Top Picks for Children's Books

A great children’s book entertains, teaches reading skills, or calms a child before bedtime. But the benefits of reading go far beyond these obvious facts. Reading at a young age:

Strengthens bonds with parents

Primes children for academic success

Increases vocabulary and language skills

Establishes logical thinking patterns

Helps with concentrate and focus

Teaches new things and concepts

Develops communication skills

We offer a carefully selected assortment of children’s books at Fundamentally Toys in Houston, Texas.  Pigs, cats, ducklings, pandas, gorillas, zebras, and bunnies are just a few of the delightful characters that fill the pages of some of our favorite and popular children’s book picks:
