Wired.com compiled a list of "67 Books Every Geek Should Read to Their Kids Before Age 10". Find it here: http://m.wired.com/geekdad/2012/03/67-books-for-kids?pid=1185&viewall=true
It's an exceptional list so please check it out! It includes some of my favorites: Half-Magic, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (the best "Dover Reads" book ever!), The Borrowers, Stuart Little, The Railway Children, and A Wrinkle in Time.
What's missing? My all-timefavorite (but little known) "The City Under the Back Steps" by Evelyn Sibley Lampman! Does anyone else remember this one? This book is out-of-print but I'd love to own a copy someday! Which books would you add to this list?
