100 Books Every Kid Should Read By Age 14

The British reading and writing charity Booktrust has released an “ultimate list” of the 100 children’s books every kid should read by the time he’s 14. It’s a pretty good breakdown of key reading material for anyone who is growing up.

It also differs considerably from The New York Public Library’s new list of 100 greatest children’s books, which was released late last month and faced considerable controversy over “missing” titles.

Here are the top 100 kids’ books, according to Booktrust:

The New York Public Library’s list includes a few notable books not chose by Booktrust, including “Bridge to Terabithia“; “Curious George“; “Goodnight Moon“; “Jumanji“; and “A Wrinkle in Time.”
