We‘re collecting recommendations from parents for the classic children's chapter books their kids have truly loved.

These books are "classics" for a reason - they have stood the test of time and are still enjoyable and relevant to our kids today. Many have won awards for literary achievements, and all have resonated with kids across generations.

Each book's suggested reading level is noted below, but keep in mind that these make great read-aloud books for a wider variety of ages. Consider picking one up to read along with your child!
