Here’s a list of five well-known people and their favourite children’s books.
Maybe you’ll find some treasure where these famous people found theirs …
JK Rowling – The author of the Harry Potter series loved Black Beauty by Anna Sewell and Manxmouse by Paul Gallico when she was growing up. Appropriately for BOOK WEEK 2018 she also treasured The Story of the Treasure Seekers by E Nesbitt.
Prince George – According to his dad, Prince William, George’s favourite book used to be The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. George’s mum, Kate, says he also likes books about Fireman Sam.
Meghan Markle – Long before she married Prince Harry, Meghan counted The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupèry as among her favourites. It’s funny how things work out.
Taylor Swift – The singer/songwriter lists Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White and Big Bird’s Day on the Farm by Cathi Rosenberg-Turow and Maggie Swanson as her top reads.
David Walliams – The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. He is also a fan of The Gruffalo.
And the not so famous …
M.C.D. Etheridge – This probably won’t surprise you, but my favourite children’s book when I was growing up was Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Olivia Ong – Olivia’s favourite children’s book is Matilda by Roald Dahl. She loves the story and Quentin Blake is her favourite illustrator.
I hope this list may help you Find Your Treasure.
