Repetitive Books For Language Learning

In  Books, Toddlers and Language, I told you about how reading repetitive books with infants and toddlers can be a great way to entice them into using language with you. These books are great for any child and they can also be essential tools for helping children with diagnoses such as apraxia or autism. 

Here, then, is a list of my favorite repetitive books. Is one missing? E-mail me at and share it with me. I'll add it to the list. Happy Reading!
