There's an excellent list of books that have been compiled for kids at this link. It's a good mix of books that everyone should read and covers a variety of ages. Some of my favorites they list are Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Goodnight Moon, A Wrinkle in Time, Coraline, and The Golden Compass. I didn't see a book on the entire list that I did think "I forgot how much I liked that book!"
What is this?
This is a place for me, Ms. Tice, to recommend books for you to read. Sometimes it's books I've read and enjoyed. Sometimes it's books I've heard about other people enjoying. Some of the books you'll find in my class library, some the school library, some the public library, and some you may have to go out and buy.

3 stars - enjoyable, but I've read better
4 stars - I enjoyed it and I think others will too
5 stars - I loved it and will be rereading it again soon
