  • The gruffalo, anything by Mem Fox, Julia Donaldson, Aaron Blabey. Anything that can be read with a rhythm and rhymes. Your childrens’ favourite books will be the ones you enjoy reading to them.

  • I’ve always loved Dr Seuss book but if you are looking for picture books I have written three, ‘Nanna’s Storm, Nanna’s Boot Camp and My Mob at Christmas.’ http://www.morrispublishingaustralia.com/gondor-writers-centre-books.html

  • My toddler grandkids love any of the Peppa Pig books. Lift the flap books are still favourites, such as Spot lift the flap, and aslo Hairy Maclary books. Classic fairy tales like Goldilocks and the three bears and The Gingerbread Man are popular as well.

  • The cranky bear serious is a great hit with my 4.

  • Can’t go past ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ you can get clothes and toys of this now as well.

  • My son loves the dr seuss books especially scrambled eggs super.

  • A favourite in our house is “Dear Zoo”. It’s a lift the flap book. Both of my children have loved it.

  • Oh yes, all the books by Mex Fox!! She’s such a wonderful writer! Everybody should read her books!! :-)

  • We love a wide range of books and we are regular library users. We all get to read lots of books as the library has a wealth of books.

  • We love Pig the Pug, That’s not my…, Where is the Green Sheep, Guess how much I love you, any Spot the Dog books. My daughter is 15 months!
