With so many exciting, new titles published each year, it’s common for teachers to debate the relevance of the classics to today’s students. Are these books still relevant? Do they represent our world as it looks today? 

Answers to these questions are mixed—and hardly definitive. But with many classics topping this list of Teachers’ Top 100 Books for Children from the National Education Association, it’s clear that quite a few of these titles still have a place in today’s classrooms.
