As most of you know I have been working on Amazon's 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime. I have not finished this list, yet I continue to make progress towards it. This year I decided to add Amazon's 100 Children's Books to Read in a Lifetime. You can find my progress at any point by clicking under Reading Lists and Challenges. Like I have done in the past I will continue to post my progress on this page as well. My goal is to post an update for every five books I finish.
I am excited by adding this list in this year. I do not read a lot of children's books anymore, and I think this will be a great way to review ones I have read in the past. I am also amazed by how many I have not read previously. If you have young children this is a good way to find new books to read with your kids.
I think there is merit to be found in reading children's books for the sake of expanding your own reading world. Writing a children's book that is engaging, easily read, and does not talk down to the audience is extremely hard. I have already found some books that I have enjoyed, and some others that I would not label among my favorites. I am excited to discover more.
