Either in school or at home with your parents, you are taught to read from a very young age. There are some books from our childhoods that have stayed with us throughout our adult lives. Find out our favourite five books below.
Now, this was a strong favourite of ours growing up. Little Rabbit Foo Foo is the tale of a hilarious biker bunny who is wild and wicked. He likes nothing better than riding through the forest and bopping everyone on the head. From worms to tigers, no one is safe. But the Good Fairy comes along and warns Little Rabbit Foo Foo that she is not impressed.
This was a go-to book as a child; the rhymes combined with the amazing illustrations had us laughing out loud and we are certain it will have your young ones giggling too.
A modern classic in children’s literature. This is the story of Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare who are trying to express how much they love each other. This story has captivated adults and children alike.
This was a perfect bedtime story for us here at World of Books and it’s an excellent story to read as your children wind down.
A clear winner of children’s fiction in the late 90s and early 00s, and continues to be one of our bestsellers! Lots of us grew up with The Harry Potter Series and joined Harry from his very first journey to Hogwarts up to his final battle with Lord Voldemort. The books gave many children an escape from the real world to find a home in Hogwarts and J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world.
These books have now inspired many generations and will continue to spread magic around the world.
These books were the next go-to series after Harry Potter, or at the same time, for the kids who read a lot like us!
A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the unpleasant adventures of the Baudelaire orphans. As children, we went along with Violet, Klaus, and Sunny as they dealt with their exceptional bad luck. We learnt lots of new words along the way and how grown-up doesn’t mean clever, and young doesn’t mean powerless.
Count Olaf, is the dastardly villain in this 13 book series and will do anything to get his hands on the Baudelaire fortune. If your children love Roald Dahl then these books will be a perfect next read.
This series of novellas led many of us budding readers slowly into the spooky world of horror fiction. We trembled in terror at the thought that inanimate objects could become possessed by supernatural entities and try to harm us!
From 1992 to 1997, R.L. Stine published an incredible 62 books under the Goosebumps title. If you introduce these books to your own little readers, make sure you tuck them in tight at night and check under the bed for monsters!
