1. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott---I'm pretty sure I read the abridged version first time around.
2. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame---this title has popped back into my consciousness this past month. I don't think I ever read it very carefully.
3. Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift--- like Little Women I am fairy sure I read the abridged version of this classic.
4. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett---my memory of this story is so vague I think it will be more like reading this book for the first time.
5. The Borrowers by Mary Norton---I read this series to my daughters, magical!
6. The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis---a family favorite. We've read and reread it several times.
7. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls---I love this book. I have reread it in adulthood but want to reread it again.
8. Old Yeller by Fred Gipson--- even though I don't remember the exact plot I know it involves a dog and I cried a lot when I read it as a child.
9. The Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle---oh, I loved this book as a kid. It was truly the first book I loved. When I reread it with my children it seemed to have slipped. I think I need another reread to give it another shot.
10. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain---I was busy reading abridged versions of books as a kid and I loved Huck Finn when I read it as an adult. It is time to reread this classic, too.
