BBC ran a poll with 1000 adults to choose the "Best Children's Book Of All Time."
J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series beat the likes of Roald Dahl and Harper Lee.
Harry Potter is the book most adults say every child should read, according to a new BBC poll. A thousand adults in the United Kingdom were given a choice of ten classic books chosen by recommendations from the British public, with J.K. Rowling's magical saga coming out on top. Roald Dahl's The BFG came second and To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee was third. But what makes a good children's book and why are they important? Professor Kimberley Reynolds is a specialist in Children's Literature Studies from the University of Newcastle in the north of England. She told Dan Damon about the first book she ever read.
