35 Wonderful Read Aloud Book Videos for Toddlers

I love that our family loves reading books! We read every night, each of our children chooses multiple books to read before bed. My son will choose short books, just so we can read more. Some lazy mornings we squish together on the couch and read until breakfast is ready. I cherish these moments.

My kids also love watching television, but my wife and I are cautious about too much screen time. For the most part, the shows my kids watch are educational in value. I feel, at least, that by watching educational shows they are learning a lesson or skill that needs to be taught or reinforced. Once a week they watch a fun movie.

Proverbs 18:15

If you need some quiet time activities, but do not always want your child watching tv or playing video games, consider allowing them to follow along with their favorite books on video. Yes, they are still watching television, but it is a compromise.

For children who do not like to read, this may be a motivating way to introduce reading. These read along book videos are fun and educational.

These 35 classic toddler books (ages 1-3) are available to watch on video.
