Little tykes favourite books


The little tyke just loves his books! In fact, from a very early age I have tried to get him used to books by reading him bedtime stories. Of course the words do not mean much to him yet, but he loves the pictures and any flaps or interactive features. Its a lovely thing to do together and he loves to turn the pages of the book at the request of Mummy.

We have built up quite a collection now and they take pride of place on the bookshelf in his room. We purchased this bookshelf from Tidy Books.

As you can see, he has plenty to choose from but there are a few old favourites that he keeps returning to, here are his top five books –

Postman Bear by Julia Donaldson. Its a simple little story book for young children, with flaps to explore, making the experience all the more interactive and keeps them involved. It was in a deal at Tesco and its the best book that I have bought!

1. Postman Bear by Julia Donaldson

2. The Tickle Book by Ian Whybrow. This is a really fun little book that really gets the little tyke excited and giggly. Featuring the Ticklemonster who hides behind random flaps throughout the book. Perhaps not the best thing to read little ones at bedtime as it can get them very excited!

3. Wheels on the Bus Sound Book. Quite simply his favourite, favourite song. He loves to copy the actions to the song. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love ‘Wheels on the Bus?

4. Bedtime for Peppa. Some people find Peppa Pig really annoying, but the little tyke and myself are big fans. He loves George the best of course. Dinosaur! Roar! Its actually a really nice, laid back book for a last bedtime story.

5. The Very Hungry Caterpiller by Eric Carle. An absolute timeless classic. It’s bright, colourful and heaps of fun for young children.

Have your little ones got any favourite books that you could recommend? We are always on the lookout for new ones to add to the collection and Christmas is just around the corner!

I have an absolutely stinking cold at the moment, so I think I will put my feet up and sniffle some more.

Ta ta for now my lovelies xx

  1. I’m so glad to have found another mummy who loves reading to their littles as much as I do!
    Charlie loves “We’re going on a Bear Hunt” too and hes now able to recite it from memory so he should be able to read it to his baby sister when she arrives x


      1. Aww thankyou!
        I definitely think that books really do help children progress and learn that tiny bit more. Makes me sad when I hear some mums on the school run saying that they don’t read to their child as they find it boring or can’t be bothered xx
