Childhood books

This is a story I remember fondly from my childhood. My mum read to me before I went to sleep. I cannot remember when she stopped doing it. This is my original copy - what a treasure. Another book I remember and have just sourced is Tikki Tikki Tembo.

Do you know this book?

What was a special childhood book for you?

I think I remember Ping. And Tikki Tikki Tembo No Sa Rembo Murri Burri Ruchi Pip Peri Pembo!!! Something like that anyway... Gold. I've recently found 'In The Night Kitchen' by Maurice Sendak which I read as a kid and loved... my boys love it now too.

I remember Harry the Dirty Dog, Bedtime for Frances and Mike Mulligan's Steam Shovel from my childhood.My kids loved Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day; Each Peach Pear Plum; Peepo; Lucky Duck; Tessa Snaps Snakes; Meg and Mog; John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat and soooo many more!

I remember reading this book to my kids when they were little ..... one of my very favourite books is THE VELVETEEN RABBIT ..... I cry every time I read that book when I get to the bit in the book where he talks about being real. I loved The Wishing Chair and The Magic Faraway Tree. I don't think I could entirely remember all the books I read as a child because I read so many.

Ping!! I have an old copy that belonged to my Grandmother. Had to be a favorite.
And "the little trian that could!"

I think the children brought Ping home from the library once. For me it was "Little Dream" by Cynthia Leonetti
