Pamela Butchart, author of 'Never Tickle a Tiger' and 'Yikes, Stinkysaurus!' has given us a prized list of her top 10 baby books.

A great way to share some time with your little one, baby books are fun, affordable and good for the whole family. Why not consider adding these beautiful, loveable stories to your collection

1. 'Each Peach Pear Plum' by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.

A wonderful, rhyming interactive picture book with 'I spy' fun that Mum and toddler can enjoy together. A much-loved classic. 

2. 'A Bit Lost' by Chris Haughton.

A lovely story about a little owl who falls out of his nest and needs help to find his mummy, with bold, original and entertaining illustrations.

3. 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle

Another much-loved classic with bright and beautiful illustrations and little caterpillar holes for babies to stick their fingers through. This was one of my first favourite books when I was little. 

4. 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury.

An engaging, rhyming picture book with beautiful illustrations throughout.  A very special book to enjoy with baby.

5. 'Dino-Baby' by Mark Sperring & Sam Lloyd.

A gorgeous book about welcoming a new baby into the family. A great book to enjoy with baby and their big brother or sister. 

6. 'Calm Down Boris' by Sam Lloyd.

A brilliantly fun book about an excitable orange monster called Boris. Babies are sure to love the furry 'Boris' hand puppet. KISSY, KISSY! 

7. 'Elmer' by David Mckee.

A beautiful, colourful book about loveable Elmer the patchwork elephant.

8. 'Peepo' by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.

A beautiful, rhyming book which follows a baby through the day. There are peep holes throughout which allow baby and parent to play 'Peepo!' A much-loved modern classic. 

9. 'Chick' by Ed Vere.

An engaging pop-up book about a chick's first day in the world.

10. 'I Love My Mummy' by Giles Andre & Emma Dodd.

A lovely book with bright and bold illustrations which explores what makes a mummy so special. 

Also, for those mums and dads in Cumbria, keep as eye out for Pamela. In July she will be visiting local schools as a part of the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour, organized by Scottish Book Trust.
