The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson
My absolute favorite children's book and also my kids favourite! They absolutely love it! I recommend this book to everybody to read. It is the story of Mouse, who, while strolling through the deep dark wood, comes across many other forest creatures who want to EAT him! He out-smarts his predators by inventing a bigger badder monster that he calls the Gruffalo. But what happens when he comes across the Gruffalo in the forest? This little mouse is so clever! So many lessons for children in this book about believing in yourself and the power of words. Don't believe everything you hear! It is such a fun read, Julia Donaldson is an absolute master of children's literature and your kids will not be disappointed! Also, if you love the Grufflao, there is a second book, called The Gruffalo's Child.
