thursday 13

This week: 13 favorite children’s books.

(Note: Oddly, I didn’t read a lot of these until I was in high school or college. What can you say?)

1. The Chronicles of Narnia.

2. The Little House On the Prairie books.

3. Winnie-the-Pooh and The House on Pooh Corner.

4. A Wrinkle in Time.

5. From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.

6. There’s a Monster at the End of This Book! (Yes, the old-school Sesame Street one with Grover…it’s around here somewhere.)

7. A classic: Where the Sidewalk Ends.

8. Hope for the Flowers, by Trina Paulus–it’s an allegorical story about butterflies, if that tells you anything. It’s lovely.

9. Okay, I was going to try to get through this without mentioning it, but I just can’t: the Harry Potter series.

10. The Hobbit (that counts as a kid’s book, right?).

11. Apples, Snakes, and Bellyaches (book of poetry).

12. Sideways Stories from Wayside School (does anyone else remember these?)

13. Shiloh (yes, the one about the beagle).

One thought on “thursday 13

  1. I love A Wrinkle in Time!

    I actually read that and another one by her this summer. It was exciting, but I was on the kids’ side of the library and people thought that was odd.
