List of Predictable Books

Below is a list of predictable books. Children may predict what is coming and participate in “reading” the book by picture clues, rhyming pattern, and/or repetitive phrases. But first, here are a couple of my favorite books for babies and preschoolers that do not fit the predictable criteria.
