Scholastic Revealed Their #1 Book on the Top 100 Greatest Books for Kids. Did Your Favorite Make the List?

I read about 12 books with my kids today. I will probably read even more with them tomorrow and many of them repeated through out the day. We love our books and since all four of us are learning French (with the kids being in French Immersion school), we have those books in our hands a lot more then we used to — just to fit in the new language.

I have been a big fan of reading since I was a little 4-year-old myself. Many of the books my kids love now are ones that I adored when I was a young one.  Many kid books stay classic through the times — the good ones do anyway.

Starting back in December the editors of Parent & Child Magazine compiled a list of the 100 greatest books for kids and revealed 10 a week on their website starting from book 100. Today, they revealed their #1 pick for the greatest books for kids. It could not have been an easy task!
