May Challenge: Back from the Past

The greatest stories are the ones that last and resonate with new generations of readers. While there are differing opinions about which books should be considered classics, books that were written before you were born can carry a certain nostalgia for a different time period. So, use this challenge to explore the past or share books from your childhood with your children. In May, we challenge you to read a book that was published before you were born. Find recommendations for adults, teens, tweens, and children.
