    Default Favorite children's book ...?

    After exhausting all library books, I've decided to add a couple of favourites to our own home library. I don't want to waste money on cheapie books as I find they're not as engaging. What are your children's favourite books? My 4year old is obsessed with where's Wally, though not a lot of literacy benefits there lol

    A really old classic which is awesome is Enid Blytons magic faraway tree! Really good, fun, wholesome reading for young kids.

    We have a few with the different age ranges.

    We love: Where's the Green Sheep, The Gruffalo, Hairy McLeary, Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean and some Dirty Bertie books.

    There are heaps more, but these tend to get picked more.

    ETA Cannot believe I forgot Going on a Bear Hunt, The Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar, Always and Guess How Much I Love You...
