Rhythmic Books Your Toddler Will Love

Finding a book that a two year old will sit through is hard enough.  Finding one they will actually enjoy?  Yikes!  Some things to look for are books with rhythm and rhyming.  There's a reason Dr. Seuss and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom are so popular!  The rhythm in these books allows for easier storytelling and helps your toddler develop their language skills.  It allows them to differentiate sounds and recognize words.  Plus, they're just fun! 

Here's some more examples of great Toddler books with rhythm:
