Australia’s Favorite Children Books To Keep In Your Pouch

Australia’s Favorite Children’s Books To Keep In Your Pouch

Sometimes, as we at Dr. Pops know, it may seem like such a task to give your kids their proper nutrients; from planning & prepping to executing (and making sure they actually eat). It is as equal a task to develop their love and interest of reading at an early age.This challenge is felt across the world.

No doubt there are differences between how each culture raises their children. However, basic nurturing, warm parenting, and most of all, trusted teaching are innate desires for each child across the map.

This year’s Australian National Children’s Laureate and celebrated children’s author, Jackie French, says, “You want a magic potion to make your kids brighter? Give them books.”

Australian or American, I’m sure we can all agree with Jackie.

Voted by 5,000 Aussie participants, the Australian Booksellers’ Association came up with a list of 50 Favorite Kids’ Books.
