Favorite Books From Childhood

cmcThe past six months I have thoroughly enjoyed reading favorite books from my childhood. When I first decided to join this challenge I knew I had hundreds of books to choose from. I decided to choose those books that really stuck in my head and in my heart.I read these books as a child, I read them to my children and now they are still excellent choices for my grandchildren. 

Here is my list:

  1. Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McCloskey 
  2. Blueberries For Sal by Robert McCloskey  
  3. The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner 
  4. The Railway Children b y Edith Nesbit
  5. Homer Price by Robert McCloskey
  6. On The Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder  
  7. Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski   
  8.  Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White  
  9. Heidi by Johanna Spyri   
  10. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

  • You’ve provided an excellent list to inspire meaningful reading. I’ve only read 3 of these! Maybe I should have joined the challenge :)

  • Congratulations on finishing the challenge!

  • What a great list of books! I really have to do that myself too. Good books really do stay timeless, don’t they!

  • I’ve really enjoyed re-visiting the books through your reviews. Congrats on finishing.

  • I know the story of The Railway Children but have never read it! It was on TV when I was little and I loved it. Heidi and Little Women are my favourites, but then I’ve not read any of the othr books you’ve listed.

    Now you’ve got me thinking about other books I liked when I was a child – the Katy books spring to mind.

    I read so much as a child I dont know if I could come up with ten FAVORITE I sure did like the spring valley high series. But the long winter sticks in my brain…That WAS a long winter and a very memoriable one too.

  • That’s a great list. Well done and thank you for reminding me of a couple that I had completely forgotten!
