Today we launched our list of 100 Children’s Books to Read in a Lifetime and it’s been fun to hear from readers and co-workers about their favorites. When we came up with our list we were thinking only about books for readers age 12 and under. Of course, we wanted to include classics like Goodnight Moon and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but we also wanted to have the recent releases that we think are going to be favorites for future generations, like Wonder and The Day the Crayons Quit.
What books on this list do you love? What would you have added if it was your list? We have a poll on Goodreads where you can vote, and in two weeks we’ll announce the Readers Choice version of 100 Children’s Books to Read in a Lifetime.
