List of Books

On the back of the The Railway Children book that I read was a list of books. I always like seeing lists of books, especially classics. This book had a good list because the book (and therefore the list) was several decades old.

The series is titled Children’s Illustrated Classics Series and is intended For Younger Readers. This series was published by J.M. Dent in London.

So if you’re searching for what a well-read child should read, here’s a start:
