Ten top books for toddlers

In 2013 the Christian Science Monitor surveyed parents about their favorite books to read with their toddlers. One of the ten most popular titles recommended:
'Go, Dog, Go!' by P.D. Eastman

Toddlers love P.D. Eastman's colorful illustrations of red dogs and blue dogs, driving dogs and partying dogs in "Go, Dog, Go!" The text teaches concepts of position and opposites, such as in and out, up and down, while teaching kids about emotions, personal preference, and paying attention to details. "Go, Dog, Go!" was first published by Random House Books for Young Readers in 1961.

Other books by by Mr. Eastman include "Are You My Mother," "Sam and the Firefly," and "The Best Nest."
