Some of my best preschool lesson plans have been made through themes. Whenever my classes have shown an interest in a particular topic, one of my first ways to organize for it is to find books about that topic. I’ve compiled books for teaching themes, and I’m including some of my all-time favorite educational books.
Over a year ago, I had a Book Fair for my preschool class. I gazed at the beautifully made books with page after page that mesmerized us all. The books were educational, creative, age appropriate, and super sturdy — a preschool teacher’s dream!
I wished that I could have all the books because they stood apart from others that I had seen. Now I can’t wait to share these books with you! Some of you might be familiar with Usborne books already, but if you aren’t, then you are in for a treat!
Without further adieu, here are some great books for teaching themes. Each link/photo will take you directly to the book in my online store which will explain what the book is about, the recommended ages for the title, reviews on the book, and more!
