    Default Favourite children's books

    Each year for Christmas and birthdays I buy my kids a book (amongst other things). I need some suggestions of titles so would love to hear what yours and/or your children's favourite boom is.

    In particular I'm stuck on one for Miss almost 5. We have a pretty big collection already so I need some new ideas.

    The velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
    In my heart: a book of feelings by Jo Witek

    If you have a big collection already you probably have these. But my 5 year old absolutely loves Snugglepot & Cuddlepie (May Gibbs), we have read the collection of stories through at least 4 times now. Also, the Winnie the Pooh books by A.A. Milne are popular around here.
