Welcome to another edition of Top 5 Wednesday. Today’s topic is favorite children’s books. This was hard narrow down because I have so many favorites and I am thinking about doing a post in the future with a more extensive list of my favorites. But without further ado, here are my favorite Children’s books
1. Matilda by Roald Dahl
Ever since I read this in first or second grade this has been my favorite book especially since I felt like I could identify with Matilda in that I loved reading and I also felt like the odd one out at school. I am also planning on rereading it this month.
2. Sleepovers by Jacqueline Wilson
I remember this was the first Jacqueline Wilson book I ever read and I remember my parents had given me this book when I was about 8 when we were getting ready to go on a trip and they wanted me to have something to read on the plane ride. I remember loving this book and I reread it several times and I have no idea what I did with it, but I do want to reread it sometime just for the nostalgia.
3. Anything by Enid Blyton
I read a lot of books by Enid Blyton, probably one of my favorites is The Faraway Tree series. She has a huge collection of novels, some of them are set in boarding school and some of them are fantastical and just really good! Now that I am thinking about it, I really want to pick up one of her books and reread it to see what I think of her writing as an adult.
4. Anything by Dr. Seuss
This list would not be complete without mentioning Dr. Seuss, my parents used to read these books to my brother and I and I loved all of them. I don’t know if I could pick just one book that is my favorite because they are all great!
5. Tales of Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
I remember listening to the audio book several times on road trips when I was 8. I loved this book and all the Fudge books by Judy Blume. And, I know I’ve said this for almost every book on this list, but I want to reread this sometime just to revisit my childhood.
And those are my Top 5 Children’s books, but I know there are a lot more, so there will be a longer list soon!
