The Top Ten Best Books for Kids

1 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I'd say I like the Order of the Phoenix the most then Prisoner of Azkaban.

I am not voting because I like Harry Potter, but am voting for my favorite book, "Number the Stars." This is one of the best books you will ever read. If you haven't heard of it, just read it, and you will fall in love with the book,

Well the prisoner of azkaban is actually best bey never mind

Probably the worst book in the series, but it is still AWESOME!

2 Green Eggs and Ham

Every kid should read this book at least once, it's great! - Ajkloth

Yes, it's a very great story, everyone should know this!

If you grew up having never read this (or any Dr. Seuss book) you missed out. Always a fun time reading these. - BKAllmighty

This was my childhood!

3 A Series of Unfortunate Events

Absolutely, utterly not! Series of Unfortunate Events was one of the worst books I've ever come across! My entire class LOVE it, and force it down my throat.

I hate Mr. Snicket's (that's not even his name) writing style...constantly interrupting the natural flow of the story with his horrible narrating and explaining 'big words (note the sarcasm).' News flash: I knew what ALL of them meant. I mean, it worked for the Book Thief, but not this.

I liked the premise. Orphanened children, completely miserable, find out about their creepy uncle who attempts to marry the oldest to get their fortune - now that's my kind of story! But, alas, Snicket ruined that as well. What could have been a wonderful book was turned into a bland, overrated, piece of mindless garbage that belongs nowhere near my perfect, award-winning belongs in the trash can right next to it (who puts a trash can by a bookshelf?).

What I hated most of all, though, were the characters. ...more

This book series is amazing! It teaches the meaning of some vocabulary words, and gives very good clarification and examples of it. This should be number one!

This series is amazing! But these books can start sounding very sad, but these books are amazing!

Just right it has great twists end just when you think it's all good bam! Something crazy happens Klaus is a boss

4 The Outsiders

I LOVE this book! My science teacher read it to my class and I LOVE IT! Pony, Dally, and Johnny are AWESOME!

This is a little bit more of a young adult book, but it IS amazing for kids who feel like they aren't challenged when it comes to books!

Read this in public school. First book I ever HAD to read that I enjoyed. - BKAllmighty

5 The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

It's magical in every sense of the word. I loved this book as a kid. - BKAllmighty

A fantastic book written by a fantastic author. This is my 2nd favorite book.

Amazing book. The details are fantastic. - MontyPython

This needs to be 1, fans vote now!

6 The Hunger Games

Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are NOT "Kids Books" While Harry Potter is suitable for audiences 7+ and The Hunger Games is appropriet enough for teens 12/11+ They aren't "kid's books" But definitely for adults and teens too! They are for all ages as long as the kids don't get scared or disturbed

I graduated high school before this entered the curriculum so I just read it for fun and I was pleasantly surprised. Then out came the movie. - BKAllmighty

May the odds be ever in your favour.


7 Charlotte's Web

I have read this book so many times I remember what happens at what time. This book is such a great children’s novel.

It literally should be first place! The movie, and the book are really touching especially at the end! Shows true friendship!

It great for kids

I remember reading this in school - trains45

8 Tale of Despereaux

Don't hate me, but I thought this sucked, the movie was even worse.

9 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

This book is sad but it's an incredible read. - Starsparks

What kid would want to read this book? This book is sad! - funnyuser

Want a tear-jerker? You got one in this book. - BKAllmighty

I want to read this book, but I don't want to break my heart. - RoseWeasley

10 Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Should definitely be top ten harry potter should be at the bottom

An awesome book that is funny, realistic, sad, and these books express feelings of one another because my child became obedient after reading this. BEST BOOK SERIES EVER

Good book, but I think Harry Potter is better.

It deserves to be in the top 10

The Contenders

11 The BFG

A good combination of dark (evil giants that eat you, ) and happy (a magical dream giving giant) aspects, my favorite childhood book.

It great it has so many details so if you closed your eyes you could imagine it

This book is one of my favorites! Well done roald!

One of my favourite Roald Dahl books - WinchesterGirl26

12 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

I have read the whole book in a day and I'm a 10 year old

29 Warrior Cats

This deserves to be higher than DOAWK. I like DOAWK but WC is a lot better. DOAWK is good for a laugh but doesn't really have morals. - RoseWeasley


I love warriors! Rose I’ve seen you before... I’ve literally look at all the warrior things on this website! I would make a warrior top 10 but my mom won’t let me 😢 anyway I love warriors and it should be higher on the list! If you don’t know what warriors is, it is basically about cats who live in Clans and there, um, adventures? I don't know it’s hard to describe.. just read it yourself! -Frostfeather of SwimClan

30 The Ugly Truth

The paper tastes yum its like toilet paper rubbed on the toilet seat that's so scrumptious

31 Hatchet

This was definitely a great book about a brave young boy!
While others would have not done anything but starved and died, this boy showed he had the will to survive! - kyaracalderon

WORST BOOK OF ALL TIME! I would NOT let your kids read this. It's just DEPRESSING!

32 The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily
33 The Hobbit

The best book

34 Officer Buckle & Gloria
35 The City of Ember

Amazing and adventurous story...

36 Horton Hears a Who!
