Top Ten Tuesday - Childhood Favorites

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting. I really liked the topic this week so here goes:

Top Ten Childhood Favorites –

Some of these are from my childhood and some are from my son’s. Unfortunately,  I didn’t get read to a lot as a child but I did read a lot to my little boy. So the first book on my list is a book that I read to Brandon almost every night when he was little:

1. Love You Forever by Robert N. Munsch – I still get a tear in my eye every time I read this one. It’s about the love of a mother for her son and how that bond comes full circle at the end. Love this book!

2. Sweet Valley High series by Francine Pascal – I had most of the books in this series and even built a special book shelf for them during my woodshop class in Junior High.

3. Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder – Awesome series. Who hasn’t read these or seen the t.v. series?

4. Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews – This book was very controversial because of the incest and child abuse theme but it was still on the bookshelf at my school’s library and everyone was talking about it so I had to read it.

5. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams – A babysitter must have read this one to me. Great story.

6. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss – This was my favorite Dr. Seuss book.

7. The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Anderson – Who didn’t want to be a princess when they were little?

8. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume – I remember talking about this book with friends while I was in 5th grade. Funny read. “I must, I must. I must increase my bust!”

9. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – I devoured all of these books the day that they were each released. I managed to read the first 4 books to my son before he said he was too old for bedtime stories. :'-(

10. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis – I received this awesome book for Christmas the year my son was born. I started reading it to him when he was a toddler. When the movies started coming out he remembered me reading the books to him.


  1. Sweet Valley High was such a popular series. I wonder when publishers will decide to bring it back and publish new versions?!

    Here's my Top Ten!

  2. Excellent choices - we share a few!
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  3. Little House was one of my favorite series as a kid! I also loved Sweet Valley High, Narnia and Harry Potter :)
