What’s Your Favourite Children’s Book?

Today as we snuggled up on the sofa for a great PJ day we decided to plough our way through our substantial children’s book collection. We have read around 25 different books today but these are our favourites:

C’s favourite book

The Fearsome Beastie

Here is a short exert from the book

We love the sinister twist on the standard fairy tale and the great illustrations. You can read our full review HERE

LissyLou’s favourite book

Sometimes I Like to Curl up in a Ball 


A lovely, sweet story about Little Wombat, this is one of a series of stories about Little Wombat and I am going to buy more as they are fun, easy to read stories and the little wombat is really cute! A great children’s book.

My favourite book

Dinosaurs Love Underpants 



This is my favourite as it tells the tale of why Dinosaurs are extinct. Really easy to read and it features great illustrations. I know it off by heart and I never groan when C asks for this one at bedtime!

My favourite bit is when we have finished the story and we talk about all the underpants in the back of the book!


I’m always looking for great new books to add to our collection so what are your favourite children’s books?

I’m tagging some lovely bloggers to tell me their favourite Children’s books in the hope for some great recommendations especially with Christmas on the horizon! So here goes:

What’s Your Favourite Children’s Book? — 9 Comments

  1. ‘What the ladybird heard’ by Julia Donaldson is a Little miss favourite, but to be honest she loves all of her books ‘Sharing a shell’ is another of hers which we love. ‘Hug’ by Jez Alborough is a very simple book with not many words but you can talk about the pictures and it’s very sweet.

  2. We love the Hungry Caterpillar, my daughter loves counting all the food and seeing the butterfly at the end. The Tiger That Came To Tea is another favourite and the Mog the cat books. I remember all these from when I was little which makes it even nicer reading them to my children. My daughters current favourites (these change on a weekly basis!) are Peely Wally, about a bird who lays a spotty egg and a book called Again, about a baby dragon who doesn’t want to go to bed and at the end of the book he blows flames out of his nose and there is an actual hole in the back cover of the book where the flames have ‘burnt a hole’, lol!
