There are so many books crowding the kid section of the local bookstore and library (also, let’s be real, Amazon) that it’s nearly impossible for parents to figure out what they should be reading to their children. What are the absolute best books for babies? Toddlers? Kids? Tweens? Teens? It’s complicated. The new stuff isn’t necessarily better than the old stuff, but not all the old stuff ages well. That’s why Fatherly‘s editors have done the hard work of reading all the books in order to present the absolute best of the best.
