It Makes Me Cry Every Time!

Now, now, some of you were a bit overeager on the last Listmania! post, Best Books for Younger Children. Here I present my final book list. I would say that these range anywhere from 3rd grade up to high school, but each child is different in reading skill and comprehension, so it is tough to say when they should pick up a particular book.

Many of these books are Newberry Award Winners, but I was quite surprised to find that some of the most beloved books did not win the award and were in fact honorable mentions.  I was also surprised to find myself getting a little misty-eyed at the memory of some of these books. Here they are, in no particular order:

Black Beauty
Ella Enchanted
James and the Giant Peach
Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales
Ramona (series)
The Little Prince
The Secret Garden
The Chronicles of Narnia
My Side of the Mountain (series)
Harry Potter (series)
The New Way Things Work
Harriet the Spy
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
Little Women
The Little Princess
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The Black Cauldron
The Call of the Wild and White Fang
Tuck Everlasting
Bridge to Terabithia
A Series of Unfortunate Events (series)
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass
The Giver
Little House on the Prairie (series)
Anne of Green Gables (series)
Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret
The Phantom Tollbooth
A Wrinkle in Time
The Wind in the Willows
Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
Charlotte’s Web
Because of Winn-Dixie
The Hobbit
A Light in the Attic
To Kill a Mockingbird
His Dark Materials (series)

Anything else?
