The Best Children’s Books of All Time 

There are hundreds if not thousands of children’s books that come to mind. But how many of them would we want to share with children? Quite a few we imagine. The books we read as children are one of the many elements that shape us. We might not even know it but years later, these books will have a dear place in our hearts as we continue the cycle of letting the next generation read them. 

The Best Children’s Books of All Time 

Old and New Classics 

Most of these children’s books will be familiar to you. You may have read many of them and heard about the ones you didn’t. Or even watched a television show or movie adaptation. Making this list wasn’t too hard but we are sure that we will miss out on some great novels that aren’t as mainstream. 

Some of these books are probably lying somewhere around your apartment. They are short and easy to read books. We tried to leave out longer novels but a few slipped through. It is hard to leave Charlie and the Chocolate Factory off the list. And even more Dahl books could have made the list. We did include James and the Giant Peach because that felt like such an important novel. 


That is all for the best children’s books of all time list. What books should we have included on the list? Let us know in the comments below!

    Velveteen Rabbit and Peter Pan would be fine additions to the list.

    The giving tree is a terrible book, and not at all for kids

    The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss opens discussion on discrimination.

    The Wartville Wizard teaches a wonderful lesson on littering.
