Best Kids Books for a Two Year Old

Basket with children’s books.

My son is well into his second year of life. During his first year of life, I wrote about the best books for a one-year-old. He’s now moved on to an entirely new set of books. As he crossed the two-year mark, I saw how the standard elements that defined a good book for him began to change. While thick pages used to be essential, the dexterity of his hands has significantly improved making it easier for him to handle books with thinner pages. And while he previously preferred simple illustrations and short bits of text, he’s now graduated to books with more complex visuals and narratives.
