My Favorite Children’s Books starting with the letter P

The letter P brings plenty of choices,

A title and illustrator:

Princess Prunella and the Purple Peanut

by Margaret Atwood

Illustrated by Dusan Petricic

When a gifted author finds as many words as possible starting with the letter P and successfully puts them all together into a story, the reader is in for a real treat. This is a great read aloud. Illustrated with details and humour.

Beatrix Potter

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

A classic story with a main character children will identify with as well as parents, especially those who have a little Peter who has wandered in Mr MacGregor’s garden once or twice. Beatrix Potter’s lovely pastel illustrations portrait animals in familiar daily situations with incomparable charm.


A title:

The Paper Dolls

by Julia Donaldson

Rebecca Cobbs

Nice Story about childhood and growing up. The repetition makes it a good read-aloud
