During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter A. Here is our Tot School Letter A Books list.
I have been trying to read about 2 books a day or 10 books a week that fall in the theme for that week. Of course, our main focus is letters but sometimes I’ll throw in a book or two about numbers, shapes, or colors.
I am officially teaching both Cakey and Doodles. Although I’m teaching at Cakey’s level, I try to throw in a book or two for Doodles each week, but a good majority of the books are above both the girls. I love to challenge them through reading this way. Interestingly enough after just few weeks of doing this, both the girls are enjoying and asking for the more challenging books to be read during “non-school” time!
Below is the list of books we read for Tot School Letter A Books:
A is for Awesome by Dallas Clayton simple, fun lyrical book. Pictures depict other things that begin with each letter. Great for Kindergarten – 2nd grade.
Alligator Shoes by Arthur Dorros – An alligator spends the night in a shoe store trying on different shoes. This is such a funny little story! Perfect for tot school and Preschool through 2nd grade.
Sofia the First The Amulet and the Anthem by Catherine Hapka – Sofia is chosen to sing the anthem but when she becomes to boastful her amulet curses her. Both the girls love Sofia the First so this book was a big hit with them! Great for Preschool – Kindergarten.
Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing by Judi Barrett – Easy to read text with hilarious illustrations that cover several different animals and why they should not wear clothes. This book had the girls giggling like crazy! The pictures are just too funny! Preschool-3rd grade.
Berenstains’ A Book by The Berenstains – All about the letter A! Preschool-2nd grade
Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book by Dr. Seuss – From Aunt Annie’s alligator to a Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz Dr. Seuss highlights each letter in a fun way. I have read this classic Dr. Seuss book so many times that I do not even need to look at the words or pictures to recite it. The girls love it. Preschool and up.
Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish – Amelia Bedelia is a housekeeper who does exactly what the list Mrs. Roger’s left says. This book was one of the challenging books but both girls loved it! Cakey especially enjoyed some of the silly scenes. Kindergarten-3rd grade.

Zack’s Alligator by Shirley Mozelle – Zack gets a pet alligator in the mail form his Uncle Jim in Florida. We had to read it because James and I have a nephew named Zack and we live in FL! LOL! Another challenging book for the girls but they loved it! I think we ended up reading it 4 times in the first week! An I Can Read Book for preschoolers-3rd grade.
Ten Apples Up On Top! by Theo LeSieg – Three friends balance apples on their heads and try to out do each other. A fun counting book for preschoolers.
