There are just certain children’s book series and stand alone novels that are a must read when it comes to children or adults. These are timeless treasures that people should read no matter what just to say that they read them.
Some people find these titles boring and silly. Others love them and read them so often that their copies of the book fall apart and pages fly all over the place.
Here are some of the must read books for children.
Harry Potter. It’s not a children’s picture book but Harry Potter changed the world and way children look at reading. If you don’t give the books a try from a children’s stand point you are missing out.
Narnia. Another series that is a fantasy favorite. These books have captured the hearts of people young and old and teach a great moral story while they are at it.
Spot. So spot is a dog and this is very much an interactive children’s book but what shelf wouldn’t be complete with at least one or two of the books on the shelf.
The Little Engine That Could. If you haven’t read this book, stop what you are doing, go to the store, Amazon or the library and get it out immediately! This is an inspiring and great story that all children and adults should read at least once. I think I can!
The Magic School Bus. A great series that allows children to learn about science, weather, biology and a number of other items with great story lines, silly characters and great pictures. Gotta get that spark for science going at an early age.
Fairy Tales. Every child has to be read some version of the fairy tales. These don’t have to be the dark scary versions but every child must know the very basics of the fairy tales that are such a foundation for today’s literature.
