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.

Charlie cook's favourite book

In fact, anything by julia Donaldson, there are zillions, loads mentioned above. Romm on the broom was the outstanding favourite here by miles and miles.

Commotion in the ocean.

Farmyard Hullaballoo

Rumble in the jungle

Any of the duck books

Mine, at 13, 11 and 9, can still recite pretty much the entire books mentioned because they were read them so much at 2.

Have just ordered room on the broom and duck in the truck. I think I'll look into Hairy McLairy next month (or at the library).

Thank you all very much!!!!

OP I have a couple of extra copies of books that we've loved (peace at last, hungry caterpillar, duck in the truck, maybe the gruffalo? I am happy to send them to you if you would like them. Brand new - think I got them as duplicate presents or maybe book start. . PM me.

Definitely the Emily Gravett and Eric Carle books (and try Baby Bear, Baby Bear What Do You See? by EC too).

Also, Peepo (J & A Ahlberg), The Tiger Who Came To Tea (J.Kerr), and The Pig in the Pond (M.Waddell) are good for rhymes/repetition.
