50 best childrens books EHprint Print Free File: Download

I’m all about books today people!

I really believe that it is very good to start instilling good reading habits to children by letting them read early in their childhood. I made a list of the 50 best books for children age 0-12 which you can download for free.

For all you mommies whose kids are still super duper little, this is a great starter for you. You can start collecting the books in the list while your kiddos are still crawling. That way, when they get to reach the “reading age”, they’ll appreciate the effort you made in collecting the most well-loved books of all time. And for mommies whose kids range from those who are big enough to read and those too old to read (teehee), it’s never too late to gather these books.

To use this, print the free file onto an A4 size cardboard or vellum board. Use this as a checklist which you can tick mark for the books you've collected. You can make use of the circles beside each book title for the check marks.

I also made matching book plates for all the books you will be collecting.
