10 Must Have Books For Kids.

Books are one of our most favourite thing, we have hundreds of books, they fill every spare space, from the storage pouffe in the lounge, to the book shelves and boxes in the bedrooms. There are books in the car, books in back packs...literally books everywhere! The Works is a great place to buy crafty bits, stationery supplies and, of course, books! I thought I would share 10 of our favourite books that I think are must haves for a children's book shelf! (All of the following books are available at The Works and all other good book stores)

1. The Gruffalo

Searching for nuts, Mouse meets the Fox, the Owl and the Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from these hungry woodland creatures?

2. We're Going On A Bear Hunt.

Four children head out on an adventure, singing a silly song about hunting a bear! Will they find the bear? 

3. The Tiger Who Came To Tea

This book tells the story of a girl called Sophie, her mother, and a tiger who interrupts their afternoon tea.

4. You Choose

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Seaside, forest, volcano, city, desert or outer space? Who would you have for a friend? A pirate, an alien, a fairy?

5. Mr Men and Little Miss book collection

Mr. Men is a series of 49 children's books by British author Roger Hargreaves. In 1981, an accompanying series of 42 Little Miss books by the same author were added.

6. Dear Zoo

A letter to the zoo asking for a pet results in a succession being dispatched - all of the deliveries containing highly unsuitable pets! All except the last one! 

7. Dogger

Dogger is the endearing story of how Dave's beloved Dogger was lost and found.

9. The Very Hungry Caterpillar

 It features a caterpillar who eats its way through a wide variety of foodstuffs before pupating and emerging as a butterfly.

10. Harry The Dirty Dog

The family dog, Harry, buries the bathtub scrubber and runs away from home. Harry gets dirty and returns home only to find his family does not recognize him. His attempts to get his family to realize it's him only succeed when he brings back the brush he buried.

  1. Ahh! Some of these are real classics.
    I remember The Very Hungry Caterpillar from when I was a child and both of my girls loved it. They also adored We're Going On A Bear Hunt x
