Teacher's Top 100 Books for Children

The National Education Association (NEA) has come out with a list Teacher's Top 100 Books for Children (2007). You can click here to go to the full list of 100 titles. The top five books are:

1. Charlotte's Web by E. B. White
2. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
3. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
4. Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
5. Good Night Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

Your child's favorite not on the list? Stop by the 2nd floor and check out the display put together to highlight these 100 books and have your child fill out a slip that says "My name is ______ and my favorite book is _________!" We'll add it to our display so they can point out the slip that has their name on it the next time they come to the library, as well as find out what other kids like. If I were to fill one out it would say "My name is Cheryl and my favorite book is The Westing Game! What would yours say?


  1. My name is Liz and my favorite book is Anne of Green Gables.

  2. My name is Clare and my favorite children's book is Shakespeare's Secret by Elise Broach.
