My kids are going to help choose some of their all-time favourites and we'd love to hear from you with some of yours. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a special kid's book you'd like to suggest!
Daddy's Little Girl by Peter Wilson
Our very first pick is extra special since it's written by local Ajax author, Peter Wilson and illustrated by Carol Matsuyama from Port Perry. Daddy's Little Girl is a heart-warming story about a father and daughter relationship. It begins with a newborn bundle of joy and follows through to her wedding day! If you enjoyed Love You Forever by Robert Munsch, you'll definitely want to buy a copy of this story to add to your family collection.
The Salamandar Room by Anne Mazer
This book is about a young boy who befriends a salamander. He sets up a magical room to make the salamander feel right at home with him. The illustrations are gorgeous and any nature-lover will enjoy this story. Boys who are engrossed with slimy creatures will particularly love it and probably want to make a salamander room of their very own! Suitable for ages 5-9.
Cleo the Cat by Caroline Mockford
This colourful board book is perfect for toddlers with its simple text and bright illustrations. It's about a curious kitten who is looking for a home and finds a friend!
The Rainbow Magic Fairy books are the perfect first chapter books for young girls to read themselves. This special Halloween edition seemed a good pick for our October edition. We started reading these books to our daughter when she was 5 or 6 and now she flies through them herself. While the plots in these books are fairly unoriginal (come on Jack Frost, leave the fairies alone!), the kids seem to just LOVE them!They even have a fun website with online games and activities!
