Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Of My Favorite Books From Childhood


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is about Childhood favorites, which is really fun and I enjoyed very much going through and remembering old books. It was also nice because I was able to add books to a list of ones I want to own eventually. Hope you enjoy!

1. The Phantom Tollbooth – By Norton Juster 

This book is in a slightly older age group than most of the other books on my list, but I saw it on someone else’s list and remembered how much I loved it.


2. Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree by Rolent Barry

My mom bought this book for me a couple of years ago for Christmas and it made me so happy. This book is so cute and about everyone getting a christmas tree.


3. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

Who didn’t love this book growing up? Why? I’m not really sure, it’s so simple but so fun and it resonates with a lot of kids.


4. The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown

A story about a bunny trying to run away from their mom and their mom showing that she will always be there for them. How cute is that?


5. Blueberries For Sal by Robert McCloskey

I loved berries and berry picking as a child, I have a lot of memories of picking berries on my grandparent’s farm, so this book was perfect.


6. Love You Forever by Robert Munch

This book also seems to be a classic for childhoods, it makes me teary even today!


7. Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson.

Imagination and drawing! What more should a book be about? Harold and his crayon were such a fun duo to read about.


8. Corduroy by Don Freeman

This book is one I really should reread because I don’t really remember much about it, only that I loved it and loved the pictures.


9. Strega Nona by Tomie De Paola 

I lied on no. 7. What else should a book be about? FOOD! This book is hilarious and I remember laughing at it a lot.


10. The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton 

A cute but sad little book about a house that watches the world go by. I loved the art style!


What are your favorite childhood books? Did you read any of these? Don’t forget to share your Top Ten post with me! I’d love to read it. 🙂
