In my experience, chapter books are indeed books with chapters, but they are intended for kids who are moving on from easy/early readers and not yet ready for middle grade novels, two categories which may also have chapters.

This is also my understanding. The reading age is from 5-8, new readers. Chapter books often, almost always, come in series. My library shelves them separately and alphabetizes them by series title instead of by author (because the author can vary within the series). The Droon books I listed may actually be more middle grade, but the others are classic chapter books as far as I know.

But if you mean classic "books with chapters," like all those mentioned above, then this is a good starting list!

NYPL put out this list, which contains picture books and longer works: https://www.nypl.org/childrens100

What Harold said.  The term "chapter book" is really misleading because lots of books that have chapters aren't considered "chapter books", as Harold points out.
