Reading Essentials: A four-year-old’s list for early readers


Ryka loves books and can’t seem to get enough of them. On being asked to choose ten favourites, she didn’t understand the logic behind just ten! Honestly, it is a stupid rule and a lot of bookworms broke it. Ryka, like a true bookworm, loves all her books. She grudgingly agreed to point out the more special ones from her shelf.

The Big Book of Barney Stories (Puffin Books): I love it because Barney has big feet!

Rosie’s Babies (by Marin Waddell): Rosie’s babies live in a nest. That’s so cute.

Noah’s Ark (by Lucy Cousins): Noah saves the animals! That’s why!

Madeline (by Ludwig Bemelmans): Madeline is brave and is not afraid of mice .

The Day the Crayons Quit (by Oliver Jeffers): Red crayon has written to me that I use red a lot and he is tired!

Owen (by Kevin Henkes): This is the story of MY blanket and me.

Let’s Get a Pup (by Bob Graham): The story is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. I like the pup.

Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs (by Ian Whybrow): I like dinosaurs!

Elmer and Rose (by David Mc Kee): I have never seen a pink elephant and Rose is funny.

Alfie’s Shop (by Shirley Hughes): Alfie has a little shop in his garden just like the one I want to have!

Ryka, we apologise for making you choose, and are thankful for the lovely list! Keep reading and come back with more next year!
