100 Books For Children: Part 3

Unknown, ParentcircleParentCircle

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Your children will thank you for introducing them to the world of Percy Jackson. By the time, your children are done reading ‘The Lightning Thief’ (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1), they will be asking for the next instalments. The books feature exciting plot twists, interesting characters, Greek Gods and various monsters.

All children must read the classics. Start them with ‘Treasure Island’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. Here is a comment on this book from goodreads.com: “The most popular pirate story ever written in English, featuring one of literature’s most beloved ‘bad guys’, Treasure Island has been happily devoured by several generations of boys and girls—and grownups.”

Spook them with the quirky ‘Coraline’ by Neil Gaiman. From goodreads.com, ‘Gaiman has delivered a wonderfully chilling novel, subtle yet intense on many levels. The line between pleasant and horrible is often blurred until what's what becomes suddenly clear, and like Coraline, we resist leaving this strange world until we're hooked.’ For more creepy tales, there is the fascinating ‘Voices in the Park’.

Make sure to introduce your little ones to classic fairy tales like ‘Cinderella’—the story of a sad girl who finds happiness. Also, introduce your children to light-hearted reads like ‘The Jolly Postman, or Other People’s Letters’.
