Many of the books listed here are early childhood classics. Nearly every item listed on this list is either a staple of preschool or early grades like K-2 at the elementary level. Who can forget classics like Where the Wild Things Are, Corduroy and The Cat in the Hat? That being, who didn't have Goodnight Moon read to them before they went to bed as a toddler? The one common bond between these books, despite their author, subject matter and main character, is that these books are some of the most reliable for parents and will always elicit a small grin from people who remember the stories from growing up.
