Where’s Spot by Eric Hill. A lovely introduction to a lift the flap book. Spot is a loveable dog and this is a nice tale of hide and seek.

Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell. This has been a firm favorite in our household for many years. The introduction to each animal is very clever and three of my children have learnt animal sounds from this very story. It is simple but a classic that you are happy to read over and over again.



The Jolly Postman or Other People’s Letters by Janet & Allan Ahlberg. The postman is on a journey to deliver everyone’s letters. They are hidden within the book and it is very exciting as you get to read letters, puzzles, and notes that are part of the story and attached to the book.



The Tiger That Came To Tea by Judith Kerr. A friendly Tiger that comes to tea. Surely every child’s wish? it is lovely as the story doesn’t end as you would expect it to.


We’re Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury. This story is great. Full of adventure and fun, it inspires you to go on a bear hunt of your own.



Oh Dear by Rod Campbell. Another great book by Rod Campbell. Bold in colour and the flaps are an extra exciting part to the story.
