    Another lover of Enid Blytons The Faraway Tree books. I'm secretly looking forward to the Famous Five books (purchased when DD was under one!)

    ANYTHING by Enid Blyton! :D

    I have been a great fan of Enid Blyton books when I was a child. They were difficult to find in my country back then. Loved every page though when I had opportunity to read!

    Any Disney character books, The Mr Men books, also depends on what kind of things the child like's to do. If there was a book about riding a bike and your child like to ride his bike for instance.

    I am sure Kindle and other e-readers have a whole section on children's books which are free to download, so you have the choice to change the book if your child doesn't like the one you are reading.
