1001 CHILDREN'S BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP is the most excellent guide book for anyone who loves children's books and any parent or adult who needs a hand knowing what books to buy for kids. While it's a great book of recommendations for kids' reading, you may find yourself flipping through the pages with a certain sense of nostalgia over the books you are bound to recognise from your own childhood. Considering we were all children once and that children's books so often offer a richness that adult's books don't, I'd count this as a must-have for every bookshelf. It will make you wish you were under your old childhood doona with a hot chocolate and a story book like The Little Engine That Could or...

Product Description

1001 CHILDREN'S BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP is the perfect introduction to the very best books of children's fiction: those books that have a special place in the heart of every reader. It introduces a wonderfully rich world of literature to parents and their children, offering both new titles and muchloved classics that many generations have read and enjoyed. From wordless picture books and simple, illustrated story books through to hard-hitting and edgy teenage fiction, the titles featured in this book reflect the wealth of children's fiction available today. Uniquely, children's books deal both in words and pictures. So, whatever the reading age or ability, there is something for everyone. Among the 1001 titles, there are national and international classics as well as works by the most well-known, successful, and "literary" contemporary writers for each age group. Browsing the titles in 1001 CHILDREN'S BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP will take you on a journey of discovery into fantasy, adventure, history, contemporary life, and much more. These books will enable you to travel to some of the most famous worlds imagined, such as Narnia, Middle Earth, and Hogwart's School. And the route taken may be pretty strange, too. You may fall down a rabbit hole, as Alice does on her way to Wonderland, or go through the back of a wardrobe to reach the snowy wastes of Narnia. Organized broadly by age group - 0 to 3, 3+, 5+, 8+, and teenage fiction - 1001 CHILDREN'S BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP is an ideal reference for parents keen to introduce their children to the wonderful world of books and for all adults to revisit the favourite books of their own childhood. Illustrated with original cover art where possible, each chapter presents the books in order of publication to give a sense of the rich tradition of children's fiction and illustration from Aesop's Fables to Neil Gaiman's THE GRAVEYARD BOOK.
