Children's Top 100 Books

The National Education Association published a Children's Top 100 Book List as part of its Read Across America celebration.

J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series was the big winner. The Goosebumps series by R. L. Stine came in second, followed by Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs and Ham" and "The Cat in the Hat." Rounding out the top 10 were the Arthur series by Marc Brown, E. B. White's "Charlotte's Web," the Shiloh trilogy by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, "Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen, "Holes" by Louis Sachar, and "The Giver" by Lois Lowry.

"Asking children to vote for their favorite books taught us all some lessons," said NEA President Bob Chase. "First, kids love being asked what they like to read. And second, their choices are far more eclectic than we would ever imagine."




The list of top 100 includes seven Newbery Award winners, two Caldecott Award winners, six Dr. Seuss titles, and three books by E. B. White.

The NEA survey, which was conducted online on the Read Across America web site from November 1, 1999 through February 1, 2000, asked students to give their names, ages, schools, cities, states, gender and their five favorite books. More than 1,800 students from 39 states, Puerto Rico, and Department of Defense schools submitted over 8,100 titles.
