Elton John Shares His Favorite Children’s Books

Elton John and his partner David Furnish welcomed a son, Zachary, this past December. And the doting dads read to their son every night!

“Every night at 6.30pm we read him a story,” Elton tells British radio station Magic FM. “That’s the highlight of the day. I’ve become an expert on children’s books.”

So what are Elton’s favorite books?

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

What are your favorite children’s books?
