Top Ten "Classic" Acts.....

Here are the top ten classic children's books for you to pick up and enjoy:

1. The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett

2. The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

3. Grimmes Fairy Tales - Collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

4. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl

5.The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien

6. The Winnie-The-Pooh Stories - A.A. Milne

7. Peter Pan - J.M. Barrie

8. The Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame

9. Alice in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll

10. The Harry Potter Series - J.K. Rowling

Many of these classics have been made into movies by Hollywood. Be sure to always read the book to your child before you present them with the movie. Movies should always be the follow-up. You will find that your child's imagination is much more creative and personal than some director in Hollywood can portray the plot/characters etc. I often find that I am disappointed with a movie because I had envisioned the story so much more differently than the vision and images that were portrayed on the big screen. Make picking up and reading some of these fantastic books a priority in your home for the next year or so. You will find your child's reading abilities and experiences of reading good, sound stories translate into vocabulary expansion and the ability to express him/herself in a more creative written form. These books will enrich and enhance your child's literature journey.
