The 11 Best Australian Children’s Books!

child-bible-1050x700

One of the most interesting things about raising my little miracle baby in Australia is that we’re exposed to all kinds of different children’s literature. They literally have different books over here, most of which prominently feature the delightfully fascinating and cuddly animals native to this wonderful land.

These books are just screaming to be ranked and – as we proved with our brave posts on the 17 best children’s books of all time and the best Christmas books for kids – we here at Daddy’s Little Miracle have the courage to do it. So we read every single children’s book in the country dating back to the 1300’s and came up with the 11 best.

Here they are:

1. The Complete Adventures of Blinky Bill
