" A perfect book to highlight perfect books! So much here to celebrate with classic reads and some surprising new ones making the cut. Each book has its own page and is wonderfully described in almost an Infographic form. I am going to put this one on my Christmas list! " said.

" Fantastic and full of ideas! It's always fun to see what others favorite reads are. How many have you read?* This is a book that I look forward to sharing with both adults and young readers in my life. *I have read 2/3 of them, looks like I have some catching to do. " said.

" What a wonderful book!! I love the fun illustrations and the organized layout of this book. The book is more for younger readers but in my opinion I think it would be great for older readers aswell. This would defineitly appeal to older reads in that it has a kind of sentimental nostalgia with all the books read when your a child. This is also great for young reader to discover books they can read and after they read a book they are able to write down what they thought about it. Another great idea this book offers is that after reading a book it gives you suggestions of books to read next.
101 Books to Read Before You Grow Up will take you to colorful path to treasured memories for older youngsters and to fun discoveries for the young.
As you might see by my review I adore this book.

"Copy provided by the publisher

In this brightly colored book, heavily illustrated by Shaw Nielsen, 101 classic and newer books are highlighted. Each book has basic information about suggested age range for readers, genre, publisher, publication date and page count, a fun "Did you know" fact about the book or author, a brief description of the plot, as well as some read alike recommendations. At the bottom of the page there is a space for the reader to rate the book and enter some brief notes.

Any list of "must read" books (including the famous SLJ one) will have some contentious titles, which will differ from reader to reader. This is a solid list, which covers a variety of standard recommended titles, with a few wild cards (the author is Australian) thrown in.

This would be a perfect gift for the young bookworm in your life, and would also make future gift giving easy if one copied the table of contents and provided the books included for birthdays and holidays. It also is a handy desk reference for teachers who want to have descriptions of books available to share with students.

My only real objection is that the suggested ages seem more in line with what I would expect of very gifted readers rather than the general population. (The Phantom Tollbooth and Harry Potter at 8 and The Hobbit at 9? A bit of a stretch. My children read these books at those ages and struggled a bit with them. I think Harry Potter is best kept until the reader is the same age as Harry.) Also, it seemed odd to have random illustrations instead of the original book covers and interior illustrations, but there are no doubt copyright issues with including those.

" Excellent resource, I'm surprised how many I haven't read. I'll need to get cracking on this list. " said.

" Good choices, and a fabulous set of graphics for the illustrations. " said.

" cute and informative. we saved many of these books on good reads so that my daughter and I can go back and read some of the ones that sounded best. lots of nostalgia for me. :) " said.

" A great resource to help recommend books to young readers; it also introduces them to reading book reviews as a way to choose books. I'll keep this handy! " said.
