Children’s book week

Children’s book week is of course upon us and Book Trust are running a cool poll whereby you can vote for your favorite children’s books out of a list of 100. I’ve cast my vote and have a few memories of my own from those on the list and from some that aren’t. See the full list here – http://www.booktrust.org.uk/news-and-blogs/news/222/

Even I am now an adult, I love love this little book and the other ones in the series. I don't think there is an age limit for books - a good book is a good book through out your life!

I have kept all of these favourites of mine and regularly buy new ones despite not having any kids to read them to. Well, children’s books are timeless and ageless aren’t they. For big and small kids alike. I’d love to know your favourite books from your childhood or indeed those you love now. Please leave a message below
