    The hungry caterpillar
    Walter the farting dog
    Snot stew...

    Can you tell my DD has the same sense of toilet humour as her dad?

    Dd (nearly 3) loves a lot of the ones already mentioned- she also likes spot books (we got a box set of pop up ones for her), disney princess books and her favourite that we read every night before bed is 'when dragons are dreaming'.

    if your looking for a beautifully illustrated bedtime book I really reccomend it

    Most of their favourites have been mentioned.

    I personally love 'The Yawning Game'. It's my secret weapon if they aren't looking sleepy enough at bed time.

    Who sank the boat. I've read it so many times that if I'm away for a night I can 'read' it to ds2 over the phone

    Both boys like possum magic.

    Pretty much anything by Mem Fox or Pamela Allen.

    Books that had rhymes tended to be popular with DD at that age. Some of the Pamela Allen books, Dr Seuss etc. Mr Men and Grug were also popular at about age 4.

    Usually books that weren't too long with not too much writing on each page, but with lots of pictures, seemed to win her over.

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar always does well... she likes it even now, and she's nearly 8 and spends a lot of time reading Roald Dahl books on her own... she still loves that damn caterpillar. lol.

    Maisy books are popular here.

    I HIGHLY recommend "edwina the emu". It's great and has a great metre and rhyme to it.
