Phillip Edwards Please feel free to add any of the books listed above which, hopefully, is all 1,001 of them.

1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up by Julia Eccleshare [image error]

message 8: by Linda (last edited Nov 30, 2009 09:50AM) (new)

Linda Okay, I guess I don't understand what can be considered a children's book; I mean Catcher in the Rye and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time? I guess YA falls in this category, in which case I think "Children's Books" is a little misleading.

message 9: by Travis (new)

Travis 'To read before you grow up'?
As someone who plans on never growing up I guess I've got plenty of time to get through the list.

Though, I've got to agree that 'Catcher' doesn't strike me as a 'before you grow up' book.
I think we have an overly vague title to this list.

message 10: by Angela (new)

Angela Randall Hi all,

I've finally made the kids 1001 book list in Goodreads:

Which also means you can use this url to view if you prefer: http://www.goodreads.com/shelf/search...

Plus, I've made all the sub-lists.

Kids 0-3 Years: http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...

Kids 3+ Years: http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...

Kids 5+ Years: http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...

Kids 8+ Years: http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...

Kids 12+ Years: http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/...

I've done my best to find English versions, but if I couldn't prove an English version existed I have listed the original language. With all this hunting around I may have messed up at some point, too. Let me know!

Hope this makes it easier for other people to find the books - It certainly is an interesting list of books!


message 11: by Angela (new)

Angela Randall PS @Phillip - Thanks for writing the list out with all the correct accents. It really helped to find things. :)


message 12: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards You're welcome Angela. :¬)

As for the title - there certainly are some young adult novels on the list which no-one would describe as being for 'children' so they probably should have just called it "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up" - but the list title needs to match the book, so there it is.

message 13: by Ali (new)


message 14: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards Hi Ali, I've added Where The Wild Things Are. If there are any others from the list you want to add and vote for just search for them in the box up near the top left corner - the one marked "find/add books to list".

message 15: by Phillip (last edited Aug 10, 2010 04:29PM) (new)

Phillip Edwards Sigh. Obviously 1,001 books isn't enough for some people. The Hunger Games, The Egypt Game, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and all of those books by Bill Peet are not valid choices.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I can remove them if you like.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Grr. I just voted for 97! and it is only saying I've voted for three. Grr.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Note: "The Return of the Twelves" is the U.S. title of The Twelve and the Genii.

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Is Hillerman's "Blessing Way" really on the original list? And, for that matter, "Asterix"?

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Asterix the Gaul is. I think Blessing Way is not.

message 21: by Shahryar (new)

Shahryar I noticed the "1001" book lists "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens" written in 1906 and then goes on to describe the plot of "Peter and Wendy" written in 1911. "Peter and Wendy" is really good. Just know that if you search out a copy of the listed book it isn't actually the book they intended to list as one of the 1001.

I read the Egypt Game when I was a child! I was maybe 9 or 10, got it from the Troll book order at my Catholic school. My daughter has been reading it off and on over the past year or so which surprised me because she LOVES anything Egyptian.

message 23: by Briar Rose (last edited Mar 24, 2012 03:35PM) (new)

Briar Rose Thank you for putting this up. I love this list. I've read about a hundred of these books, but now I'm going to start a reading challenge and see if I can read a hundred more!

message 24: by Michael (new)

Michael Mcleod This is a delightful list to browse through and vote on. I agree with a comment below, however, that some of these books (such as Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies) are not children's books.

message 25: by Cherene (new)

Cherene The list goes to 12+. Which I assume means around the 12-17 range. Both Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, Catcher in the Rye, etc. are all common HS required English novels. Also, a great way to introduce some very sensitive subjects to teenagers.

message 26: by Fjóla (new)

Fjóla I am pretty sure that books by GoodReads author James McDonald, were not included in Julia Eccleshare's volume. This author seems to be spamming every possible list with his two books, Rainy Day Poems and Through the Milky Way on a PB&J, using fictitious accounts. They are now at the top of every other best-books-ever Listopia list ...

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Thanks for the hint -- spam removed.

While I'm at it, does anybody see anything else that doesn't belong here, either?

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Ha ... trust Susanna to find the duds even if they're buried on the back pages!

Removed as well.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Can't find all of them, but I keep looking.

message 31: by Shubham (new)

Shubham Bhargava Where is Asterix

message 32: by Cherene (new)

Cherene Asterix the Gaul is 146 on this list. Or, 540 - 8+ - under the original list.

message 33: by Cherene (new)

Cherene I'm reading this as my son ages. We've read 61 of them so far, but he just turned 5, so that means we're 161 books behind. I guess we'll start reading 2 books a night for a while.

I just had a daughter though. Now what? Ha.

message 34: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited May 16, 2013 03:39PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Have my doubts about:

#328: Dragon Howl, by Vanessa Rouse
#225: Albion Imperilled, by Ruth Thomas
Chemistry: The Atom and Elements, by April Chloe Terrazas
#224: Declan Grows Up: It's Just Not Fair, by C. Austin Lee
Page 4: several works by David Jacks
#186: Goblinheart, by Brett Axel

message 35: by Fjóla (new)

Fjóla All of the above seem to be recent books by GoodReads authors, which by default would make them suspicious to me. Author C. Austin Lee is probably self promoting by putting his books on every imaginable listopia list, although not in the same outrageous manner as the before mentioned James McDonald and his sock puppets. I find this practice really annoying. I go to GoodReads for recommendations, but it takes research to figure out that the ratings of a book that's at the top of "Best books for toddlers", "Best books for five year old girls who love sparkles" and "Best books for 12 year olds about wizards" and everything in between, all at the same time, doesn't have much credibility. I understand that authors love their books, but voting 50 times for your own book as the Most-Amazing_Picture_Book_of_the_Century doesn't make it one. Why don't they let people read it first ...

message 36: by Fjóla (new)

Fjóla I took a look at the last two pages of the list, and I'm sure more than half the books there are not from 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. For instance, Enid Blyton's and Tove Jansson's books have been added in mass. They are both great authors, but they only had two ore three volumes each on the 1001 list.

53. The Lightening Thief - not on list.
60. Lord of the Rings Trilogy - only the Fellowship and the Hobbit are on the list and both of them are already on there.
74. Ella Enchanted - not on the list.
78. The House at Pooh Corner - not on the list, only the first collection is.
89. Alice's Adventure in Wonderland and Through the looking Glass - this IS on the list, they just have both books separately and then this one together. So I figured you might want to remove the duplicate.
90. Fantastic Mr.Fox - not on the list.
97. Mr.Piggle Wiggle - not on the list.
100. The Real Mother Goose - not on the list

Ellinor I've now done a very thorough cleanup of this list. I think I removed about half the books on it...
It helped a lot that I'm actively reading the books from the list so I was familiar with lots of the titles.
I'll keep an eye here from now on to not let such a mess up happen again...

Laura great job Ellinor

message 47: by Ellinor (new)

Ellinor Thank you!

message 48: by Ellinor (new)

Ellinor I also added a few more books from the list. Let's hope this will stop people a bit from adding random ones... There are still more than half of the books from the original list left.

message 49: by Phillip (new)

Phillip Edwards Thanks Ellinor, keeping a list this size in order is an heroic undertaking. Too much so for me I'm afraid!

Oh wow, Ellinor, I'm thoroughly impressed!! I know what even a single page's worth of cleanup involves ...
