Favourites are gingerbread man, three little pigs, three bears. We've also got gruffalo.

Any suggestions? I'm particularly looking for modern ones that I might not find otherwise.

How about Each Peach Pear Plum - an oldie but a goodie!

Toddle Waddle - my 2.4 year old can recite the whole thing. It has a lovely rhythm. He also likes one called Busy Day.

Goodnight Moon was a favourite here when ds was that age. And Charlie Cook's favourite book.

The Fox in the Dark by Allison Green is wonderful.

My dd loves Room on the Broom by the same people as the Gruffalo. It rhymes and has repetition. I can now read it with my eyes closed

Duck in the Truck by Jez Alborough (I still remember dd shouting STILL STUCK at the end of every page and she is nearly 11 grin )

What the Ladybird Heard - by Julia Donaldson and pics by Lydia Monk - fab!

A squash and a squeeze by Julia Donaldson.

Julia Donaldson's What the Ladybird Heard. Brilliant.

AvonCallingBarksdale Fri 01-Mar-13 18:38:39

All the Julia Donaldson ones - Monkey Puzzle, Smartest Giant In Town, I particularly like. Fix It Duck, Shark In The Park.

Mr Magnolia

I think I have read that to dd every night for the last 2 months!<twitch>

Again by Emily Gravett is one of my DD's (just 3) favourites and has repetitive lines. DD knows it so well now, she "reads" the agains smile

Anything by Julia Donaldson would work. Gruffalo, Gruffalo's Child, Room on the Broom, Squash and a Squeeze and What the Ladybird Heard are all big hits here.

Goldilocks and just the one Bear is a good one too if she already likes the original.

Oh and "Where's Fred" - DD loves that story!

Definitely Duck in a Truck! My son loves shouting out the lines too!

"oh no" says daddy bear (we changed this from Mr Bear) "i can't stand this"!
