Yes, we also love the books you’ve mentioned.
Green Eggs and Ham By Dr. Seuss is our current favourite, we hardly need the book anymore as we know the all words. We have fun changing the words from "I am Sam" to "I am Dan" (my sons name). He has got really good at rhyming since we started reading the Dr. Suess books which is a bonus.
He also loves Baby Brains & he thinks its so funny that a baby can do grown up jobs.
My daughter enjoys everything we read, she is not old enough to pick her favourites but im sure it wont be long. She loves animal books as she can make the animal sound, especially Lion & tiger noises, i think thats something got to do with having an older brother 😆
I love reading all the kids books myself.March 1, 2012 at 4:37 pm #120753KateMember
I love Dear Zoo too, my kids are sick of it though!!
As a child my favourite book was Alice in Wonderland (the Disney version). Still brings back lovely memories of my grandad reading it to me in the garden.
Books are amazing. Last great one I read was The Forever War by Joe Haldeman.March 1, 2012 at 4:44 pm #120754scole1Member

Don’t forget that World Book Night for adults will be happening very soon!
Also wanted to point out that the tokens that children receive in school are not provided by schools or dept of education but by bookshops and publishers.
