All of our kbc members and their childoos are huge fans of Bloomsbury books. They are books with heart, they gently address issues from worries to tantrums to fibbing. They make us laugh and cry. They are memorable and some of the most cherished picture books in everyone’s bookshelf (some of us have dedicated sections in our bookshelf !!). They feel like a warm hug from a trusted friend. Which is why reading one Bloomsbury Book a day keeps us all happy!
We asked everyone to share their favourite Bloomsbury books. So here goes! Most of these are for 3-7 years but some heartfelt ones can be read aloud early on as well.
