The very best kids books

very best kids books

For the final day of this month book series I looked through all posts and picked the books that got most entries! Like the best of the best…
You probably have at least one of those in your house :)

I hope you enjoyed this series, I definitely put some books on my list and a big thank you to everyone who participated and everyone who came over to discover new and old favourites!

1. The Very Hungry Caterpillar
THE all-time classic picture book, from generation to generation, sold somewhere in the world every 30 seconds! Have you shared it with a child or grandchild in your life?

2. I Want My Hat Back
A New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book of 2011!
A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.

3.  An awesome book
Based on the simple concept of dreaming big, An Awesome Book! is the inspiring debut work of Los Angeles writer/artist Dallas Clayton. Written in the vein of classic imaginative tales, it is a sure hit for all generations, young and old.

4. Oliver Jeffers
Jeffers’s picture books are wonderfully accessible. They explore themes of friendship, loneliness, independence and imagination. He has written and illustrated, or “made”, as he prefers to put it, five hugely successful picture books. The first three – the “boy books” – feature a small boy who sets off on a series of daunting quests. How to Catch a Star (2004), the first of them, was inspired by a Brer Rabbit story he read as a child. In Lost and Found (2005) the boy heroically rows to the south pole for the sake of an unhappy penguin, and in The Way Back Home (2007) he rescues a young Martian whose spaceship has crashed on the moon.

5. Dr. Seuss
“A person’s a person, no matter how small,” Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. “Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted.”

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of kids learn to read.
