Top Ten Tuesday . . . Ten Favorite Childhood Books

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

My mom taught me to read when I was three, after that I could always be found with a book in my hand, and under my pillow. I was that kid who got in trouble for using a flashlight to read at night.

Here are my ten favorite books from my childhood, in no specific order.

I loved this set from Disney. Each book represented an area of Disneyland and the stories from there. Before I was reading chapter books, these were one of my favorite go to.

My dad gave me this book and taught me how to tell time with it. I can still remember sitting on the family room floor learning time.

Miss Suzy the squirrel was a favored bedtime read. I found out that my cousin, Susie loved it too.

The Three Little Kittens who lost their mittens. I think my gramma gave me this book, not positive. Another book that I read at least once a day.

After I read Ramona the Pest by Beverly Clearly I knew she would become a favored author and I was never disappointed with any of her books!

I loved this book and always dreamed about a cookie tree.

This was the first book I read to my little brother. I'll always remember him asking me to read it to him.

Probably my all time favorite books from my childhood. I'm pretty sure I got all the ideas to pester my little brother from Ramona.

We have family friends who had pigs at the time I read this and I remember wanting to save all of the pigs. I may not like spiders but I am not afraid of them and I attribute that to reading this book.

I will never forget my 5th grade teacher reading this book to us after lunch. I was so glad we were all crying together at the end.
I can still see my daughter, Kassi, coming into my room bawling at the end of the book.
I believe books that evoke emotion like that have a special place in our heart.

Are any of your favorite childhood books listed in my top ten? Let me know if they are in the comments and your favorite childhood books.
