There are some books that can be found on almost every bookshelf. This applies to classics of adult literature as well as their counterparts in children's literature. The best children's books have always been those that have inspired parents and children alike for generations. So it's not surprising that some of the most popular picture books have been around in the lives of mum and dad. Other books have not been on the market for so long, but have won a loyal readership.
However, it is always difficult to give general recommendations for pure taste. But experience teaches that the most popular picture books are liked by the majority of children. Perhaps you will rediscover one or the other book from your own childhood? But don't be disappointed if your offspring doesn't like your favourite book very much. There are many great book titles for children who want to be told. Our little compilation can never be complete, of course - but maybe it will give you some ideas about what kind of children's books might be especially interesting for your family.
