A family photographer asked 2,000 parents to name their favourite children's books, then recreated scenes from the 10 most popular tales with babies aged from just four weeks to 20 weeks old.
'Stories play a huge part in childhood, helping to develop creative imaginations as well as reading skills,' said Richard Mayfield, creative director of Venture Photography, who created the images for National Storytelling Week.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory topped the poll, with 31 per cent of parents choosing it as their favourite read.
Mum Kate, whose six-month-old son Lucas took starred as Charlie Bucket in the photo shoot, said: 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of my all-time favourite stories and I am sure that it's one I'll read time and time again with Lucas as he grows up.
'Roald Dahl has created some incredible stories for children and I, personally, am delighted that so many parents agree with me.'
