Even though it was *cough cough* years ago, I can still remember how much I Ioved this book when I was a kid.
Appley Dapply’s Nursery Rhymes by Beatrix Potter
In fact all of Miss Potter’s tales continued to delight me and my sister when we were little. And I can’t tell you how magical it was to watch No 1 Son learning to read from the same dog-eared copies of those much-loved books.
Today of course is World Book Day, a chance to celebrate reading and the wonderful world it opens up for our kids.
But what was the first book you remember reading as a child? I’d love to know.
