Early years booklist

At Myatt Garden we have chosen a selection of ‘Core Books’ for children in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage – Nursery & Reception). These books are a mixture of classics and exciting new books across a range of styles and genres. During their time in the EYFS children will get to know these books inside out. This will help them use stories, language, characters and ideas as part of their role play, art work, story-telling and eventually writing. We hope they are also books that children will enjoy sharing with their families too!.
