Top 10 Books From Babies to Young Readers

As a mom and avid reader I am a firm believer in reading with your children no matter what their age is.

I also believe that books make the perfect gifts for anyone Heedless of their age.

I started reading to my children when they were only few months old. My older son is 12 years old and his thirst for knowledge and love for reading truly warms my heart. I like to think that I have something to do Upon it. Even thou I don’t read for him or with him anymore I will always treasure the moments we spent together crawled up under a blanket and bring transported into a fantasy world that I got to experience through his eyes.

I decided to do a little research and compile Top 10 List of All-Time Best Children Books from babies to Youthful readers. These books will make the perfect gift that keeps on giving for years to come.

Most of these books I enjoyed reading with and for my children and I hope you will enjoy them with your little ones.
