Best Children Classic Books All Time
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo is a must read. You cannot go through life without eading this book. Your child will be sure to love it, but you will love it even more. It is a heart warming story of a china rabbit that has a journey that IS quite miraculous. I enjoy reading this to my third grade class every year. The kids can’t wait to keep reading this story. They get so engaged and find much empathy in their hearts. I have had many students let me know that this was their ALL TIME favorite book.
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is definitely a classic as it celebrates 50 years! It is a story about a tree that gives and gives until he thinks he has no more to give although he really does. The illustrations are also by Shel Silverstein and are simple black and white drawings that seem to captivate children’s minds. Any reader will be reminded of the thought of giving after reading this classic story. If you enjoy this book, then check out Where the Sidewalk Ends also by Shel Silverstein, which a book full of poems. It is also illustrated with the simple black and white drawings of Shel Silverstein.
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown is a classic bedtime story. Children never get tired of all the ways that we can say “Goodnight” and can read it over and over again. It is fun to come up with new phrases to add throughout the story as you and your child look closely at the pictures. You can watch the cute story here.
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss is an all time classic, selling over 8 million copies! Kids love this book as Sam goes through the book insisting that he does NOT like green eggs and ham….or does he? The rhyming pages in this story and fun pictures make this story a hit and easy to read over and over.
Where the Wild Things Are was written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak is a true classic of children’s literature. The Caldecott award winning pictures pull readers in just as the Wild Things pulled Max into their story. Although Max misbehaves, the message is one of parental love and will having children asking for more.
