Cool - Books we read as children Books we read as children

I recently re-read some books I read as a child:

Pippi Longstocking, by Astrid Lindgren: I enjoyed it as IMMENSELY this time, as I did when I first read it as a child! Love the attitude of this girl...always did. Nothing gets her down...she lives life like there's no tomorrow, is strong, smart, witty, wealthy, and I love her hair! I relate to her sorrow over losing her father but, unfortunately, wasn't as pragmatic about his death as she was about her father's.

A Necklace of Raindrops, by Joan Aiken: Another story that I clung to for the father figure of the North Wind. I loved this story, and purchased a copy of the book for my personal library.

A House with a Clock in it's Walls, by John Bellairs: For some reason, I thought I had read this book, but when I read it during my surgery recovery, I couldn't remember a bit of it! A great story, nevertheless. I like stories about ghosts, witches, magic, etc.

Now, to get my hot little hands on a copy of The Egypt Game, by Zylpha Keatley Snyder...I want to re-read that, too.

Oh yeah! The Chronicles of Narnia...what was that food...Turkish Delight? I read the first 2-3 as a child, but never finished the set (6 total, I think?). Definitely have to revisit that!

I have a copy of the Wind in the Willows, but I have not yet read that.

Ah yes, The Wind in the Willows. Our mother used to read to in the evenings and I remember that one especially. She was in her comfy chair & we sprawled out on the rug at her feet.

Charlotte's Web, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, The Door in the Wall, Isabel the Itch, Harriet the Spy, and a book for wonderful poems for children by Dorothy Aldis called All Together. Loved The Borrowers, too. Wow, I guess I could go on & on. So many good children's books out there!

Fun thread idea!

Seven books, I really think that's why Harry Potter is going to be a series of seven.

The final book of the series _The Last Battle_ is rather somber, better read as an adult than a kid.

Oh, and Turkish Delight, a soft sugary sweet is just wonderful!

Haha Did anyone read Judy Blumes books on how to become young ladies? I remember the one, Are you there God, it's me Margaret, in which she waited and waited for her period, and finally it came!! Everyone was so excited because Margaret got her period....Perfect to read now when we are all missing poor Aunt Flo so much....NOT!!! Woohoo.....It is funny now....I remember waiting and waiting also. Now I am waiting again....But for a good thing!! Anyone who did not read it really should get it. You will get such a kick out of remembering those days......

Hugs

Oh yeah! Judy Blume. I read most of those growing and maturing books. Loved them!

And when I woke up this morning, I remembered Nancy Drew, as well as The Phantom Tollbooth.

I have never heard of Too Many Sisters. I'm gonna have to check that out. I like re-reading these books...I get funny out of the corner of their eye looks from people on the bus. hahaha...
