Top Ten Tuesday #5




Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.  It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists!  Check out what others have posted by going over there!



This week is a freebie, and I wasn’t sure what to do.  There are so many great ideas out there, but I decided to something a little more personal. As summer approaches, my kids-two teens- are starting to make plans-lots of which does not involve their Dad or I.  I am starting to long for those summer days when it was just us handing together, so I picked this topic for my freebie-




  •  1. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown- “goodnight nobody….



2.  How Do Dinosaurs Say goodnight? by Jane Yolen


3.  The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein


still can make me teary eyed…

4.  Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuess


5.  Put Me In The Zoo by Robert Lopshire


6.  Moo Baa LALALA by Sandra Boynton

(first book my son ate)


7.  Caps For Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina

(a fav from when I was a kid)


8.  The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein


9.  Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst

(every kid has these kinds of days-adults too)


and of course…

10.  Fox in Sox by Dr. Seuess


“When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles
and the bottle’s on a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles…
…they call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle
bottle paddle battle.”
― Dr. SeussFox in Socks

  1. I adored ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’, ‘The Giving Tree’, and ‘Goodnight Moon’ when I was little! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my TTT list!

  2. What a good topic! It’s funny, my mother will often mention a book she read to me all the time when I was little, but I have no memory of almost any of them. I need her to make a list like this!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. I can relate. My daughter is headed off to college in the fall — almost across the country. It’s going to be very strange to have her so far away, especially since I homeschooled her from 8th grade on. I work from home; the house is going to seem very empty. And I will miss reading to her — something I still do whenever we both have the time, though of course now it’s usually adult or YA books.

    We loved Goodnight Moon and Caps for Sale, too. We had several of the others, but weren’t as fond of them. I remember reading a lot of Sesame Street and Winnie the Pooh books. Oh, and Mr. Putter and Tabby (I still love those!)

  4. I love all of these books and have read most of them to my small children (2 & 5). I’m already getting nervous about when they won’t need me anymore. My eldest doesn’t even need me to hug him goodbye at preschool anymore, though I do anyway!
