Here are a great selection of picture books to be read aloud to children. The books are categorised according to a child’s interest level (and not reading ability) – age 2+, age 3-5 and age 5-7. The recommended books are a mixture of old time classics and award winning books. Many are firm teacher favourites and often used in schools to support the teaching of literacy. Others are new books and Home School Connect favourites. The books are not listed in any particular order.
