It might be a little on the sad side, but there is something pretty amazing about the classic tale of Charlottes Web. This story of a pig, a girl and a spider is so good that it was even made into a movie. However, to really enjoy it as best you can, we recommend that you read the book with your little one first. We also recommend this as a story for those kids who are not a massive fan of spiders, as it may really help with their fear as well as being a thoroughly awesome kids book!
If you have a younger child then you may want to start with a slightly gentler kids book. Julia Donaldson is an amazing author of books for younger children and her stories are not only packed full of amazing characters but also lots of fun and adventure too. There are a real wealth of stories that you can choose from in her catalogue, but one that really sticks out has to be The Gruffalo. A tale of a mouse who is trying to stay away from a rather scary beast that lives in the woods!
