Favourite Top 20 Children’s Picture Books

Children love stories. I LOVE STORIES!! 😀 As you can tell…. There are so many stories and tales that stick with you, even if it was the first book you ever read, can yo remember your favourite book as a child? I had several.

Any story you pick, either if you tell it totally from your memory or read it aloud from a book, no child refuses to listen. Children’s story books with colourful illustration’s have an edge over all other stories.

Get a few stories with brightly coloured pictures and involve the children in a healthy and useful pass time. Here are my top 20 children’s favourite picture books with lovely stories worth keeping at home:
