Want to get some books for your child, but don’t know where to start? We have collated a list of our contributors’ Top 10 favourite books for their children at that early age when they’re just becoming little bookworms. Go through our checklist to be sure that you have everything you need to kick-start your baby’s library.
  1. GOODNIGHT MOON by Margaret Wise Brown – one of the all-time bedtime classics, this helps your child to wind down and understand the concept of saying goodnight!

  2. PEEPO! by Allan Ahlberg and Janet Ahlberg – fun and engaging with an element of surprise, the repetition allows your child to pre-empt what’s going to happen and join in the fun.

  3. THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR by Eric Carle – an iconic book that comes in both hard and soft back. Let your child go on the journey from caterpillar to butterfly, and get to know a few names of food and fruit along the way.

  4. BEAUTIFUL OOPS by Barney Saltzberg – a heart-warming, interactive and well-designed book that explains there is beauty in everything – even mistakes.

  5. HANDA’S SURPRISE by Eileen Brown– a short but lovely read that teaches children about animals, fruit and all-important counting.

  6. CUDDLY DUDLEY by Jez Alborough – a charming tale of a penguin whose siblings just want to hug him. As much as he tries to resist, he can’t help but give in to their affections.

  7. DEAR ZOO by Rod Campbell – a simple but brilliant lift-the-flap book about asking the zoo for a new pet, with a few surprises along the way. A good book to start to learn about and introduce animals.

  8. THAT’S NOT MY CAR by Fiona Watt – a perfect early-stages board book that has sensory patches with different textures for your child to feel and explore. Existing in this book with a car as the subject, there are also variations that include trucks, planes, unicorns and dragons.

  9. PEEK-A-WHO by Nina Laden – fun and enchanting to read with rhyming text that has an interactive mirror at the end. It’s also small enough to carry around, for moments when your baby needs some entertaining, and pronto.

  10. TEN LITTLE FINGERS AND TEN LITTLE TOES BY Mem Fox and Helen Oxenbury – a lovely story about babies from all around the world – each in different scenarios, but still each with ten fingers and toes. A lovely story about diversity and inclusivity.
