Looking for a great book list of classics for kids to read? You are in the right place!
We are big time readers in our house. I have always loved reading and now I have passed that love onto my kids. I buy a LOT of books. I am probably what you would call a bibliphile (n. One who collects or has a great love of books). Books make us happy and help my kids to love to learn & that is my goal. I am working hard to bring the best kinds of books into our home and create a library of high-quality classics. I think having plenty of books available for your children to love helps them develop a great love of reading. Today I am going to tell you some of our favorite must-read classics for kids.
Before we get to the list I need to tell you about a great resource for buying books! Buying books and building a library is not cheap. I came across a great resource for used books recently and can’t wait to tell you all about it. Have you heard of the website Thriftbooks? They sell used books online at great prices. It is a wonderful resource for any book lover! Check it out.
