10 Children's Books You Should Reread As An Adult

I always like a new list of classic children's books. This one suggests 10 books we should reread as adults, which of course presumes we read them initially as a child. I don't think I read any of these as a child.

1. Where the Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

2. Love You Forever - Robert Munsch, Shelia McGraw

3. Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown, Clement Hurd

4. Where the Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein

5. The Little Engine that Could - Watty Piper

6. Oh, The Places You'll Go! - Dr Seuss

7. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - Judith Viorst, Ray Cruz

8. A Series of Unfortunate Events - Lemony Snicket (well, I've read the first one)

9. The Giver - Lois Lowry (see my review)

10. Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A. Milne


I really need to get those other two read. They're on every classic list.

Like you I read none of these as a child, but have now read all of them except The Giver.

You REALLY must read Winnie-the-Pooh Louise!!
There is now also a great picture book based on the real Winnie-the-pooh which I think you will love to.

About half of these I read as a child and most of the rest I discovered as an adult. Love You Forever is the only one I have yet to read.

My students always appreciate Where the Sidewalk Ends and Winnie the Pooh. You'll like them too!

I'm surprised to see Unfortunate Events and The Giver. While I agree these are great books too, the rest on the list are picture books.

Where the Sidewalk Ends is amazing. I have always wondered why it isn't on the 1001 list.
