So I got my child (and ourselves) addicted to reading. Daniel would carry a book and come over to me at night and asked to be read to. It’s soooooo heartwarming and I’m really loving how he has started to love reading so much.
If you didn’t already know, local bookshops sell kids storybooks at an unbelievably expensive price. I’ve done all my research and found that you can buy these same great storybooks at a fraction of the price from TaoBao! Here are some of our favourite children storybooks for toddlers aged 2-3 and where to get it on TaoBao! :)
#1: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
This book is a great book which my son loves. He loves pointing out where’s the sun, the moon, the caterpillar and all the food that the caterpillar eats! Within 5 consecutive days of reading this book, he can already complete the sentences for me. :)
#2: The Whole Series On Maisy The Mouse
Maisy and her friends have weird names but I guess it works for kids. Daniel loves some books from these series. I personally like it for the colourful and interesting illustrations that accompanies the easy to read and understand story line.
#3: Where’s Spot?
I don’t know why but Daniel loves this to bits too! He laughs everytime we go from page to page, unable to find Spot the dog to eat his dinner.
#4: Julia Donaldson Books
These are super expensive locally at $12-$15 per book. Very very nice big picture books with interesting illustrations. Get it at a fraction of SG’s pricing on Taobao!
#5: Peppa Pig Series
I had my reservations about this one. I mean, I never really liked Peppa Pig but Daniel loves the tv show and I decided to get him this series to read instead.
