Children’s Classics

A couple of days ago, I wrote a list of classics. Soon, I realized some were left off. I really forgot to mention children’s classics. It is actually harder to think of children’s classics. What if this time, I only list the children’s classics.

  1. Wrinkle in Time
  2. Harry Potter
  3. Peter Pan
  4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  5. The BFG
  6. Wind in the Willows
  7. The Magic Treehouse
  8. Secret Garden
  9. Anne of Green Gables
  10. Boxcar Children
  11. Percy Jackson
  12. A Christmas Carol- well, I fell in love with this when I was a child (so can count)

About Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, it is hard to know where to put them. Technically they are children’s books, but are they middle grade or YA- the characters age up. I actually think a good way of transitioning to the more YA and adult books is to start with shorter books or read a book similar to one of those.

For instance- Lord of the Rings is an amazing series. It is pretty easy to start on The Hobbit. I really think that Harry Potter fans can transition to Lord of the Rings due to their many similarities. For adult- you can start on A Christmas Carol because it is short, and something you can fall in love with at a young age (which happened to me).

Can you think of other Children’s Classics?

  1. Hey Meg! You did such a great job on this post! I love how you made it short (but not too short) and sweet. It was detailed and that’s what made it interesting. You made it detailed, but moved on to
    the next subject in no time at all! 🙂
