YOUR Top Children's books- and our competition winner

Last week, we published a list of our favourite children's books as well as a competition where we asked you to tell us your favourite children's book, with a chance to win a £20 book voucher.  We run-down your recommendations, and announce our lucky winner. 

Thank you so much for all your responses. We think a good book recommendation is invaluable, so here is a round up (in no particular order!) of what our lovely followers recommend:


1. Julia Donaldson Books, and in particular, The Gruffalo, are a popular favourite. How many of you know all the words?!


2. Can't You Sleep Little Bear by Martin Waddell. [recommended by YogaBugs, North & East London]




3. This Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown by Cressida Cowell. "... is a must for any child with a special cuddly. My daughter loves this story in which Emily must teach the Queen about how taking your toy on adventures makes them special".[recommendedHilary Fine]




4. Mr Stink by David Walliams

The second hilarious children's story by David Walliams, telling the story of when Chloe befriends a local tramp and hides him in the garden shed.


5. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Bloom (recommended by @ZoeBermant)


In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room--to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one--he says goodnight. A gentle night-time lullaby story to soothe your little-ones to sleep!


6. Peepo by J&A Ahlberg (recommended by @KateLld).


Based on the classic game of Peepo, this book cleverly allows the reader to see what a baby would see at different times of the day.

7. Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown (recommended by @SoupDragon)



8. We're Going on a Bear Hunt-Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury (recommended by@MumsUnited)


Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. And then rapidly retrace their steps when they find one!

9. Where the Wild Things Are  by Maurice Sendak (recommended by @jemimaBradley)


The classic tale based on the fantasy (and real) consequences of a little boy's mischief.

10. The Tale of Mucky Mabel, by Jeanne Willis.



Our winner is Jemima Bradley - please email us at info@northlondonmums.com so that we can arrange to send you the vouchers. Look out for our next competition!
