50 books every parent should read to their kids.

According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and
 that some quarter of a million children in the UK do not own a single book. This is a terrible 
shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, 
and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with
 parents. So, from the peanut gallery of those who loved being read to (and still wouldn’t say 
no to a bedtime story): 50 books that every parent should read to their child.
 For the purposes of this list, we’re only considering books aimed primarily at children under 10
 (according to the School Library Journal), which means you won’t find outstanding 
children’s chapter books like The HobbitA Wrinkle in Time
Patricia C. Wrede’s Enchanted Forest Chronicles, or C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia
 here, nor will you find mention of your favorite bespectacled wizard — the idea being that these
 are books kids are more likely to read for themselves, without your pesky interference. 
Of course, many parents will want to read these aloud as well, but with any luck, your kids
 will be sneaking the book open and reading ahead long after you’ve gone to bed. We’ve als
limited ourselves, for sanity’s sake, to one book per author. And finally, though these are,
 in Flavorwire’s estimation, 50 books every parent should read to their child,
 they are not the only 50 — so add any personal favorites in the comments!
