Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Childhood Favourites. I think lots of us will be reminiscing about the stories we were introduced to as children. All of these books hold a special place in my heart.
A Little Princess
I adored this charming riches to rags tale. The film adaptation is brilliant too!
Fantastic Mr Fox
This is my favourite book by Roald Dahl.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit
Peter Rabbit is adorable! Beatrix Potter was a wonderful writer and illustrator.
Grimms’ Fairy Tales
I loved reading this beautifully illustrated collection of Grimms’ Fairy Tales.
The Baby-Sitters Club series
Ah, The Baby-Sitters Club takes me back! My favourite character was Dawn.
Paddington and the Knickerbocker Rainbow
I still have my copy of this colourful picture book featuring Paddington Bear.
Harry Potter series
I had to include Harry Potter on this list! I read the books as a child and teenager, so it felt like I was growing up with Harry, Ron and Hermione.
I first read Little Women at the age of eleven alongside my year 5 English class and have loved it ever since.
Black Beauty is a heartfelt story and a must-read for animal lovers.
I remember my first-year teacher reading this book to our class as we sat cross-legged on the floor. Charlotte’s Web gave me all the feels!
What are your favourite childhood books? Do we share any of them? Let me know in the comments and feel free to link your Top Ten Tuesday post!
