Fascinating books for toddlers and preschoolers
Babies and toddlers are far from forgotten here at PoundToy, we provide an array of soft toys, activities and books for the littlest ones to play with (or chew on!). Introducing children to the beautiful realm of stories at a young age is highly beneficial to their mental and physical development. In opposition to popular belief, despite a baby’s inability to read - encouraging them to physically engage with a book and hear their favourite adults read is incredibly valuable to their little minds. There are plenty of books that are designed for babies and toddlers, encompassing relevant themes and interactive features that enable them to take that first step into reading. This enables them to gain an understanding of the world around them and the people, animals and places that they come into contact with on a daily basis. Small children are entranced by the way things look and feel, as a result, many books and toys for this age range are multi-coloured, textured and bold to obtain their attention.
Board books are an excellent choice when it comes to selecting the most appropriate baby books, as they are perfectly designed to withstand tiny teeth marks, launches and rough-handling! We stock an assortment of board books that are safe, exciting and fascinating for the littlest of children. One highly popular topic that is adored by babies and toddlers is animals. Reading (and even performing in most instances) animal themed board books allows toddlers to discover interesting sounds, colours and words as they evolve their literacy skills and world awareness.
Remember - reading does not always need to be savoured for bedtime! Books can be experienced anywhere throughout the day for many different reasons and intentions. Whether storytime is exercised to get little eyes fluttering at 7pm, or as a morning activity to start the day, a book is the perfect companion for any activity. Reading during bath time can be especially fun and interactive, which is why we supply water-proof books that can be easily enjoyed as you splash away! These books can also be used to introduce self-hygiene practices, it is surprising how much their little brains absorb regarding routines once they are taught in the format of a fun book. Toddlers will adore the idea of taking a book in the bath as they listen to a story whilst blowing bubbles and giggling.

Why is Reading Important for Children?
Reading is a fundamental part of a child’s upbringing and development. It goes without saying that children’s literature has become an integral contribution to the way in which a child is raised and educated. Reading is highly beneficial to a child’s brain development, communication skills and world awareness in general. As Dr Seuss once said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will go”. Reading is an experience that transports children to other worlds, educates them on culture and history and most importantly - advances their development. For a child, having access to books will enhance their language skills, literacy skills and communication skills. In addition to this, whether a child reads alone or reads with an adult, there are an abundance of benefits in picking up a book. Some advantages include:
Providing a child with exciting books will ensure that they engage in less screen time.
Bedtime reading relaxes, unwinds and settles children prior to falling asleep.
The more books that a child reads, the more advanced and extensive their language and communication skills become.
Reading story books enhances imagination and creativity.
Reading with a parent is an excellent bonding experience, allowing the adult and child to explore new adventures and ideas together.
If a child listens to their families read to them, their attention span will lengthen.
Books educate children about the wider world that they live in through the means of recollection of history, cultures and events.
