    This is a great list! Thanks for the ideas for my four boys! :)

    I’ve read 52, and a few more on are on my list. (And I should confess I’m a children’s librarian in a public library, a relatively rare guy among that breed.) This is a good list for recommendations, though a little light on picture books and shorter books for younger and beginning readers.

  14. someone random says:

    Go Artemis Fowl! Although they all are amazing, my favorite is the Opal Deception.

  15. 8-point buck says:

    27! boom!

  16. pedro on a tuesday says:

    They should have put Hunger Games (series) because there are 3 books in the series. I prefer the third, Mockingjay.

  17. harry potter man says:

    harry potter ROCKS!!!!!! best series ever, it should totaly be on the list!!!!

  18. Chuck Norris says:

    the Kane series by Rick Riordan should also be on there.

  19. Diamond Chopper says:

    27. Sad to see so little Sci-Fi on the list. Almost anything from Robert Heinlein could pass the muster.

  21. EJB says:

    What about Ender’s Game?

  22. CubmasterJake says:

    Must add: “If I Built a Car” by Chris van Dusen; “Ox Cart Man” by Donald Hall; “Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel” by Virginia Lee Burton; “Three Days on a River in a Red Canoe” by Vera B. Williams; “The Berenstain Bears go to Camp” by Stan and Jan Berenstain; and most shockingly absent Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book”!

  23. Harry Potter says:

    Harry potter series rocks!!!

  24. jackaroo says:

  27. Hotrod says:
