Do you mean the books we read or a book that depicts our childhood?
I thought she meant the latter of your two, but maybe it is either/or.

Wishin and Hopin… wally lamb. raised in parochial school myself and aunts and uncles who were in the religious life…. that book hit the nail on the head a few times. delightful!!
Little House On the Prairie. I didn’t live on a prairie, but my best friend was one of 9 children who lived on a farm 8 miles from town. I spent several weekends there, earning my breakfast by mending fences and hauling wood in the dead of winter before the sun even rose. Food (fresh homemade bread and churned butter) never tasted so good. Her dad taught me to ride a horse — he cursed at me just like I was one of his own. . . And I learned, quickly. They kneeled and prayed the rosary every evening after dinner and when the sun set, we sat around a campfire listening to the elk bugle. I loved it there. My friend hated it and escaped to what she felt was more exciting, sleeping over my house in town, right across from a park and pool where they hosted night ‘teen swims’, basketball tournaments, and within walking distance of Youth Center Dances. She envied me. I envied her. She and every one of her siblings now live in towns and cities. Needless to say, I now live in the country.
Angela’s Ashes. I went to Catholic school and the confession chapter makes me LOL every time I read it 😉
Being a late bloomer I have just begun swimming in the ocean of literature.Sorry,I can’t answer your question immediately.Perhaps after six months I can deal with it somewhat satisfactorily.ok?

The first I read was Matilda. Loved it so much that I re-read it over and over. Other than that my fav is The Witches. Have you read it?
@Venus yep. I’m pretty sure I’ve read all of his books. I’m a teacher and have wanted to be one since my third grade teacher read to us The BFG. I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory so many times that my copy (this little red one) had its pages falling out. He is THE best! I’m actually thinking about doing my classroom this year in a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme ?.
That would be awesome! I would have loved to have such a creative teacher ! What grade do you teach?
I’ve taught 4th the past few years but I’m heading back to 3rd next year!
