I really need to get those other two read. They're on every classic list.
I've read some but not all of these ... thanks tor the recommendations.
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.
