Must Have Books for Children's bookshelves

As I have stated before I have been in the book business a long time. That being said I forget sometimes, as do other people who work in books, that not everyone in the world is as immersed in children's literature as us. The general public sometimes needs a reminder of the titles that every child should have in their library. So the following list is for new parents or grandparents or even friends who wish to give a child a strong base on which to grow.

These are listed in no particular order:

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt
Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you See? by Bill Martin Jr Illus by Eric Carle
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Curious George by H.A. Ray
Where's Spot? by Eric Hill
The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper
Moo Baa La La La by Sandra Boynton
Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown

Now there are more classics out there and anything by these authors are good. But this is a good start to any children's library.

I will save the new favorites for another day!
