Thank you to Elizabeth at Miss Wisabus for hosting this first mini-challenge.
What were some of your favorite children’s books when you were younger? Do you have any new favorites now that you’re an adult? Have you included any children’s or YA titles in your Read-A-Thon stack this year?
James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl has to be on the list. I thought it would be so amazing to find giant insects in my garden and then fly away with them. What an imagination that man had!
The Nancy Drew series was another favorite (along with the Hardy Boys), but I must admit that about a year ago my daughter and I tried to read one and they seem REALLY dated. So, we got the "new" Nancy Drew: Girl Detective books and they have been much more successful in our house.
Judy Blume was also a favorite. Pretty much anything she wrote was a hit with me.
I don't have any children's books on my list to read today, but I have mostly YA.
