Top Ten Childhood Favorites
(in no particular order)
2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
This is another book that I re-read over and over as a child. Sadly, when I read it as an adult it didn't quite mean the same to me. I still love it though and I treasure my well worn hardbound copy!
3. The Velveteen Rabbit
by Margery Williams Bianco
Ohmygoodness... this book... still makes me cry! One of my earliest memories of reading is when I read this with my mother. It's a wonderful story. I dare anyone that loved a stuffed animal as a child to read it and not cry!
4. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
This was another absolute favorite of mine. I think this book had a huge part in me growing up to be a tree hugger. Really!
5. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
This book is such a classic. I really want to re-read it! I think I've read every book ever written by Hinton... they are all so, so good.
6. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
Oh, how I loved this story as a kid... I was really sad when I tried to re-read it a few years ago and couldn't get into it. Really sad.
7. The Babysitters Club Series by Ann M. Martin
This was the first series I ever became addicted to!
8. Are You There God? It's me, Margaret
by Judy Blume
This was one of my favorites, but really, I loved anything by Judy Blume - Superfudge, Blubber...
9. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
10. The Boxcar Children
by Gertrude Chandler Warner
I don't really remember much about this book except that they lived in a boxcar that I could imagine completely. After reading this I'd look at anything and try and imagine it as a home to live in :).
It was fun making this list... Sharing these books brought back a lot of good memories! What were some of your childhood favorites?
