My favourite childhood books

By 3/05/2015


I have so many memories from childhood, and many of them I had my nose stuck in a book.

The 'Mr Men' books were a firm bedtime favourite.

As I am quickly moving towards parenthood, I've done a lot of thinking about how I'd like baby-girl to be brought up; and I don't want her raised by the TV! I'd much rather she learns to play outside and explore and read books than to demand her favourite TV shows 24 hours a day.

So, in honor of world book day, here is a short list of some of the books I remember reading as a child, and that I'd like to share with her one day.


1. Each Peach Pear Plum; Jane & Allan Ahlberg

2. The Very Hungry Caterpillar; Eric Carle

3. The Mr Men & Little Miss books; Roger Hargreaves

4. Meg & Mog; Helen Nicoll & Jan Pienkowski

5. We're going on a Bear Hunt; Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury

Thanks for reading this small post; what were some of your favourite books growing up?
