Favourite Picture Books

Children love and benefit so much from experiencing stories at a young age, it develops their language, speech, listening skills and most importantly knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

There is no end to the wonderful selection of children's books available in libraries, online and at local bookshops. These are just a few of the most popular children's books. The  Harper Collins Treasury of Picture Book Classics: A Child's First Collection is an ideal starting point and way to inspire a love of stories and reading from an early age.
