Charlotte’s Web tops best kids’ book list:

Charlotte's Web, EB White's classic novel about a farmyard spider and her pig pal, has topped a new list of the 100 Greatest Books for Kids.
Date: February 17 2012
Editor Rating:

Scholastic Parent & Child magazine ranks the 60-year-old book at number one, ahead of Margaret Wise Brown's popular picture book Goodnight Moon.

JK Rowling's Harry Potter debut, The Sorcerer's Stone, which represents the hit seven-book series, is sixth on the list.

Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham also makes the top 10 at seven.

Suzanne Collins' bestseller The Hunger Games, which is currently being turned into a summer blockbuster, was 33rd on the list.

JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and the Twilight series of books were deemed too adult for the list.

Charlott’s Web is a children’ classic, isn’t it.  But be aware!  I read it to Little Miss Four when I was pregnant and she dissolved into a flood of tears.  It took quite a bit of convincing that I wouldn’t die after giving birth to baby (as a natural course) as spiders do, and Charlotte did after having her young.
