Exciting news!

Australia Post and I have recently collaborated to help find ways to promote a love of reading in children through a series of posts. If you find yourself struggling with ideas to help ignite that passion for reading in your teenager or younger children, feel free to check out my previous posts Encouraging Kids to Read and How to Encourage Teens to Read.

Now, I get super excited about children’s books, particularly ones with stunning illustrations and positive messages that can spark a child’s imagination and ignite some joy! So I wanted to share some of my children’s favourites with you and, of course, a few of my own.

Picking nine favourite bedtime stories was a difficult task; there are so many beautiful bedtime storybooks available! I can assure you, however, that each book on our list has been chosen and shared here with great love!

What You Do With An Idea

This brilliant book tells the story of one idea and the child who helps bring it into the world. The child’s confidence grows and so does the idea itself. This story inspires you to welcome ideas and to give it some time to see what happens next. The book is suited to all ages.

The Wiggles Audio Books

I picked up the collection of Wiggles audiobooks from Australia Post. They are perfect for younger kids and they can read along with the audio CD. If you have a Wiggles fan in the house, these are a ‘must-have’ for your collection.

I Had a Favorite Dress

This stylish story is about growing up and holding on to your favourite memories. Over the years, the favourite dress goes through some changes, from a dress to a scarf and so on, until all that’s left of it is a happy memory.  This book is one of my own daughter’s favourites.

This is a true story of Winnie the Bear that follows his travels, friendships and adventures. I love that it’s a classic story filled with truly beautiful watercolour illustrations.
