TeachersFirst - 100 Best Books for Children

Here is a list of one hundred books selected by the National Education Association in 1999 as great reading for children and young people. To help make these books more useful, we have added book and author links to any TeachersFirst resources and lesson ideas.
The list actually only had 97 titles so I added the three at the end from another list on the site to even it out.
