The Ultimate List: Our 100 best children's books
We celebrated Children's Book Week with Amazon Kindle by announcing our list of 100 books every child should read before they're 14.
Drawing from over 90 years' experience of recommending children’s books, our experts put together a list of the 100 best children's books for Children's Book Week 2013.
We asked everyone to join the debate and vote online for their favourites from the list - with the nation’s top books announced on 25 November.
The exciting 100 combines an eclectic mix of traditional classics and modern greats that we believe are must-reads to fire children’s imaginations and turn them into lifelong readers. The cut-off age of 14 was chosen as beyond that, children tend to progress to more adult literature.
Take a look at the books on our list:
- Best books for 0-5 year olds
- Best books for 6-8 year olds
- Best books for 9-11 year olds
- Best books for 12-14 year olds and beyond
