1001 Children’s Books You Must Read…

.Snip20180826_13…Before You Grow Up.

I really love having this book on the shelves and a couple of years ago I started finding the books recommended in this large tome.

I’ve decided to resurrect this project. I will probably jump around a bit as in the first instance I will read those books I can find on line from the library or through the app Libby.  I noticed they had lots of children’s books and that is what reminded me of this book.

I will put up a photo in the sidebar and link it to this page.  It will be something to add on in a LEISURELY fashion as I find the books.  Not being around children anymore (I worked with them for 35 years) I find I miss their books.  This will be a good way to catch Snip20180826_15up.  So here goes….

I live a retired life in Tasmania, Australia. I love books, travel, animals, photography, motor biking and good friends. I indulge in all these activities with the little Travellin' Penguin who has now shared five continents with me. We love book shops, photography walks and time with friends as all our family is in USA and Canada. I enjoy visitors to my blog so hope you'll stop by.

  1. i hope they list “Freddy the Pig” books in there: they were a major part of my life, some 65 years ago… in fact i still like reading about Freddy and Mr. Bean…


    1. Sadly I do not see Freddy the Pig in the book. But neither is the Raggedy Ann series which I loved. I guess the books listed are those that “are good for us”. I looked up Freddy as I’d not heard of him. I would have loved him as a child. Lots of adventures among his animal friends. I see there were 27 of them. They were first published in 1927. The illustrations are wonderful. I am glad I now know about Freddy the Pig.
