Best Books for Kids

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

The New York Public Library just announced their list of 100 Great Children’s Books. Their picks are a great mix of picture books (Don Freeman’s Corduroy) and chapter books (Matilda by Roald Dahl). I count 74 books from the recommended titles that I’ve read with my boys. Full disclosure: I was a children’s librarian before I became an editor at FamilyFun, so some may consider that cheating! How many have you and your kids read?
