    Default Small books for a 2 year old?

    Hi, my daughter is turning two and I'd really like to get her some little (in size) books because she loves small books but I haven't been able to find any age appropriate ones. I have only found baby board books or small Peter rabbit ones. The Peter rabbit ones are close to what I want but just a bit too lengthy for her at the moment (not to mention expensive). My aunt has the peter rabbit ones, she adores walking around with them but can't get through a whole story.

    Do you mean board books or just small books? You can get loads and loads of board books suitable for 2 year olds these days. All the Julia Donaldsons (gruffalo etc) are in board book format as are many Dr Seuss. Then there's the little Mr Men and Little Miss books which are small, and the miffy and grug books too.

    Sorry, bit confusing. Small in size but more advanced than the little library board books I have seen which are more like one sentence per page. SMaller than the mr men and grug books.

    I have gotten lots of great books from Target for DD, great for learning names of animals, colours, numbers etc, she is obsessed with them at the moment, she has learned so many new words.

    I love books too so I really enjoy looking at 'gooks' with DD

    They had some small fairytale ones at red dot when I went the other day. I think they were in board book form but were the whole story. Cheap too!

    I like the Mr Men and Little Miss books. A bit old for 2 year olds, but my older 2 loved them and I just make up stories to match the pictures when reading to the youngest one
