Well me as a mum think that patience is the important. So be patient to your children. I have 2 children and they drive me crazy. But no matter what I am patient. I'm also pregnant so wish me luck with 3 children all together.

The very hungry caterpillar by Eric Carle


Peppa pig the big day out at potato city! My daughters are 22 months n 8 months
They both love me reading that book. Whenever i say its time for quiet
time 22month old always gets that book!

Kristie Scarle

Barry the Fish with Fingers - mainly because Barry is Grandad's name

Lucy Tyler

Peppa Pig, George's First Day at Playgroup - I think the whole family probably knows it off by heart now, even the dog!!!

Vicki Macdonald

my grandaughter loves the hungry caterpiller, its looking a little bit worn now though lol

Sam Brett

Dear Santa by Rod Campbell - yes, I know its not anywhere near Christmas - but the girls still love it and want to read it every night!

L Bond

Anything by Julia Donaldson - especially 'The Snail and the Whale' which always brings a lump to my throat!

louise anderson

The tiger who came to tea

Suzie Williams

In our house it's "The Tiger who came to Tea" by Judith Kerr. Our twins take it in turns to finish the sentences and turn the pages!


Maisy books, you can do a few in each sitting! Followed by any nursery rhyme book seems to be our bedtime routine at present


Stop Monkeying Around!

James Scarr

Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy by Lynley Dodd. Both our boys absolutely love the rhyming and repetition of these books not to mention the various dogs and the tales they get up to.

Michelle K


Wonderful :) at 18 months I leave the last words off of each sentence and our little girl finishes them for us! Even the words anti-gravity boots! Absolutely wonderful to see our bookworm tracing the words like mummy and daddy as she pretends to read to herself

Nathan Bean

Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Lucia has several versions, including one with "stick-on porridge".


Otto The Book Bear is the favourite at the moment.

Sonia G

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Catherine Killen

Calm down Borris is the daytime favourite in my household- my five year old still loves to be chased by Borris' tickly kisses and my 21 month old daughter adores him! For bedtime my son insists on a non fiction book so we cuddle up with our copy of 'My First Questions and Answers Book' and my daughter enjoys all of the Night Garden books.

Kerry Newton

We do have a selection of books and our little lady gets to pick 3 every night! Come on daisy by Jane Simmons has been loved by all three of our kids and is nearly falling to bits.

Agnieszka Higney

The Gruffalo!

Emma Holbrook

The troll by Julia Donaldson. Every night it's the same, it's usually mummy asking if we can change and I get a flat no

caroline martin

Snuggle Bunny (puppet book) by Jon Lambert. My 2 year old has always loved interacting with the Bunny and recently surprised us by reciting the words from the book, clearly all that repetition has payed off!

Andrew Parkyn

Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo has been read countless times in our house and my son can now repeat most of the story complete with actions. But it is still an excellent book.


The Bedtime Bear - A pop-up book for bedtime, by Ian Whybrow and Axel Scheffler. I must admit our 2 year old does most of the 'reading' on this one though, but she loves it!

Eileen Teo

peppa pig at the fun fair. they like the helter skelter
