    Next question...

    Anywhere in New Territories/Mongkok that sells these books?
    Keep meaning to get to Dymocks in Wanchai but quite a heavy workload at moment so prefer to spend the time with the kids.
    You can buy online. We sell books on ShopinHK.Com

    Where to buy them

    On this site, if you go to "Shop Online" and then choose "Books" and then choose "Children's Books" and then choose "award winning"

    I myself usually buy them via Paddyfield <> (over HK$ 150 and the delivery is free) or else online from the US
    sometimes from the used book seller and sometimes from Once or wtice I have had to go to to get what I wanted (all the Dr. Xargle books, for example)

    I also buy books when I go to visit the USA, and when I am in China I also visit book stores to find decent kids books in Chinese.

    In addition to Dymocks & Page One, don't forget The Commercial Press and other smaller ones.

    Here are some of our favourites (many of which I rememeber having read to me as a child),

    'Dear Zoo,' Rod Campbell
    'We're going on a bear hunt,' Rosen/Oxenbury
    'Peepo,' Janet and Allan Ahllberg (there are several good childrens books writeen by the Ahlbergs includ. 'The Jolly Postman,')
    'Meg and Mog,' Jan Pieowski (there are lots in the serious about this cat and witch duo who get into all sorts of ridiculous happenings)
    'Spot the dog,' (again lots of Spot books)
    'The very hungry Caterpillar,' Eric Carle (Eric Carle has written many, many books for children and anything by him is pretty good)
    'Guess how much I love you,' McBratney (this is a beautiful book)
    'Harry and the dinosaurs,' Whybrow/Reynolds
    'Can't you sleep little bear,' Martin Waddell

    Agree with all the list above (I think we have them all too), would also add Julia Donaldson to the list.

    Her books are fab and include ...
    The Gruffalo (probably her most famous)
    Monkey Puzzle,
    Smartest Giant in Town,
    A Squash and a Squueze
    Room on the Broom

    The illustrations are great and involve so much more than just what's happening in the main story. She also has rhyme books and songs. for info.

    Also love the Dr Suess books as they are silly and bright.

    I also found amazon as a good source for book info as they have lots of recommended 'lists' that you can take a look at.
