Dd loves "reading" books to me, which she has memorized. While I want to encourage a love of reading, hearing the same stories over and over is driving me batty! Does anyone have suggestions for other repetitive (easy to memorize) books?

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Martin
I Went Walking, Williams
Cat the Cat series, Willems
Rat Attack, Coxe*

*This one we got in our random book selection from the library. We may have to buy it. I've also requested other books in this series (Brave Mouse Readers) to see if they are just as good.

There are a couple of other books like Brown Bear: Polar Bear, Polar Bear, what do you hear? and Baby Bear, Baby Bear, what do you see? Baby Bear has more "advanced" animals.
I would also suggest If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (and there are a bunch of other ones like that, Pig... Pancake, Mouse... Muffin, Cat... Cupcake).

On the opposite side of things, how does she feel about wordless books?

Dr. Seuss

Lots of the level one early readers are good for this. Like Drip, Drop.

 

Level A science readers were a huge hit with on of my kids even though they are soooooooooooooooooo boring to me.

In any given week, I get "read"

Dear Zoo
Llama Llama (pick one)
a Duck and Goose board book
one of the Gossie and Gertie books
and any number of wordless books

I'm sort of thrilled my oldest has entered the CVC reading phase, although I know that too will get old quickly.

I am terrible at coming up with book lists, but today my 4 year old and I were reading Mice Squeak, We Speak, and it occurred to me that it is very good for this purpose.

The Napping House.  Uno's Garden has some repetition in the peripheral "activities" not necessarily in the storyline.  Harry Maclary and Zachary Quack has some repetitive lines interspersed with the regular story.

All the Maisy books were a favorite in our household. The typography is bold and sans serif so that eventually, they could really read it as well.
