We have 3 favourites in my house.
EJ loves having Elmers friends read to him everynight before bed and tonight he told me 3 of the colours as I seem to talk to him about the colours of Elmer and he also said 3 of the aniamls so this book in just 1 night has helped him say 6 more words which is great.

LC loves We're going on a bear hunt and we are writting our own version of this and it is called "We're going on a princess hunt". LC loves writting stories with me and she especially loves writting princess stories and we alwasy end up with fiaries beign in the storying too.

RB loves Fox in socks, he will sit with me or his dad and read the whole book to us. I'm going to buy him more Dr. seus books for christmas, we also have cat in the hat which he also likes reading

All the Winnie the Pooh stories. I just love that little world, ever since I was a little girl.
I read it to both my children when they couldn't get to sleep and still do now (for one at least, the other is getting older and reading on her own!)

Well of course you have to have The Giving Tree in there, but I still have to say that my all time favorite book to read to the kids is Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day. I just love the story and it is great when the kids are in a sour mood, which they often are let's face it. It is a comic relief for me, and that always helps when parenting. Also Where The Wild Things Are is a classic.

There are so many great childrens' books out there. Some of my son's favourites are Scaredy Squirrel, The Hockey Sweater, Good Night Moon, If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Stella Luna, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Knuffle Bunny, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, Guess How Much I Love You. My son's favourite book when he started school was the Kissing Hand and must read if you are sending your child to kindergarden.

My kids love Pete the Cat. So much that over 70% of their book collection is Pete the Cat. If you haven't heard of him or haven't picked up any of his books, I'd suggest doing so. They all have a cute way of teaching important lessons.

I did forget one that I recently discovered which should have been towards the top of my list but it just escaped my mind. There is a book called "Swimmy" that is great for kids. It is a simple story but the illustrations are really good and for some reason the kids always love tales about the sea, and this one is also good for activities afterwards, which is something that I always see as a big plus.

Anything by Micheal Rosen! His poems are a delight. He reads them on YouTube. Worth a look!

So many choices out there but a couple of the ones my children loved are The Kissing Hand and Love You Forever. Now they are older and like the Magic Tree House books and my son loves the Diary of A Wimpy kid series as well. My daughter has enjoyed the Fancy Nancy books and Pinkalicious books too. They also like the Weird But True books which I have to say do have some interesting facts in them.

Love you Forever makes me get teary every time! Love that book!

I'm honestly a fan of any kind of kids books. We're really trying to get our little one as interested in books as we possibly can, so for any special occasion we get her books. I got her 5 different Valentine's Day board books, and I also have got some ready to order for Easter...it's certainly helping to build up her book collection! I'm going to need to put in more shelves in her room!

My son loves 'Diary of a wimpy kid' series. He also likes to read the books by Enid Blyton especially the Famous Five series. My favorites are Amar Chitra Katha comics which are based on stories from Indian mythology and history.
