Reading with our children is one of life’s great joys. It’s good for the soul, and helps us teach children valuable lessons about the world through the voice of characters they love and admire. This Mother’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of books which will warm the cockles of you and your little one’s heart. Whether you’re looking for an endearing read with one of your own, or a gift for a new mum, this list is packed full of enchanting stories and charming illustrations.
