Stuck - Oliver Jeffers
Tom and the Tin Full of Trouble - Nick Sharratt

Are 4'yo DS's current favourites.

oh brilliant a great range of suggestions, thank you, I had no idea what a 4 year old would like (my son is only 2) and didn't want to pitch it totally wrong!

- Winnie the Witch for fiction
- any of the Usborne "flap" books for non-fiction. DD1 (just 4) loves the science one, the space one and the dinosaur one
- a first Atlas

DS is 4. Current favourites are anything by Julia Donaldson (although V popular so he might already have these), the Hairy Maclary books, The Dog Who Could Dig, and The Ravenous Beast (which he loves to "read" along to and we have turned into a game for when we have to wait anywhere)

My DS loved the Oliver Jeffers books when he was 4, About a boy, Lost & Found, How to Catch a Star, The Great Paper Caper are the ones I can remember off hand

You could try Again by Emily Gravett? It's about a young dragon who wants extra stories at bedtime and gets a little stroppy when his mother falls asleep on the umpteenth repetition...grin

The Great Sheep Shenanigans (Peter Bently) is another good one. The same author also wrote something called The Great Dog Bottom Swap which we don't have, but a number of people on here have recommended.

My nephew turns four next week and I was hoping to get him a book as part of his present, but as DS is younger than him I'm not quite sure what kind of books a four year old might enjoy. Would welcome any suggestions !
