Some Favorite Children’s Books

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

My friend Mrs. Darling from Dishpan Dribble recently posted a recommended reading list for children at her site. Inspired by her effort, I went back through the records of some of the books the children read when they were little. This is a greatly abridged list of the most cherished books, and doesn’t include much of the nonfiction that they read. Were some of these books your children’s favorites as well?:


Adler, David

The Cam Jansen series

Alcott, Louisa May

Little Women (and other books)

Alexander, Lloyd

Time Cat (and other books)

Arnosky, Jim

Crinkleroot’s Book of Animal Tracking
