If you're taking part in the 2021 Audiobook Listening Challenge then you'll know that one of the tasks is to listen to an audiobook of a children's classic!
In her short essay, Why You Should Read Children's Books Even Though You Are So Old and Wise, children's author Katherine Rundell writes that reading children's books gives us the opportunity to return to stories where hope counts for something, where bravery is important, and where empathy and love are vital. Ultimately, they give us hope.
That's why they're the perfect balm for the year 2021. And why we've put together a collection of our favourites below! Enjoy!
