25 Must-Read Classics For Your Kiddos!

By Isabella Sorresso

It’s a time to sit down with your favorite novel or crack open a new read and remember why reading is so important. For our kiddos, it’s a way to become strong readers and understand the world around them as they begin to navigate it themselves. For us, it’s a way to escape the normalcy of everyday life, appreciate the arts and pry us away from our constant screen-time, even if only for a few minutes! If you’re not sure what to read this month, we’ve created a list of must-read classics for each age group so we can all read together!
