  1. The RATTLETRAP CAR written by Phyllis Root and illustrated by Jill Barton is such a fabulous, fun book to read. The delightfully descriptive words just trip off the tongue. A deserving favourite.

  2. Can big kids enter this one too??! Hope so. Problem: too many notable PBs to choose a winner from. But I keep going back to Mem Fox’s WHERE IS THE GREEN SHEEP? Timeless, entertaining, useful (especially on long plane trips with under 3s) fun, inspirational, simply excellent.

  3. I have always loved DEAR GREENPEACE by Simon James. The little girls determination that she has definately seen a whale i her pond regardless of Greenpeace’s advice is so lovable.

  4. WILLY THE WIMP by Antony Browne. It can be used with ANY age group and each time i read it i get even more from it.

  5. The Sly Old Wardrobe by Ivan Southall and Ted Greenwood. Wonderfully spooky, and may explain my ongoing love for Op Shops and Grandmas.

  6. A favourite book is ‘Waiting for Mummy’ by Tae-Jun Lee – a Korean classic retold and published by Australian publishers Wilkins Farago. Story is told largely through some amazing illustrations that take me back to my own childhood as an only child waiting for my mother to finish work to tell her about my day. It transforms me into a sobbing mess with each read.
