100 Greatest Books for Kids

Welcome to the resource center for Scholastic Parents 100 Greatest Books for Kids.



100 Greatest Books for Kids

We counted down the 100 Greatest Books for Kids as chosen by us, the editors of Scholastic Parents, on our interactive bookshelf. Here, you can find out how we made our selections; our genre sorting system (fiction, nonfiction, and award-winners), and how to engage kids of all ages in the world of literacy (quick guide: ages 0-3; ages 4-7; ages 8-10; ages 11+).

Get Social With Our 100 Greatest Books List!

  • Did your favorite book not make our list? After you sounded off on your #1 book, we posted a slideshow on the upper right-hand corner of the bookshelf of the top 10 books you voted for that didn't make our list.
