Animated Classic Children Books

This page has a growing collection of animated classic children books. In other words, you can find videos suitable for very young children, that are based on classic children's books. Most of the videos are hosted on youtube, are short and are of high quality!

Here you can find, Goodnight moon read by Susan Sarandon, or an animated " The very hungry caterpillar" and other works by Eric Carle.

None of the animations shown here were created by me, but rather are just collected from video websites, using the time tested method - did my little girl like them!

I hope you can all enjoy these videos together with your kids! These videos are a great educational tool, and are a great way to spend some time with your children, and get to know new classic books!

Please help this collection grow! If you know of more good animations of childrens books, please send me an e-mail!
