501 MUST-READ CHILDREN’S BOOKS

As much as I would love to complete the entire 501 Must Read Books, my hands are currently full with my TBR pile. But the children’s books included in this list seem to be pretty interesting so I will make it a point to complete the 51 titles. I don’t know how long this would take me until I finish all the 51 books (I am not in a hurry anyway) but it would be fun to see how I can manage to do that, right? Do visit this page from time to time to see how I am faring with this self-imposed reading challenge. I have also provided links to my reviews. πŸ™‚
