Curl up with a classic PDF Print

Several of our favorite classic children's books are celebrating a big anniversary this year. 
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle, James and the Giant Peach, by Roald Dahl, The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster, and The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats are all celebrating 50 years in print!  Check out this list for other great classics titles. And if Winter Reading Club members still need to cover their "watch a movie as a family" space, the first two books are available on DVD.
