My DS is 3.4 and he likes books like The tiger who came to tea - I am looking for books of a similar length/style that I can read to him.

Thanks for any help smile

All the Julia Donaldson ones.

My dd liked the Charlie & lola ones at that age (still does sometimes).

Little Red Train is a big hit here.

Thanks, will look for them. Haven't read any of them before as he has only just become willing to listen to a story!! As soon as he could move, he went away when I tried to read stories, but suddenly, he's changed his mind!

Stories from programmes he liked to watch perhaps like Bob the Builder or Fireman Sam or Postman Pat or whatever they watch these days?

Apart from those DS2 (who is nearly 6 now) liked:-

The Smartest Giant in Town
The Snail and the Whale
We're going on a Bear Hunt
Winnie the Witch series
All the Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs books
The Kiss that Missed and other ones in the series by David Melling.
The Elmer series

Cockatoos is fun :-)

And what about The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Classic.

The Little Red Train books are just fantastic. A real pleasure for parents too. The illustrations provide lots of excuses for snuggling up ... smile

And the David Melling ones are really fab too.

My DS absolutely loved the Blue Kangaroo books, and anything else by Emma Chichester Clark, at that age, and it was good to get him to see that books can be about girls too.

He might also like the Jez Alborough books if he's just getting in to stories. I loved Duck in a Truck plus all his others (and dd did too )
