Top ten books that reception MUST hear, suggestions please.

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by aquapalmerfish, Jan 4, 2012.

  1. Hi, our head has asked each teacher to provide him with a list of 10 books that each class MUST hear- just for the love of reading and enjoyment! Oldies and brand spanking new titles are all applicable. I just wondered what titles you would have on your list for Reception. Once complied the head will by the set for each class (that's my class, unfortuantely not all of yours, lol!!! ). Thanks in anticipation x
