What is childhood without stories? -Sarah Jio, Goodnight June

We know that an early passion for books sets children up for a lifelong love of reading, which is why we love creating book lists for kids. Below you’ll find children’s books listed by topic and genre, and within each list the books are organized by reading level.

If you are looking for ways to engage young readers, we invite you to check out our Kids’ Read Around the World Challenge. You’ll find even more resources for raising readers here.
