My Favorite Children’s Books starting with the letter A

An Author :

Arnold, Marsha Diane

Roar of A Snore

illustrated by Pierre Pratt


A fun Rhyming story with a good rhythm.  The kids will like to repeat the names, as the list gets longer.  Told in the third person. Starts all over at the end. Nice illustrations

Virginia Wolf

Interesting, imaginative and original story with captivating illustrations revealing an unexpected ending. Fans of Virginia Wolf will see a connection beyond the story.  Told in the first person.


To end with the letter A, I have a bonus. It’s a father and son team:

Author and illustrator

Asch, Frank and David

The Daily Comet: Boy Saves Earth from Giant Octopus

Interesting story told in the third person. Keeps the reader wondering with Hayward until … well, it has to be true! Fascinating detailed illustrations in black and white. Photograph style with several New York City landmarks
