Publisher Comments:

By selecting only 100 best books Anita Silvey distinguishes her guide from all the 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, well miss them forever: no Hungry Caterpillar, no Winn-Dixie, no Roll of Thunder. As adults we remember a few familiar favorites, but no one but an expert like Anita Silvey, with her thirty-five years at the heart of childrens book publishing, could put together an authoritative list like this one. Parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians, and bookstore clerks will feel completely comfortable recommending these books for any child, from infancy to almost-teens. Silvey includes, in addition to the 100 best, extensive lists of books to meet special needs and interests as well as classics, selected by 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 childrens publishing could tell. 100 Best Books for Children is as much fun to read as it is helpful.

Synopsis:
