Description - 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up by Julia Eccleshare

This is the perfect introduction to the very best books of children's fiction: those books that have a special place in the heart of every reader. It introduces a wonderfully rich world of literature to parents and their children, offering both new titles and much-loved classics that many generations have read and enjoyed. From wordless picture books and simple, illustrated storybooks through to hard-hitting and edgy teenage fiction, the titles featured in this book reflect the wealth of children's fiction available today. There are national and international classics as well as works by the most well-known, successful, and 'literary' contemporary writers for each age group. Organised broadly by age group - 0 to 3, 3+, 5+, 8+, and teenage fiction - 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up is an ideal reference for parents keen to introduce their children to the wonderful world of books, and for all adults to revisit the favourite books of their own childhood.
Illustrated with original cover art where possible, each chapter presents the books in order of publication to give a sense of the rich tradition of children's fiction and illustration, from Aesop's Fables to Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book.
