Feature and Follow Friday: Favourite childhood picture books



Feature and Follow is a meme hosted by Parajunkie and Alison Can Read - Go have a look at their blogs! Each week there is a new bookish questions to answer. This week's question is:

What were some of your favourite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favourites to read to them?

I can tell this is going to lead to some very cute answers :) Some of my favourite picture books as a kid were actually poetry books, but here are a few of my fave stories:

Percy the Park Keeper. If you didn't have the Nick Butterworth audio book to accompany it, I pity you ;)


The Jolly Pocket Postman. Because you got to use a magnifying glass across the images to find secret messages!


What were your favourite picture books? Have you read any of the the above?

  3. My favorite was this battered and bruised gigantic red book called "The Omnibus of Fairy Tales" that was my mom's growing up, so who knows when it was published. The illustrations were gorgeous and it contained many of my cherished stories. I was also very partial to the Little Golden Book "The Color Kittens" which I now read to my daughter.

  11. I haven't heard of these before. Sound interesting though. I really liked the Berenstain Bears myself when I was little.

  12. Fab choices! I am a Primary School Teacher so have so many picture books I love! I adore anything by Anthony Browne and Colin Thompson. My favourite book from childhood was The Tiger Who Came to Tea:)

  13. The audio book was the best part, I listened to it all the time! (Probably because my dad got fed up of reading the same story over and over to me!)

  14. Ahh The Tiger Who Came To Tea is such a classic! I feel a bit out of touch with kids books these days. I might make a little trip to the kids section in Waterstones and check it out!
