Not Too Old for Children's Books

On Thursday my book group is meeting and I'm super excited because we are discussing children's books. Instead of reading one book though, we each get to share a passage from a favorite children's book and then our fearless leader, Miriam, will put together a list of all of them for us to add to our reading list.

Good Grief, how to pick just one?!

I've written before about my love of the not-for-adults genre...here and here. I think that my parents raised me first and books raised me a close second. I wanted to be brave and good like Sarah Crewe, and I desperately wanted to be worthy to visit Narnia. And the magic that saved Mary Lennox in The Secret Garden, man alive, I believe in that kind of magic!

So tell me, what are some of your favorites? The children's classics? Fantasy? Newer titles like The Hunger Games? ALL OF THE ABOVE!

This is the time to leave a comment people! It can be your good deed for the day. Share your wealth of experience so we can all get cracking on your recommendation. 

Mmmmm-mmmm, I love recommendations.

  1. Some favorites from my childhood are Bridge to Terebithia and Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry. I remember reading both of them and crying and realizing how powerful words/written stories can be.

  2. I loved Bridge to Terebithia also but I've never read Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry. I think Jonathan has it because he read it for school. I'll have to look in his room! Thanks for the recommendation; the power of stories to change us is such a wonderful part of being human.
