Top Ten Tuesday: Some favorite books from my childhood
Note: I had few books and rarely was taken to the library as a child, so some of the books I've listed were read in adolescence when I started using the school library.
This was my first book. In fact I may have been given it at birth since it was published in 1957, the year I was born. *Yes, I know. I'm old!
I remember this book in the little book shelf in my bedroom, a lonely book by itself. But I read it all the time.
My younger sister was given this book written by the author of the Winnie-the-Pooh books when she was six. I was five years older than her, so reading it aloud was one of my jobs. I remember loving it so much and wishing I had the book when I was six.
I loved this series of silly books playing on turn-of-phrases in English. I loved them when my children were little, too.
I was always a little frustrated by the messes that the cat made in the home of the children whose mother wasn't home. But the book still provokes warm memories.
I don't remember if I read this book or if my mother read it to me, but I was quite captivated by the tiny people living in such close proximity to regular-sized people. When I children were little their grandmother gave them the whole series. I don't think I got rid of them, but I cannot find them, which makes me feel sad.
My best friend's mother gave me this book as a gift. It is such a sweet story by the author who is much more famous for her Ramona books, which I don't remember reading as a kid.
I read somewhere that this is best-loved children's book ever written. I loved it, too.
I read this book as a 6th grader and LOVED it. I think I made it into every book report or school project for a year or two after reading it.
I was blown away by this series when I first read it as a preteen. I've since read it three or four times in entirety.
I'm pretty sure this book was read to us in school. I loved it then and still do.
