Reading is so important for children and so here are my top books for older kids
1. Paddington – Michael Bond
Paddington Bear is a classic tale. My daughter can tell you all the facts about Paddington, where he comes from (Peru – sorry Darkest Peru!), where he was found (Paddington station of course!) and what he likes to eat – Marmalade sandwiches. Paddington has a kind heart but is totally clueless in our world and gets himself into all sorts of scrapes! Woohoo Paddington hits the big screen in the UK on November the 28th – we have been waiting for what seems like FOREVER!
