We had to read five books from this list this week for my Resources for Children class. Thought some of you might be interested to see what some consider the best, most enduring children's books of all time. Of course, there were several factors that went into these choices that I won't bore you with here. A lot of these books I recall disliking as a kid (Madeline, Make way for Ducklings, The Snowy Day and Frog and Toad are Friends). Others, I really liked, such as Babar and Curious George. I've italicized the ones I choose to read for class.
