Top 10 Favourite Kids’ Books

Top 10 Favourite Kids’ Books


Mine was Sylvester and the Magic Pebble or Many Moons.

I had lots more favourite kid books, but those were my favourites!

We all have our favourites. Ones we could probably recite off to heart, even today. And, how many times have you read the same books ad nausea to your kids?

The Annapolis Valley Regional Library has several great lists on their site:

Autism Resources – For those who want to know more about autism and ASD.

Outstanding International Books – Best books from around the world

Silent Books – Or, wordless books for everyone to read & share.

Talk, Sing, Read –  100 Books to Share – 100 terrific books to give your child a head start before school.

Great Early Readers – A list for those just learning to read, or those who are reading alone and want some easy chapter books.

Make it! – A booklist for families to explore together. Great ideas for keeping you busy, year round.


Recently, I asked a question on my Facebook page:
What is your favourite children’s book?

I really thought there would be a few standard answers, but I shouldn’t have been so surprised! There were literally hundreds of books listed!
I did a tally chart and came up with our top 10 list of favourite kids’ books.
