Happy World Story Telling Day! No, we’re not telling stories, it really is the day for celebrating all things imagination and creativity. To celebrate this lovely day, we’re doing a rundown of the top 10 best ever children’s stories.


  1. Where the Wild Things Are – Beautifully quirky illustrations plus a tale that teaches little ones to appreciate their parents? What’s not to love?


  1. The Little Prince – A recommended read for little thinkers, The Little Prince is a beautiful blend of children’s literature and philosophy. We guarantee you’ll learn as much as your children do.


  1. The Cat in the Hat – Really any Dr. Seuss book could have made this list but The Cat in the Hat holds a special place in our heart, with Green Eggs and Ham a close runner up.


  1. Winnie-the-Pooh – Who didn’t want their very own BFF (Bear Friend Forever) when they were little? These whimsical tales of exploration, friendship, and growing up are a must for any children’s library.


  1. The Giving Tree – Another book that teaches little ones the valuable lesson of appreciation, this is a classic story that every child should read. Just trust us and get the tissues ready.


  1. The Very Hungry Caterpillar – We personally value any book that teaches us that we’ll become more beautiful the more we eat but Eric Carle’s unique illustrations and quirky tale have made this an absolute classic. Just let your children know that only caterpillars should work their way through a lollipop, a pickle, a chocolate cake, a slice of swiss cheese, cherry pie, a cupcake, and a watermelon all in one go.


  1. Alice in Wonderland – From Cheshire cats to growing potions, Alice in Wonderland is a timeless classic that has inspired so much of modern literature and culture. The perfect read for little ones with big imaginations.


  1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – It is officially impossible to choose just one Roald Dahl book but – if we had to – this sometimes dark, always exciting, and oh-so-hilarious adventure just pips the others to the post.


  1. The Famous Five Stories – Each of Enid Blyton’s exciting mysteries is guaranteed to intrigue inquisitive minds plus we can’t think of any group more #squadgoals than the Famous Five.


  1. Harry Potter – No list of children’s stories would be complete without The Boy Who Lived. If you haven’t started this magical adventure with your children, we recommend starting with The Philosopher’s Stone in Year 7 and then reading one book per year so your children can grow up as Harry does.
