Just as there are adult classics, there are children's classics. These are books that every child should know about, for example, titles like Good Night, Moon by Margaret Wise Brown and The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss for younger readers, and stories like Charlotte's Web and Little House on the Prairie for older readers. No child should miss Winnie-the-Pooh or Little Bear. There are dozens of books to help you choose the best in books. I wrote How to Raise a Reader for that very reason, including the books I used to raise two readers of my own and the books I shared with the hundreds of children who attended the schools I've served as teacher, librarian, and principal. But consult some other experts as well as you build a library for your children. Here are the sources I recommend:
