Today is Day 5 of the Armchair BEA and today’s topic is Children’s Literature. I am going to separate this into two sub-categories: Books for little ones and books for older kids- and then again specifically for boys and girls.
To read to little ones, some of my favorites are:
Goodnight Moon, Green Eggs & Ham, The Giving Tree, The Missing Piece,
One thing that I am so happy about, and know they get from me is my kid’s love of reading. As we speak, my son is reading Killing Kennedy, and my daughter is well into The Elite.
For older kids in general-
The entire Harry Potter Series, A Wrinkle in Time, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Hunger Games
For BOYS specifically-
My Father’s Dragon, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Artemis Fowl, Inkheart
For GIRLS specifically
Anne of Green Gable, A Little Princess, Nancy Drew series, Little Women
What books did you love as a child? What will you make sure your kids read?
We do have a lot in common! I completely forgot about THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE. Not really sure how since I read that one at least 3 times when I was younger, too haha. Great list! GOODNIGHT MOON was a big favorite in my house, as well!
Fantastic picks! I’ve read most of the these and loved them. I really enjoyed The Giving Tree but I seriously hated that kid, lol.
Thanks- The Giving Tree makes me cry-and yeah, that kid is a selfish brat
thanks for sharing. my favorite here is Narnia
Love the first six and Anne of Green Gables!
