Kids’ Books

Szaba Book PileIn honor of Children’s Book Week, here are 87 great kids’ books. (That should help keep your minions busy this summer.)

Bookmark it, load up your library queue, or head to your local bookstore to pick up a few for someone special.

Most of these are for younger kids, but if you scroll down to the bottom, you’ll find 15 or so for older kids, too (or simply for kids at heart).

Obviously, this isn’t an end-all-be-all list. There are simply too many great ones to ever catalog them all.

How many have you read? Bring back any memories? What would you add? I’d love to hear your responses in the comments!
