book asks, “Have you ever tried to do something that was really hard?” Children learn that they can try, and accomplish, new things if they just try!

I Breathe by Susie Brooks Using their imaginations children are encouraged to try the depicted child-friendly yoga poses and breathing techniques, designed to help them control their emotions.

I Can Be Kind by Kathryn Jewitt Examine ways to show kindness and how that makes you feel. This series of simple board books, which also includes I Can Be Calm, I Can Be Brave, and I Can Be Happy, help the youngest readers to explore BIG feelings with questions to share, a mindful activity and a wheel to play with.

I Want to Be An Astronaut by Ruby Brown What do you want to be when you grow up? A deep-sea diver? A stuntman? An astronaut? When you grow up, you can be anything you want to be!
