Reviews for 100 Children's Books: that inspire our world

'It's also a great suggestion of books and extracts which would be worth using in the classroom; I want children in my class to see how brilliant some older texts can also be... This is an ideal book for any lover of children's books and literature.' * Teacher Bookworm blog * 'This is a lovely keepsake for book lovers who can look back on the stories that shaped their childhoods (and adulthood!). It is also a nice gift for children who can discover some new books, or learn about the authors who wrote some of their favourites.' * Picture Book Perfect blog *
