A team of literacy experts, mom bloggers and book editors agonized over this question when creating a list of the 100 great books for kids, released this month by Scholastic’s Parent & Child Magazine.
Nick Friedman, editor-in-chief of the magazine, told USA Today that the toughest choice was deciding on a book for that number-one spot.
The prize ultimately went to…drum roll…E.B. White’s classic about a pig named Wilbur who becomes famous with the help of a clever spider and a compassionate farm girl. Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved 1947 bedtime story fell into the number-two slot.
Shocked? Outraged? Do you entirely disagree?
