This is another installment of The Broke and Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday. Today we are sharing ten books we want our children (or future children) to read.
Most of the books below are listed because I enjoyed them so much as a child that I want my children to have the same experience.
Little Critter by Mercer Mayer
Both of my parents would read these stories to me as a child. I think my favorite was Little Critter’s These Are My Pets. I even had the treasury to read from as I got older. Little Critter has such a wide variety of experiences, it’s fantastic.
Time Stops for No Mouse by Michael Hoeye
Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix
This is another book that I loooved as a child. It’s about a girl who thinks she is living in the 1840s, but soon finds out that she lives in modern day. Because the people who run the 1840s society won’t hand out medicine, she must embark on a journey to save them from diphtheria.
Holes by Louis Sachar
The BFG by Roald Dahl
Most of Roald Dahl’s stories are magical. This is no exception.
Another great story.
This is a great picture book series about someone named Amelia Bedelia who takes everything literally. For example, when playing baseball, if someone yells “Go home!”, she’ll run to her house instead of home base.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr., John Archambault, and Lois Ehlert
Skit skat skoodle-doot, flip flop flee! I’ll race you to the top of the coconut tree!
