Top 10 children's books

Asking an adult what their favourite book was as a child is almost like asking that same person, now a parent, which of their children they like best. It's incredibly hard to choose.

We selected our Top 10 books based on which ones are still going strong today -- but that doesn't mean this list is the be all and end all. Agree, disagree and send us your picks. But most of all, share them with your kids. As Dr. Seuss wrote in I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!: "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go."
