I have to admit – I have a soft spot for children’s books.

 

I love the way they play with our emotions and invite us to reconnect with our childhood innocence, no matter what our age. I have read hundreds, if not thousands, of books over the course of my life yet these are my Top 10 Best Kids books, including series, described in exactly 10 words. They still stand out for me, no matter how much time passes.
