I want a new story book for my DD, something easy to follow & will keep her attention throughout but nothing that is over with too quickly. Thanks

'i know a rhino' Charles fuge and 'A little bit lost' by Chris Haughton were favourite s with mine. I'm presuming you already have 'dear zoo'!

Tinks15 Sun 14-May-17 11:53:34

Thanks Tay will look at those. Oh yes we have dear zoo but she's thoroughly bored of that one now & won't even entertain it.

do u have a library near by?
Register there and you can get up to 10 books or so at a time. No need to get bored and might find a fave

We can get up to 30 books at our library and there are things to entertain toddlers and no requirement to be quiet. Definitely worth investigating your local one

Any of the Hairy Maclairy books are great - my 23mo DS loves them and tries to join in with the rhymes.

What the ladybird heard. My dd loves doing to animal noises. Giraffes can't dance. The fish who could wish. Supertato. Aliens love underpants. Any of the 'Little Princess' books.

My 21 month old used to love 'stickman' by Julia Donaldson but gone off it a bit now. 'Each peach pear plum' was also a hit for a while. His favourite presently is a story about different types of building vehicles (diggers etc) but I can't remember what it's called.

At that age DD loved Baby's Catalogue; anything by Julia Donaldson. I like Meg and Mog. Also Mog and the Baby.

My 23 month old loves all the 'Pip and Posy' books now. There is quite a few different ones and they're not too short or long.

Eveninties Sun 14-May-17 21:19:07

Anything by Julia Donaldson or Eric carle

IamChipmunk Sun 14-May-17 21:31:51

Hairy maclairy definitely! Ds still loves them at almost three.

He also liked the tales of acorn wood, lift the flap books.

ColdAsIceCubes Sun 14-May-17 21:32:31

No-Bot the robot with no bottom by Sue Hendra, or Norman the slug with the silly shell also by Sue Hendra. My little ones loved these.

Oi Frog by Kes Gray (and the sequel, Oi Dog)
Baby's Catalogue by Janet and Alan Ahlberg
Oh No, George! by Chris Haughton
Please Mr Panda by Steve Anthony
Any of the Max books by Ed Vere

All of these were a hit with 21mo DD.

My gd had the whole Maisy set from Book people at that age and loved every one. She never got tired of hearing them. They come in a little bag.

Tinks15 Sun 14-May-17 21:45:40

Wow thanks everyone, loads of suggestions smile. Yes we are a big fan of Julia Donaldson books & have a fair few already. I will look at the other suggestions, I think she would def like Pip & Posy. Will be looking into joining a library too I think.
