Book Finds

I found a new (to me) used bookstore and was so excited about finding all these classic books to add to my collection! :)

Classic Kids Book List That EVERY Child Needs: List Five

This is part four in the series as the book lists I have to share are VERY long. Keep checking in for new lists. Some of these books you may or may not recognize from your own childhood. One thing I love about book lists is being reminded of good books I may have forgotten about. Time to rekindle some pleasant memories and make new ones with our children today.

Here is the next book list:

Series Books:

Geronimo Stilton series books (47 in the series)
Black Lagoon (picture book) series by Mike Thaler
If you Give a Moose a Muffin series by Laura Numeroff, illustrated by Felicia Bond
Hank the Cowdog Series
Encyclopedia Brown series by Donald J. Sobol
The ValueTale Series by Spencer Johnson (writer) and Ann Donegan Johnson and illustrated by Stephen Pileggi (43 books in all)
Mary Poppins series by P. L. Travers
Angelina Ballerina book series

Good Reading:

Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster
Project Apollo Mission to The Moon Charles Coombs
Welcome to No Man's Valley, Laura McCarley
Way Down Deep Strange Ocean Creatures by Patricia Brennan Demuth

Good Reading for Younger Kids:

Seven Little Rabbits by John E. Becker
Katy No-Pocket by Emmy Payne and H. A. Rey
The Random House Book of Stories from the Ballet by Geraldine McCaughrean
Felix Feels Better by Rosemary Wells
A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert L. Stevenson (Goldenbooks series)
The Amazing Bone (Reading Rainbow Books) by William Steig

David Wiesner who is known as the wordless author.

And just for fun, here is a YouTube video about the author of Mary Poppins:

TJED is based on Classically based books and mentoring. Start buying and reading the suggested books and see which ones will work for you and your family library. For those who missed where I got these book lists, I received from a good friend who is well versed in classic books for kids and has a house filled with bookshelves full of classic books for children. Several afternoons she had me come and copy down the titles so I could start my collection. Thank you, Linda! I've also been finding titles on my own that we are adding to our collection.

Happy reading, everyone!
