Our Book Wishlist

I always seem to be looking at childrens books while we are out and about or online so I thought I would share a short wishlist of books we would love to own. Some of the following books we have borrowed from the Library in the past others have come from blog recommendations and storytime.

In no particular order

1 . Giraffes Cant Dance by Giles Andrae
So far we have borrowed this book from the library twice and after reading it 30+ times it still holds its charm and captivates the attention of my children.

2 .The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson
I have not had the opportunity to read this book to the kids as yet but is definitely a must buy on our list the kids have seen the animated version of the story and loved it from beginning to end.

3 .And the Train Goes by William Bee
This is a rather recent addition to our wishlist after seeing it read on Playschool. This books spotlights the many nosies heard on a train and is accompanied by wonderful bright illustrations.

4 .Dairy of a Wombat by Jackie French
This is another book I have not yet read but i have seen it recommend so many times it has made our wishlist

6 .Piglet and Granny by Margaret Wild
We have borrowed this book from the library in the past Neevah thoroughly enjoyed it and memorised her favourite parts so she could read along with me. She quite likes all the books in this series but Piglet and Granny is definitely her favourite and she has asked on many occasions to borrow it again.

7 .The Very Cranky Bear
by Nick Bland
We have this book out currently from the library and I just love reading it and it has been read every night for a good 2 weeks. This book has great rhyming text, humor and a lovely message of a plain and thoughtful sheep but most of all Neevah loves to join in when the bear roars.

8 .I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt
To be honest the title drew me to this book and when I read the review on No Time for Flashcards it just sealed the deal and I added it to our wishlist. Review can be found here.

9 .The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle
I picked this book up while out the other day to flick through it as soon as I opened it I knew Liam would love this book with all the animals, simple repeative text and great illustrations.

10 .
Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Animals by Ed Emberley
This is one book in a series of how to draw books by Ed Emberley that I would love to get the kids and put away for when they are a bit older. I have read a few reviews now of how fantastic these books are for learning to draw for Adults and Children alike so it is defiantly one I would like to have on our bookshelf.

What is your favourite childrens book? maybe we will need to add it to our ever growing list :)

Our favourite book is "The Tiger Who Came to Tea" by Judith Kerr. All Judith's "Mog" books are a must-have too!
