Children’s books are the first books that many of us read. They tend to hold a special place in our heart. We decided to do the impossible and list the five best children’s books of all time. Keep reading to see which made our list!
Choosing only five is a recipe for disaster. I can already imagine people complaining about their favorite being left off. That is how these things go. Still, seeing people debate their favorite books is fun too. You can see the full list below.
The Five Best Children’s Books of All Time
- Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
- The Giving Tree By Shel Silverstein
- Goodnight Moon by Margaret Brown
- The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
- Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White
Our Five Picks
All five of the books on the list are deserving of their spot. Yes, there are going to be great children’s books left out but that is always going to be the case. Can you argue that Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak or The Giving Tree by Shel Silversteindo not deserve to be on the list. Or the other three books chosen.
These five books are all amazing children’s books and are still as popular as ever. Leaving classic children’s books off the list is not easy for us either. But with only five spots, tough decisions had to be made and we stand by them.
That is all for our list of the five best children’s books of all time. What books would you have added to this list? Let us know in the comments below. Until next time, happy reading!
