Children’s Books in the Amazon Top 100

Sometimes I wonder: How many children’s books are among the top 100 bestsellers on Amazon? And which books are they?

I investigated and discovered a very mixed bag of classics, independently published surprises, the occasional YA, and a lot of sentimental bears.

This list is constantly changing, and you can see the influence of the upcoming Father’s Day in a number of the books.
