Of course the incredible Dr. Seuss series


 

How can we forget the magical The NeverEnding Story? Ah the good old '80s classics









Elmo & Friends










Ramona Quimby series











A Wrinkle in Time













The Secret Garden











The Wind in the Willows









The Arabian Nights













Little Women












What are your top ten childhood favorites?

  1. Love the Little Women cover. Would definitely be a reason to buy another copy xD And the Dr. Seuss series is one I'll have to read for myself one of these days. I can still be a kid, right? xD

    1. There are way too many editions right??

    2. Yes! And I always want to have them all. Was the same with Alice in Wonderland. And I've never read the second part of it. Despite the four editions I own xD So maybe I should at least read the books first to see if I actually like them, before stocking up on all different editions xD

  3. You and I had a lot of reading overlap! I saw the movie The Neverending Story when I was very young but didn't read the book until I was in high school. I think that I got a really awkward translation from the German as well because I was never quite able to connect with it. My husband is German and we have been planning on doing a partner read of it in German soon.

  5. I have loved all of these (except Arabian Nights, which I hope to read someday soon). I’ve seen Harry Potter on (almost) every list I’ve looked at today.

    Here’s my list: https://readerbuzz.blogspot.com/2017/11/books-children-should-know-great.html

  7. Ah Elmo. I have some Sesame Street books for Merijn, though he is still a tad too young for those right now. Too much text.

    1. My friend reads her baby Elmo all the time and even took her on a Sesame Street cruise lol...

    2. Merijn can't sit still long enough for that much text at his age I meant with the ones we have. ;) We read picture books with animals and the sounds they make and those sort of thing as that is what keeps his attention. The ones we have with Elmo and Sesame Street have a lot more text.
