It’s difficult with preschoolers to find the right books, and things like Audiobooks and CBeebies Bedtime stories are great ways to expand their knowledge and yours… on the variety of books. At those ages having you read them the books means the story has to have some good qualities, Whether it be vibrant illustrations, simple understanding, funny characters or a subtle story to get the kids engaged, these are often seen as important things to focus on.

Curious George is a children’s book series about the adventures of a mischievous monkey named George and his human friend, the Man in the Yellow Hat. The stories typically involve George getting into trouble due to his curiosity and the Man in the Yellow Hat helping him out of the situation. There are many different stories in the series and has also spawned a TV series and Film.
These are just 5 stories available of course, and for me, these are some of the biggest and more known franchises, we’ve all probably read these or at least heard, watched, or been read to for almost all of these. The Hungry Caterpillar for example has been a mainstay in our household, I’ve read and seen Cat in the Hat and Curious George more times than I can remember, and to be honest, some of these stories can easily be carried for the kids over the next 5 years due to some of its stories and fun. But whatever is good in your household it’s great to have that experience with the kids and reading.
