People are always looking for recommended children's books that meet specific needs. We could easily list hundreds of titles, but here are just a few dozen favorites that would be great additions to any classroom, library, or home—AND great book gifts. Print this page, mark it up with hearts and stars (or soccer balls and snails), then share your wish list with colleagues, book club friends, and families! Note: we may receive affiliate commissions if you buy books with these links; we use these funds for donations to children in need.
We don't want to overwhelm you (and your shopping cart) with too many recommended children's books at once, so we'll add more to this list each month. Please remember: books are going out of print more quickly than ever before, so if you see titles you like, buy them as book gifts—or send a link to this page to your PTO, principal, or book club friends!
