How Many of These Children's Books Have You Read?

In April, Culture columnist released her compiled list of the 11 best children's books of all time. She came up with this list based on responses from book critics, authors, and editors from around the world. How many have you read? What would you put in your list. Culture's List of the 11 Best Children's Books

I'm proud to say I have read 7 of the 11. That means I've likely missed some great books, but there are some that I read and reread so many times in my childhood, that I don't feel bad. Given that, I do have my own list too. Many of these were so memorable that I tracked down copies when my own kids were little. That was when Internet was still hard to come by in my area, so it wasn't as easy as it is today. For one of them, there is a reason my dog's name is Sam I Am.

11.  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory By Roald Dahl


  1. I only have five out of eleven! But I'm so glad that two of my favorites made it onto this list -- "Winnie-the-Pooh," and "The Velveteen Rabbit." Thanks for the post.
