Best Books for Kids

The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Product Image

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

I read the first three books a number of years ago (I stopped after that) and I loved them all. Neither of the sequel books were as fun to read as this one was, though. I guess it was especially wondrous the first time around.

2 Green Eggs and Ham Green Eggs and Ham Product Image

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

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.

This was my childhood!

3 A Series of Unfortunate Events A Series of Unfortunate Events Product Image

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 The Outsiders  Product Image

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!

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

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

5 The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Product Image

Amazing book. The details are fantastic.

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

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

This needs to be 1, fans vote now!

6 The Hunger Games The Hunger Games Product Image

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.

May the odds be ever in your favour.


7 Charlotte's Web Charlotte's Web Product Image

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

8 Tale of Despereaux Tale of Despereaux  Product Image

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

9 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Product Image

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

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

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

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

10 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Diary of a Wimpy Kid Product Image

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.

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

It deserves to be in the top 10

The Contenders

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