Here at nannyjob.co.uk, we’ll never stop talking about how important books and stories are for children. That’s why we’ve put together a list of 5 books, perfect for young readers.

Remember that books aren’t just for children who can already read, it’s just as important that you read to your children, no matter how old they are!

The Rainbow Fish – Teach your child the importance of sharing with this beautiful book. The shiny illustrations will be especially attractive to younger children.

The Lorax – Dr. Seuss books, in general, are full of fantastic morals and life lessons, whilst the whimsical rhymes make them fun and memorable for children of all ages. In particular, The Lorax teaches children about the importance of taking care of our planet – a crucial lesson in today’s changing world.

The Gruffalo – Your child will learn that no matter how small they are, they’re capable of BIG things!

Elmer – This colourfully creative story is all about self-acceptance. Teach your children that what’s on the outside doesn’t matter, because it’s how you see yourself that truly counts.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf – Honesty is the best policy in this classic tale about what goes wrong when you don’t tell the truth.

All of these stories are perfect for young children and each one contains a very important lesson. After you’ve finished reading, start a discussion with your child, talk to them about why things happened the way that they did, try to relate it to a real-life situation and encourage your child to ask questions.
