Ten timeless children's classics

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Joel Cunningham tagged ten timeless classics that belong in every child’s library, including:
Good Dog, Carl, by Alexandra Day

At just 29 years, Carl is by far the youngest entry on this list (though in dog years, he’s practically ancient). Still, it’s impossible to imagine this nearly wordless story of a gentle Rottweiler, a baby girl, and a wildly, possibly criminally inattentive mother won’t endure. Plus, because there is no text, you get to figure out how to explain in your own words that, though the baby survived a drop down the laundry chute with no apparent injuries, it probably isn’t a good idea to try it out.
Read about another entry on the list.
