Favourite Storybooks for Kids

The Giving Tree

I love reading stories to the kids, not necessarily always at bedtime, but there are some truly wonderful books out there which always make me smile, no matter how many times I read them. The obvious choices, such as Julia Donaldson, what a complete genius she is, always go down well in our house (my kids are 6 and 4) but there are also others which I never tire of reading and equally the children love. This page is dedicated to just that. If you do choose to read them, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

If you have any suggestions yourself, please do share and I’ll add them to the list, no book is a bad book!

  • The Giving Tree – Shel Silverstein
  • Penguin – Polly Dunbar
  • The Adventures of Bert – Allan Ahlberg & Raymond Briggs
  • Trouble at the Dinosaur Cafe – Brian Moses & Garry Parsons
  • Big Mum Plum – Daniel Postgate
  • Someone Bigger – Jonathan Emmett & Adrian Reynolds
  • Who’s in the Loo – Jeanne Willis and Adrian Reynolds
  • Each Peach Pear Plum – Allan Ahlberg and Janet Ahlberg
  • Lost and Found – Oliver Jeffers

  • Dustbin Dad – Peter Bently and Russell Ayto
  • Jennifer Jones won’t leave me alone – Frieda Wishinsky and Nel Layton
