    These are in no particular order but should be included in every child's library. These titles are a great way to stimulate a child's love of reading.

      This is hard to find but once you locate it, you will treasure it. This one gets the highest rating due mostly in part to the illustrations, but the story alone is amazing too.

      Silverstein may be responsible for a generation of environmentalists with this book. This book makes you want to go out and hug the nearest tree.

      I don't think I can rave about the pigeon enough. He is such an amazing child at heart that he just makes you laugh with delight.

      Read this carefully (even the adults) for the revealing twist at the end. The pigeon should know not to trust a duck.

      The Complete Alice In Wonderland

      This is an amazing book. So much imagination in these pages, it is no surprise that many creative adults today pull their inspiration from Alice and her adventures.

      Harriet the Spy

      This is better for older children (9-12) but it is a great idea for young readers. Harriet is a new type of character who breaks the mold and suffers the consequences.

      I am afraid of spiders. Yet I have read this book more than once, and I cry every time. A tale of love and hope and inspiration for every child.

      Emily of New Moon

      I prefer Emily to Anne. Both girls are distinct individuals in their world, but somehow Emily just seems more realistic and relatable.

      I cannot believe I forgot to include "The Neverending Story" by Michael Ende. Seriously! It should be on this list! It should be near the top even. Man, I am way too spaztastic.
