I tried awww books but some are a bit slushy!!! What do your children like to have read to them?

Little Red train(Ben Blathwaite) Mr Magnolia, any Mrs Armitage books(Quentin Blake), Percy the Parkkeeper (might be a bit long for a toddler), any Donaldson/Scheffler ones..... Umm. Loads more than this actually, but these just pop to mind

Six Dinner Sid (there's at least one sequel too). Funny, non-slushy book about a cat with fantastic illustrations. Have a particular soft spot for it because it was the first book my DD read on her own.

We are all loving "That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown" at the moment - It is fun and a joy to read for the parents too - Fresh and novel with great illustrations.
