Older Books for Modern Children: About 500 Books For A Home Library
Many other book lists are available on the net and in the public library. This list draws from older books I read as a child or have shared with children over the years, ones that an adventurous child reader might still enjoy today. Missing are some books, like Toinette's Philip, that a modern child would find too stereotypical, though they are beautifully written. Included are acknowledged classics, but also personal favorites that are not well known, like Pinky Finds a Home.
