Time Out Kids
partnered with the New York Public Library to generate a list of the Top 50 Children's Books of All Time.
In honor of Maurice Sendak — author of the No. 1 book on this list, "Where the Wild Things Are," who died last year
— we are drawing attention back to these lauded works of literature.
The list focuses on the top picks for readers up the age of 12, although some selections, like "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and "A Wrinkle in Time," are bound to satisfy adult audiences as well.
Here is the complete list.
