I'd undoubtedly recommend My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards. We're reading it at the moment and Threeva loves it!

Hoping we have more books to read when we win ;-)

The Adventures of a Nose (Viviane Schwarz and Joel Stewart)is one of the cleverest and most imaginative children's book I've come across. A nose travels the world in search of his role - and finds a place where he can fit in by sticking out.

Emma @ Mummy Musings

At the moment our favourite is the classic Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Jodi

Just read "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" with one of the kids I tutor. Great book for older kids and an interesting perspective on WWII.

Kelly

Recently re-read "Pardon Me, You're Stepping on My Eyeball" by Paul Zindel, and loved it as much as when I was a teen.

Jen

For us it is Michael Rosens Sad Book. A real help during this hard time for both me and the boys

Di

I don't think you can beat 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', it's simply magical!

I would SO recommend 'Peepo!' by Janet and Alan Ahlberg. The illustrations are classic Britain and the story is poetic and simple, outlining a toddler's day with the line 'here's a little baby, one two three..'. DD wants it read to her when she wakes up, and before nap time and bed time. It's totally integrated into our routine!

We love Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear. As soon as the first line is spoken allowed my 6.5 month old twins are entranced. So well read is this book in our house that I can now recite it from memory at any given opportunity. Perfect for nappy changes, car journeys and calming tantrums. We are all bookwprms in this house and would love to win this giveaway.

Catherine Miller

I will always love Esio Trot by Roald Dahl!

ashleigh

Has to be the Gruffulo, it is so well written, we love it!

Mummiafelice

wow what great books!
At the moment we are a fan of 'Where the wild things are'.

Avril

Great to hear about a good mix of new books available for whole familes to share out - would love to take a closer, hands on look!

Managed to recently lure my daughter, aged 9, away from her beloved Enid Blyton. She's been studying myths and legends at school so when we came across 'Arthur High King of Britain' by Michael Morpurgo in a local Waterstones store it was a perfect opportunity to coax her into trying something different. She loved it and commented on how well written it was and, although it had several words which were new to her, she found it easy to read. In the book, King Arthur tells a series of stories about himself, Guinevere and the Knights of the round table to a boy that he rescues from drowning in the present day Scilly Isles.

Margaret

"The Tiger who came to Tea" - I love reading it as much as my little ones love listening to it. I can never read it just once - they beg for "once more" !!

Kathryn MacKinnon

I'd recommend Mog The Forgetful Cat. It's gorgeously illustrated, simply written and very cery funny!

Rebecca Colby

'Across the Universe' by Beth Revis. It's a YA dystopian novel and opens with the main character (and her parents), being cryogenically frozen so that they may be reawakened 300 years later on another planet. Gripping from the word go!

Jane morfett

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is always great for very young children!

sarah allcoat

Farmer Duck or Pumkin Soup are both picture books that I would highly recommend. For older teenagers I would highly recommend Markus Zusak's The Book Theif ( adults should read this too, I did!!)xx
