What’s the No. 1 kids’ book of all time? According to Scholastic Parent & Child, it’s Charlotte’s Web, which edged out the ubiquitous picture-book classic Goodnight Moon. Readers might quibble about certain exclusions, such as Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie and Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat (Green Eggs and Ham is No. 7), but the list is a good reminder of old favorites we may have forgotten over the years, like Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel (No. 10) and The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (No. 12).
