Paddington is one of those characters that draws on nostalgia and reminds me of childhood. He is a character that is almost real, someone so familiar or frequently read that it feels a part of my life. There are a few book characters, that my parents read to me, that feel this way. They are an elite group book characters, but I am sure you could guess a few of them.😊

As I’m from Belgium, my favorite is probably not known in the US but here it is: Bob and Bobette. On the other hand my youngest’s favorite is definitely Paddington. We all love him.
Paddington is so cute! We’re excited to see the new movie! My favorite book character as a kid was Pooh bear.
I loved Corduroy and Madeline. When I found out I was pregnant, Corduroy was one of the first things on my registry. My son doesn’t yet love him like I did but he loves reading so that’s a bigger win I suppose.
Anne of Green gables!
Mine growing up was probably Madeline. My kids have loved Clifford, but there are so many amazing characters to choose from.
This may sound so crazy but I LOVED little critter. I always loved looking for the little mouse on each page! I do have to say though as soon as I saw this post of paddington, my heart smiled because it brought me back to my childhood and I am rocking my 3 month old and can’t wait to share reading memories with her soon!
I love Ramona Quimby, that spunky little squirt makes me smile just thinking about her and her grand adventures…

Corduroy was always a favorite. 😀
Thats such a hard question because there is so many good one. Since I have three boys that I read to I will say Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. For my 16 month old I like David..from David Shannon books to read to him. Those two charactors are favorites at my house. ☺
When I was a kid my favorite book character was Lucy from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
