It’s Friday, and the folks over at Paper Hangover want to know: What are Your Five Favorite Childhood Books? Here are mine:
1. Tom’s Midnight Garden by Phillipa Pearce
I absolutely loved this book as a child. It’s about time travel, a boy/ girl friendship, and a fanciful garden.
2. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
The illustrations are incredible!
3. The Witch Family by Eleanor Estes
I’m reading this tale of a banished Witch to my 6-year-old daughter right now, and it’s every bit as good as I remembered.
4. Snow Treasure by Marie Mcswigan
The story of a brave group of Norwegian children who smuggle gold out of their country on their sleds.
5. The Mitten by Jan Brett
A charming story of a little boy who loses his mitten and the odd group of animals who find shelter in it.
How about you? What are your favorites?
