A classic children’s book is timeless; its story always relevant, always full of treasure, accessible to all ages. Each generation discovers them anew and it is a wonderful moment to share a favorite with your child. I will be reviewing these books, linking them as I go, but it almost seems unnecessary. If I have left a title off this list, send me an email and let me know!
