Many of the suggested 1001 books weren't available in Vancouver public library because they were out of print, too obscure in another language or never heard of. Others only available because they were in other (eg. DVD) format.
A bit of bother trying to look up the books & authors in amazon.com or abebooks.com.

This is a wonderful book full of suggestions for children and teens to read. It is divided by ages (0-3; 3+; 5+; 8+; 12+) and provides recommendations of books by both well-known authors as well as those from a variety of countries that one may otherwise not know of. Each book receives a full page listing which includes a brief summary of the book as well as information about the author and illustrator's nationalities, awards and honours the book has received, themes the books relates to, alternate titles (if applicable) and a listing of the publisher. Some titles also include recommendations of other similar books that may be of interest. The book has a nice layout and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for great books for their children and teens to read. This is a great resource for parents, teachers and homeschoolers alike.
