50 of the Best Kids’ Books Published in the Last 25 Years

50 of the Best Kids’ Books Published in the Last 25 Years

A recent list was compiled by Reach Out and Read and Goodreads of the 50 best children’s books in the last 25 years.

Of the list, my top 5 favorites are, but in no particular order:

What shouldn’t have made the list? Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister  Sorry – it is one of my least favorite books!  The illustrations are beautiful, and I know the message is meant to be positive, but it bothers me that Rainbow Fish only gave his fins away for, in my opinion, selfish reason.

Now, drum roll please ….. my top 5 picks that should have made the list but didn’t, but in no particular order.  (Again, this is for books published in the last 25 years.)

If you haven’t read any of these, you need to check them out!
