  1. I love The Arrival by Shaun Tan. His illustrations are fantastic even with no child around to read the book with!

  2. The Story of Tracy Beaker by Jacqueline Wilson & Nick Sharratt, My daughter is loving anything by Jacqueline Wilson at the moment

  3. hmm,tough decision, there are some really good books in that list, but think I'd have to say Northern Lights – Philip Pullman, it's very clever and thought provoking. I've now got it for my daughter, although she's still abit young!

  4. I've read most of them and they're all fabulous – If I had to pick one, maybe The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

  5. Oh there are so many wonderful ones to choose from. The BFG will always have a special place in my heart though 🙂

  6. So hard to choose! I'd go for The Very Hungry Caterpillar as it's currently my youngest's favourite and one I remember fondly from my childhood. SO many great books though.

  7. 0-5 years old
    The Snowman by Raymond Briggs
    The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
    Where's Spot? by Eric Hill

    6-8 years old
    Charlotte's Web by E B White
    The BFG by Roald Dahl
    The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton

    I'm not going to go on as there are too many to name lol

  8. Each Peach Pear Plum – I've read it so many times to my son I don't even need to look at the book anymore I know it off by heart.

  9. The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas – an acceptable way to approach a horrendous reality and one which every child must be made aware of .

  10. Room on the Broom is great for reading to younger kids. Also, I started reading Hunger Games on my Kindle and it is a modern classic in my opinion.

  11. Several books there that bring back happy memories but my all-time favourite has to be The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

  12. stig of the dump or hairy maclary from donaldsons dairy
    are my ultimate favourites from that list. I even have a couple of hairy maclary books for my 5yr old he loves them. We pick out all the words that rhyme after we read them and they have a fast pace to them as well. We even sometimes see how fast we can read them without making a mistake lol.
