My cat likes to hide in boxes (very repetitive)
Once upon a time (lots of story book characters)
Monkey Puzzle
Flappy Wiggly Waggly (or something like that!)
What shall we do with the boo hoo baby
Dear Zoo (lovely lift the flap book)
Second vote for the Rainbow fish - it's beautiful!
Anything by Julia Donaldson is good
Don't put mustard in the custard (poems by Michael Rosen)
Whizz Bang Orangutan - another great poetry book with lots of short poems for younger children

Whatever next Jill Murphy and anything else by her
Anything by Mike Inkpen
Also check out Tony Ross (some of his books are for older children tho), alan and janet ahlberg and Nick Butterworth

Mr Archemides bath is great too

Best thing I find is to go to the library tho and then you can buy books that she really likes Saves a packet. Charity shops are great for books too.
