I would like to find a blog which talks about childrens books, old favourites and new ones.

Does anyone know of a good one?

I quite like Vintage Kids' Books My Kid Loves. It's American, but British books are often featured. As should be apparent from the title this fits your "old favourites" requirements best.

I come across some great children's book blogs when googling for books, but then I forget to bookmark them. I've just been browsing to see if I can find them, and came across Educating Alice, which looks good. Lovely post (October 22) on the 50th anniversary of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.
