Fox's Socks
Author: Julia Donaldson
Fox's Socks is a firm favourite in our house. Simple illustrations and a story that all parents and children can relate to; the seemingly never ending search for missing socks! My daughters love looking under the flaps, but unfortunately our copy now has very few flaps left. It has been very well read!

Room on the Broom
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
I've read this book to my daughters so many times I can recite it by heart. My two eldest daughters always ask for this as a bedtime story. An exciting story full of magic and generosity. We love everything about this book; beautiful illustrations, rhyming text and fantastic characters.

Buster's Birthday
Author: Rod Campbell
My 2 1/2 year old daughter really enjoys lifting the flaps on this book to find out what each of the presents are. Reading this book is a good way to explain the concept of giving presents, which is often difficult for young children to understand. My daughter loves reaching the final page and opening the little surprise present. Simple illustrations accompany this simple story.

Charlie Cook's Favourite Book
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
My 2 1/2 year old daughter enjoys this story and I think she will appreciate it even more when she's slightly older. The story works its way through pages from the favourite books of the characters it encounters. Each page is illustrated as though it is from a different book, including fiction, encyclopedia, nature guide, joke book and more. The text rhymes beautifully and is a pleasure to read, like all Julia Donaldson books.

Stick Man
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
One of our favourite books by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. The story follows the adventures of Stick Man as he tries to make his way home to his family. We read this story all year round, but it does feature a certain jolly man in a big red suit, so is ideal around Christmastime. The illustrations are beautiful and keep my 2 1/2 year old captivated throughout. I thoroughly enjoy reading this book to my daughters. It is well written, rhythmic, rhyming and the perfect length for a 2 year olds attention span.
