Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. The Book People
There are certain children's books we all love thanks to their timeless ability to entertain us, to teach us something, or to help us discover a whole new world. Browse our full selection of classic children's books below.
Told through the young eyes of Scout and Jem, Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird is rightly heralded as a classic of modern literature. A black man has been charged with the rape of a white girl and the young children's father, Atticus Finch, is the lawyer tasked with defending him. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is soon pricked by this one man's struggle for justice. These irrational attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 30s are expertly explored with exuberant humour, contributing to a story and characters, such as the neighbour Boo Radley, that are truly unforgettable.
Whether they've been around for decades, tell valuable lessons or simply have characters that have stood the test of time, our classic children's literature titles and collections feature some of the most popular. In our extensive range, you'll find wonderful works from authors such as Enid Blyton, A.A. Milne, Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss. These are the kinds of stories adults will love to read to their children, just as much as the children love to hear them! They make ideal bedtime stories, as well as a great way to encourage your child's imagination.
Classic children's books are great for a range of ages. Younger readers will appreciate titles such as the Little Miss Collection by Roger Hargreaves, while older readers will enjoy getting stuck into J.K.Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
