1001 Children's Books Project

This is the list from 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. For myself, I'm most interested in reading the books from the older age categories (8+ and 12+) which include plenty of titles "grown-ups" would also enjoy. But I'm also loving the younger books that I can now read with my son. The world of children's books is just fascinating!

I first created this page in 2013, but now I have a little guy to read to, I thought I'd revisit it and revise my tracking method. I will only mark read titles in boldface if I am definitely sure I have read them -- when I was younger, as an adult on my own, or read to my son. So many wonderful books to explore for the first time or rediscover with my little reading companion :) I won't review all of these, but will link up any of those I do.

I got this full list from the official 1001 Before You Die series website where they also have all their other lists posted if you want to check them out. I have a copy of the book as well which provides a lot of great information and a review for each recommended title. Though some I've read are a little spoiler-y, so read with caution!

  1. Love this idea. I've been a voracious reader since early childhood and used to set target goals of how many books I would read on a Saturday instead of playing outside.

    I dipped back into children's books during my time studying how to write for kids at Vermont college many decades later.

    Have fun!

    1. Thanks Vikk! I really do love children's lit and there are so many great classics in this genre -- I miss those days of reading as a kid :)

  2. I plan on reading all 1001 before I turn 17, which is in 5 years. So far I've read 137 (including HP and Twilight)!

  3. Scratch that, 194!

  4. This is the best idea!! I'm constantly trying to get my kids to read (and, though they really enjoy it, they enjoy video games, too!). I'll be referring back to this list frequently!
