CP Tips | Top Book Choices By Age: 0-5 years

Foster a love of reading from an early age and stimulate children’s imaginations with helping them build a fun and engaging book collection. Emma Kendall from Footsteps Tutoring gave us her top recommendations by age group.


Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes – Mem Fox

A picture book classic about babies, who, although they are from around the world, all share the common trait of having the same number of digits. The gentle rhyming text makes this a brilliant read-aloud book for babies.




Peep Inside The Zoo – Anna Milbourne

Peep under leaves and behind doors to see the animals in the zoo in this delightful flap book for young children. With flaps and holes to peep underneath and through, noisy parrots, cheeky monkeys, very tall giraffes and lots more are revealed.






That’s Not My Tiger – Fiona Watt

A delightful touchy-feely book with simple, repetitive text, bright, colourful illustrations and carefully chosen textures to touch and feel on every page. Great for developing language and sensory skills.








You Choose! – Pippa Goodhart

Imagine you could go anywhere, with anyone and do anything. Where would you live? Where would you sleep? Who would be your friends? What games would you play? An interesting and fun way to introduce the concept of choice.







Pants – Giles Andreae and Nick Sharrat

Small children love pants. They love talking about pants. They giggle whenever pants are mentioned. A brilliant book with rhyming text and lots of hilarious pictures which will have children asking for this book again and again.






Spinderella – Julia Donaldson

A fantastic picture book about a football-playing spider. When Spinderella wants to play football her brothers and sisters end up fighting so Spinderella makes a wish to learn about numbers so she can help them all play a fair game of football.
