    Name 5 children's books that are still relevant and interesting.

    A classic is a book that is considered timeless. Can you think of 5  books that still feel applicable for kids today?

    They are more than five actually, but I'll start with:

    'Journey to the Center of the Earth', 'Captain Nemo' by Jules Verne;

    'David Copperfield', 'Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens;

    'Winnetou' by Carl May;

    and many others. Personally, I prefer Verne as fantast and amazing writer, but there are so many good authors of books for children like Lewiss Carroll, Selma Lagerlöf, A.Alexander Milne, Rafael Sabbatini, Gianni Rodari especially..., Mark Twain.

    Thank you for that question, it somehow brought me to childhood.

    Well, if we're talking books for very young children from the 20th century, I'd go with (in no particular order):

    The Hungry Caterpillar
    Love You Forever
    Where The Wild Things Are
    The Giving Tree
    Goodnight Moon

    There's quite a few more that could be included, the list would be entirely different for another age group, of course.

    There are many many children's books out there!  The ones that come to mind are anything by Shel Silverstein, Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss, Judy Blume, Jules Verne, Jack London, Louisa May Alcott and any of the classics like Tom Sawyer, Huckelberry Finn, Gulliver's Travels, etc.

    There are so many, it's hard to choose 5, but here are some thoughts:

    The Cat in the Hat
    Green Eggs and Ham
    Little House on the Prairie series
    Amelia Bedilia
    Winnie the Pooh, by AA Milne

    I love the way Dr. Suess wrote books with simple words for beginning readers that held their attention.  We use Green Eggs and Ham when my 5 year old says she doesn't like something before she tries it.  Little House is always a classic.  We love to laugh at Amelia Bedelia's antics, and Winnie the Pooh and his friends will never get old.
