The Best Books To Read To Your One Year Old

If you read one book to your child each day, they will have read 1,825 books by their fifth birthday.


One of my favourite parts of my day is reading to my little boy. It’s such a great time to bond and spend time together at the end of a busy day.

I read a quote online not so long ago that said “if you read just one book to your child each day, they will have read 1,825 books by their fifth birthday”

I love that!

The Gruffalo

A classic, this is Leo’s favourite book! He loves anything Julia Donaldson for the rhyme and the fun throughout!

A Gruffalo? What’s a Gruffalo?


A Sick Day for Amos McGee

This is a lovely short story about friendship and the importance of helping out others when they need it most.


The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I remember having this read to me when I was a little girl so I love now reading this to Leo.


Where the Wild Things are

Leo LOVES the photos in this one, it’s been around for so long but never loses its spark to keep children interested.


The Lorax

Leo loves this because of the rhyming, but I love it because of the amazingly beautiful story each world tells about saving the planet one step at a time, and the consequences if we don’t. I feel that’s very important in this day and age. The story demonstrates how one person can be responsible for the condition of this earth and so we all must take care of it in every way we can.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.


Guess How Much I Love You

We adore this book, it’s a great one before bed so that your little one knows just how loved they are and they can go to sleep feeling secure and confident.

Then he lay down, close by and whispered with a smile, ‘I love you right up to the moon … and BACK’



I have a Peppa Pig obsessed little boy so he loves peppa pig books! We have 27 Peppa Pig books so far … and counting.

The Very Funny Frog

This is a pop up book and I feel like these type of books always have an ability to make children smile! Although, he does like to rip out the pages!


Hope you enjoyed this post!

All my love,
