  2. My toddlers love when I read Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel and Alexandra Colombo. It has beautiful pictures and a great cadence. I even have memorized it from all the times I've read it, and they love when I will just start quoting the book. It's also great because it teaches about recycling. I would say it's best left for the older toddler, age two and up. Would be an excellent one for 3-6 as well.
