Elton John Dishes On His Favorite Storybooks For Kids

Elton John and his partner David Furnish became parents after welcoming their son Zachary, into the world last December. Like most doting daddies, these two have made a habit of reading to their son every night. Elton spoke to British radio station Magic FM last week and said:

“Every night at 6.30pm we read him a story.” “That’s the highlight of the day. I’ve become an expert on children’s books.”

Curious as to what his favorite books are?

“Of course we’ve done the ‘Hungry Caterpillar’! He likes ‘Stick Man’ and also ‘The Gruffalo’. Author Julia Donaldson is amazing, she’s fantastic.”

Oh we love the Hungry Caterpillar, although I have to admit, we have yet to read any books by Julia Donaldson. Time for me to hit the library!

Did Elton list any of your favorites? What are some of your treasured children’s books?
