Ok EB book gurus, I need some children's books for a 1-2 yo that have a James in them. The only one I can think of is James and the giant peach and that's a much older book.

Suggestions??

Thomas the Tank Engine series has lots of books that feature James.

There's a Jim in Hop on Pop. Other than that I'm drawing a total blank.

You could always order one of those personalised generic books.

On Book Depository you can search for all 'picture books' with 'james' in the title - quite a few come up.

Do a book depository search, like this:

http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/search/adv...;page=2#content


Go to their site, go to advanced search and put 'james' in the title section, hit enter, then once that comes up, select 'childrens book' on the left.

A friend did this for my son, it's lovely having some books with his name in them original.gif

My son (James) had quite a collection of books, models and such stuff of James, the Red Engine of Thomas the Tank Engine fame. He's 21 now, so it's been around a while.

Love the ideas posted about searching for the name in the title under "children's books". Wish I'd thought of that first!

Thanks so much! The book depository ones are all out of stock but it gives me the names of lots of books to look elsewhere for.
Hooray!

I haven't ordered the books from this site but the bags and lables are great. Awesome turnaround time usually too.
