See the Cat is a delightful book that won the Geisel Award last year (this is is given each year to the most distinguished American book for beginning readers – if you’re looking for good books for that age, you can see the previous winners and Honor books here!). The sequel, See the Dog, just came out.
Ty’s Travels: Zip, Zoom was one of the Geisel Honor books. I’ve read it to my youngest probably 40 times this year. She LOVES it.
Fox the Tiger won the Geisel award in 2019. Another crowd pleaser at my house.
