We are all familiar with the powerhouse picture books like Goodnight Moon and Where the Wild Things Are, but there are many other classic picture books which all too frequently get left off “top ten” lists. These are books that I like to call “quiet classics,” picture books which manage to stay in print over the decades and never go out of style.

The Best-Loved Doll (1962). When I was a kid I actually convinced my mom to let me throw a party just like the one in the book.
What about you, what are your favorite lesser-known classics that publishers have actually kept in print? Have you read any of these?
