Little bookworms can take in some literary history at the Grolier Club, America's oldest bibliophile society. "One Hundred Books Famous in Children's Literature" showcases kid-friendly tomes beloved by readers big and small for generations—from time-honored classics like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Winnie-the-Pooh and Grimm's Fairy Tales to modern favorites like Harry Potter. The collection includes a number of rare books and early or first editions, as well as a Latin schoolbooks dating back to 1658. Tots can page through reading copies of many of the books on display and families can wander through the exhibit, guided by a cell phone audio tour. All ages.
