    Default Best kids books

    Got to go to a baptism tomorrow, it's an old friend, but I'm not close with her kids so don't want to buy anything too personal. I'm leaning towards a book. I need to buy for a 1 and a 3 yo. So what the best books your kids have or that you have given?

    Thanks!

    My now 21 month old has always loved the "that's not my..." Series. There's heaps of them and they've been his favourite since about 1. Not sure on the 3 yo

    I second the "That's not my series" my daughter is nearly 3 and still likes to look at these, we also really like the book Good Night, Sleep Tight by Mem Fox

    Dear Zoo is a hit with Dd and the 18 month old we had visiting the other week.

    funnily enough I'm actually off to a baptism tomorrow too and I'm also taking a book as a gift. I went with a board book version of the rainbow fish.

    Each peach pear plum for the three year old and the very hungry caterpillar for the 1 year old. Both are classics.

    Peepo by the same authors as each peach pear plum is also great.

    For christenings/ baptisms I give Dr Seuss' Oh The Places you'll go.
    I'm not religious so I find it is a good inspirational alternative to the religious pressies.
