The books on these lists are not a joke. Yes, there are some "big" books on this list, but the point is that you are the one reading them to the child, and not the other way around. The key here is to expose children to beautiful prose and poems, and form a lifelong bond with them at the same time. Not only that, but reading to children helps them acquire literacy naturally.
Make it a habit. Choose a regular time each day to read the books.
