What is your favorite childhood book?
I’m making a list of books mentioned here – I wasn’t a reader as a child. I’m trying to make up for that now.
All of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books.
All of the Secret Seven books, also The Chronicles of Narnia and Paddington Bear
Black Beauty and Little Women.
Five go to Demon’s Rocks by Enid Blyton
I wanted to be Harriet the Spy!
Roald Dahl the twits and Charlottes Web and Secret Seven
Milly Molly Mandy!
The Wind in the willows
Loved Milly Molly Mandy, had forgotten that!
I’ve put some Milly Molly Mandy stories on my Kindle for my granddaughter. Not quite the same as the lovely old books.
I live in the U.S. And MMM is unheard of here. I found a boxed set at a charity shop for 50p on a recent trip home. Can’t wait to reread!
Amelia Bedelia. lol Seriously, one of my favs….too many to just name one! Wind in the Willows and had a copy of the original Pippy Longstocking. 😀
Champion Dog Prince Tom since it inspired me, as all good children’s books do. I could relate to having to overcome odds to do what you love so i think i must have cried ten times while reading it.
