Mem Fox Books

Mem Fox books are a delight to read aloud and are great to share with children from babyhood up. 

Start early - in the first few days of your baby's life, if you can - and the gentle rhythms of Mem's lovely stories will help foster a life-long love of books and reading.

My three children are all young adults now but I have many precious memories of reading Mem Fox's books to them when they were small as we snuggled together.

Mem Fox is Australian (like me!) and studied children’s literature at Flinders University in Adelaide. During the course she wrote the first draft of Possum Magic, her first book, which has now sold over four million copies and is the best selling children’s book ever in Australia.

In addition to writing gorgeous picture books for children, Mem is also passionate about reading aloud and travels the world to talk about the importance of reading to babies and young children. 

As I review this page in early 2018, Mem has written 43 picture books for young children. She's also written a wonderful book for adults called Reading Magic which is about why reading aloud to babies and children is important and how to do it.

The Complete List of Mem Fox Books for Children

This is a list of the 43 books Mem has written so far for young children. A couple are out of print but you should be able to get them from your library or perhaps from a second-hand bookshop or charity shop, if there's one near you.
