The Best Calendar Books Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
There are so many great calendar books for teaching days of the year to kids. It’s easy to find holiday books of all types, but if you want to teach kids the concept of general days and the flow of the year, these stellar picture books are sure to be helpful.
For young children, it is often difficult to get them to understand the passage of the days. They live in-the-moment, and to them, a day can feel endless. Helping them understand the relationship of the day they are currently living to a day in the past or future–well, sometimes that can be a challenge. Have you ever had to keep answering the question, ‘How much longer until…?’
Post a calendar in your schoolroom or even in your child’s room, and spend some time each month talking about the different things you are doing (or did) on certain days. Highlight the important things, like birthdays and holidays, and also the smaller things, like field trips and park days (these are big things too). You can even track the weather, nature observations, or count down to a big day.
Have fun learning together!
