Here are our favorite preschool books for the letter Hh.  We love going to the library and finding new books each week {or so}!!

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, than 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.

Our list for the Best Preschool Books for the Letter H

Hug by Jez Albourough is the sweetest little board book that you’ll ever pick up.  The only word in the book is “HUG!”  So you’ll definitely be teaching your child the “hhh” sound.  A sweet little baby monkey just wants a hug from his mama <3

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson teaches a child that they can build and create anything with their imagination.  A beloved classic.

Old Hat, New Hat by Stan & Jan Berenstain teaches that new isn’t alway better.  Brother Bear takes a trip to the hat store and a fun, rhyming shopping excursion ensues.  I loved this when I was a kid, and my children love it too!!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is the classic of classics.  The little caterpillar eats through all his fruits and he was still hungry!  Then he eats junk food and a leaf and he

Hello, Hello by Miriam Schlein shows children how animals greet one another.  This sweet and touching book will enlighten your child to the magic of the animal kingdom.


Henry’s Awful Mistake by Robert Quackenbush is the hilarious account of a rather dimwitted duck who finds an ant in his kitchen.  This book had me laughing so hard I was in tears.  Where has this book been all my life?!  My son and I love it!!

Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion will teach your child to take a bath.  Or, it will teach them to try to get as dirty as Harry.  Either way, this fun book has had children laughing for over 50 years.

The Little Red Hen by Paul Galdone — this is the classic adaptation of the nursery tale.  A little hen gets to work growing wheat and baking bread all by herself.  This story is an excellent lesson in why we should help others.

Hedgie’s Surprise by Jan Brett tells the story of Henny the Hen and Hedgie the Hedgehog and how they save Henny’s eggs from the greedy Tomten.

The Hat by Jan Brett shares another story about Hedgie, and how he deals with the other animals laughing at him.  All while having the last laugh himself!  A clever story about kindness.

Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss is just about the sweetest children’s book you’ll read.  Sweet Horton agrees to keep a lazy bird’s egg warm, and he shows the power of perseverance even in the most absurd circumstances.  This book is powerful and is probably Seuss’ best.Who could forget the sweet elephant, Horton, in Horton Hears a Who! by Dr. Seuss, the beloved sequel to Horton Hatches an Egg!!

The Little House by Virginia Burton is one of my absolute favorite books for children.  Nostalgically written about her own childhood home, the little house was built in the country and adapts to becoming an abandoned city house.  The story is heartbreaking, but the ending will leave you crying tears of joy!  A perfect picture book.

A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle Join Hermit Crab as he learns an important lesson about growing up: For every friend and adventure left behind, there are new ones just ahead!

Find Your Happy by Emily Coxhead Cheerful Sloth shares the ways he feels better when he’s mad or sad or scared, in this joyful and imaginative book of feelings.

The Hare and the Tortoise retold by Lesley Sims Hares are fast and tortoises are slow – everyone knows that!

For thousands of years, children and adults have been telling and retelling this tale, which always brings a smile. This latest version comes with free online audio.

Hats Off! by Bernd Penners Hats off to you, when you help the animal friends choose which hat to wear! This board book comes with 5 plastic hat stickers that can be used again and again (and cleaned with cold water when they get dirty) for endless fun!

I’m a Hungry Dinosaur by Janeen Brian This rhyming picture book about our favorite little dinosaur (I’m a Dirty Dinosaur) is now hungry for cake! Shake, stir, mix, bake . . . .

  1. I’ve considered reading aloud during mealtimes, too. But if I do that, I don’t get time to eat. I have to eat while the little ones are quiet. How do you do it?

    Growing up I loved Harry the Dirty Dog!! There are few people that I’ve met who know about it.

    1. Alisa, I sit with the kids and eat, and then when I’m done, I read! The kids know that they have to wait until I’m done — I should clarify!! This helps them to sit in one place for a while too because they love books!!
