Hairy McLairy etc etc - done
Very hungry caterpillar - done
Peepo - done
He has others too, but the above are the ones I might 'expect' to be recommended iykwim

He loves books and I read him 2 or 3 at bedtime. SOOO many childrens books to choose from...

So what books are a big hit with you and yours?

The night pirates
Cockatoos by Quentin Blake
Each Peach Pair Plum (same people as Peepo)
Room on a Broom (obviously )
Don't put your finger in the jelly nelly (think this is by Nick Sharrat)
Fairy Stories: goldilocks, three little pigs and jack in the beanstalk
