100 Children’s Books to Read in a Lifetime

You all LOVED the 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime which included some kids classics, but what about 100 Children’s Books to Read in a Lifetime.

The Amazon Book Editors have created a list of 100 Children’s Books to Read in a Lifetime that will create loads of adventures & memories for your kids.

It included classics from years gone by, classics in the making, the serious, the silly, the surreal. They chose the books based on the idea of selecting the 100 that cover the years from birth (those first well-worn titles) up to age 12.
