My Top 10 Books To Read With Children

Reading books with children is one of the best things you can do for your child. This can assist in fostering strong relationships, developing a love of stories, promoting receptive and expressive language as well as sparking imagination and creativity. When reading stories with children, I love books that are fun to read. I want children to see that books are funny and exciting so I like to choose books that support that.

Here is a list of children’s books I love to read as a Mum and as a teacher:

1 – Oh The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss

2 – The Very Noisy Bear by Nick Bland

3 – The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

4 – Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

5 – The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson

6 – Do Not Open This Book by Andy Lee

7 – Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae

8 – The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

9 – Our Home, Our Heartbeat by Briggs

10 – There’s a Hippo on Our Roof Eating Cake by Hazel Edwards
