5 British Picture Books

Our childhood visits to England left us with a deep, crazy love for British books.
No wonder, when we grew up reading books like this.

Here are 5 of our favourite British picture books for kids.

"Once there was a little girl called Sophie, & she was having tea with her mummy in the kitchen. Suddenly there was a ring at the door."
by Judith Kerr

"Here's a little baby
One, two, three
Stands in his cot
What does he see?"
by Janet & Allen Ahlberg

"The children were having breakfast.
This was not a pleasant sight."
by Jill Murphy

"Mr. & Mrs. Brown first met Paddington on a railway platform."
by Michael Bond

"One day Alfie came home from Nursery School with a card in an envelope.
His best friend, Bernard, had given it to him."
by Shirley Hughes

In case you where wondering...
If I could only get one of these, it would be The Tiger Who Came to Tea, no question.
Kids love that book. Because it's awesome.


  1. I have just stumbled across your blog (Via the Beckett's Apartment post) and love it! Looking forward to spending some time perusing it :) And these books - love them :) As a Brit I had them all as a child, and they are definitely ones I would want my own kids to someday have.
