  1. I think another thing every kid should read would be a book that teaches basic math skills. You know, the kind of books that the people from the telegraph missed, making them think that 1+1=1 (Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, one book in total), or that 7+3=2 (The Chronicles of Narnia Box Set, 7 books, and His Dark Materials Box Set, 3 books, come to two books out of a hundred in total).

    Then again, I’m just nitpicking. Overall their list seems quite good.

    Though I don’t quite agree with their recommended age brackets (Do you really need to be older to appreciate Treasure Island than to understand The Wizard of Earthsea ? What, did they watch the mini-series instead of reading the book?)
