22 of the Most Exciting Children's Books of All Time

May the Force be with you! It’s Star Wars day, and in honor of this momentous occasion, I want to direct you to some books that will be as monumental for you to read as Star Wars is for you to watch! Epic adventures don’t just come to life on the screen – there are even richer pastures of imagination beckoning to you from between the covers of classics.

Do you love an exciting read that keeps you on the edge of your seat, delivering new adventures at every corner, propelling you toward new worlds you’ve never even thought to imagine?

Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles!

The Princess Bride

All this, and so much more, are in the books below, waiting to take you to far-off places, introduce you to new worlds, and invite you into empires of imagination!

Parents, the below list is composed of books of high literary value, well-written and full of complex themes; exposure to them will greatly improve the lives of your children by giving them important insights into life, human nature, and guidance for their own futures, and help them to learn to think for themselves. Some of the books require discretion on your part, depending on the maturity of your child. Personally, I recommend them for ages 13 and up.
