I was going to ask for recommendations for a 2 year old but with Christmas coming, thought the thread could turn into a general thread of all ages.
So, what's a favourite in your house and for what age? Got a few Julia Donaldson's on the wish list, along with the others by Giles Andreae
We like (2 year old girl):
Giraffes can't dance (she's pretty much word perfect on it now!)Commotion in the OceanRumble in the JungleThe GruffaloStick ManRoom on the Broom
She's also got Keith the cat with the magic hat but doesn't ever seem to want that. Was going to look at getting Barry and Norman but not sure now.

D (2.5 yrs) loves the Julia Donaldson ones. Especially Gruffalo and smartest Giant in town.
She loves the hungry caterpillar
we have a few winnie the pooh
She loves Hairy McClary from Donaldsons Dairy too.
I want to get her the tiger that came to tea among others.
She loves books x

3 year old here, loves various Julia Donaldson but not gruffalo bizarrely enough, I got her a book people set of peppa books last year which she loves. Then some traditional like goldilocks, billy goats gruff, that kind of thing. And she's got some Disney stories too, Cinderella, beauty and the beast etc.
My personal favourite Julia dobaldsons are what the ladybird heard and monkey puzzle

Lots of Julia Donaldson favourites here too. Apart from ones already mentioned,Tabby McTat and Sharing a Shell are good.
All the Hairy Maclary books are good. Owl Babies is a lovely bedtime story (can't remember the author off the top my head).

Barry is great, I love it!
Jolly postman is the all time favourite in our house

my two loved Allan Ahlberg stuff (esp Jolly Postman) and 'Each Peach Pear Plum' because they can help you read as each page starts with the same words
Hairy McClary books also a big hit
Mr Seahorse, Hungry Catepillar, Dr Seuss

Obviously The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's child, firm favourites since the toddler days.
Barry, the fish with fingers, fab!
Aliens Love Underpants and Aliens love Panta Claus.
Topsy and Tim books.
B loves the Mr Men series, he has loads of them.
