Classics (before 1950)

Some picture books just never seem to age—who would have thought that Peter Rabbit was written 107 years ago?  Here is a list of those classic books that span the generations.  Books our children love, we love , our parents loved and maybe even our grandparents or great-grandparents loved.  If you are unfamiliar with one—pick it up and share it with your children, you won’t be sorry.
