Summary
  • After being read Goodnight Moon, a young girl places the book on the floor and tries to climb into it. A parent has gone through Harry the Dirty Dog twenty-five times in one day, and then the child says, "Now read it to me again." For years bored by books, a ten-year-old boy picks up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and works his way, feverishly, through five volumes... When it comes to children and reading, millions of such stories exist. Nothing in a child's intellectual development offers more pleasure or more excitement than a good book. Nothing lasts longer in memory than childhood reading experiences. And nothing ensures the success of a child in society more than being read to from infancy through young adulthood. Reading books to and with children is the single most important thing a parent, grandparent, or other significant adult can do. Because children are young for such a short time, we need to give them their literary heritage during these brief years. Just as every literate adult knows certain books, every child should know specific children's books. If we fail to present these books to children, they reach adulthood without a basic literary heritage
  • By selecting only 100 "best books," Anita Silvey distinguishes her guide from all others and makes it possible to give young readers their literary heritage in the childhood years. The books we hear or read when we are children stay with us all our lives. If we miss them when we are young, we'll miss them forever: no Hungry Caterpillar, no Winn-Dixie, no Roll of Thunder. As adults we remember a few familiar favorites, but only an expert like Anita Silvey, with her thirty-five years at the heart of children's book publishing, could put together an authoritative list like this one. Parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, and booksellers will feel completely comfortable recommending these books for any child, from the infant to the almost-teen. Silvey includes, in addition to the 100 best, extensive lists of books to meet particular interests, as well as classics, selected by the child's age, to round out this extraordinarily useful work. In addition to giving an age range and the plot of each book, Silvey relates the fascinating, often hilarious story behind the story, something only an insider in the field of children's publishing could tell. 100 Best Books for Children is as fun to read as it is helpful
