For a nice list of children's books, check out the Six boxes of Books blog. It was a countdown done by an NYPL librarian. Six boxes kindly compiled the individual posts into a single list.
I have some reading to catch up on as there are 33 of them I either have not read or am not sure I have read. Definitely lots of favorites on that list.
What would you add to the list? I would add "Understood Betsy", but I'll bet most of you have never heard of that one. Oh, and "A Girl of the Limberlost". I'm sure I will think of others. I look forward to perusing your suggestions!
