November 14: Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read (Or nieces and nephews, Godchildren, etc.)

I’m going big here. Top Ten Books Children Should Read.

1.Matilda; Roald Dahl. Everyone needs a little rebellion, a little love, and a little understanding that families aren’t perfect.

2. Harold and the Purple Crayon; Crockett Johnson. Have to encourage imagination.

3. The Story of Ferdinand; Munro Leaf. Be yourself.

4. A Wrinkle in Time; Madeline L’Engle. A big part of a lot of childhoods.

5. Ella Enchanted; Gail Levine. Sometimes you have the strength in you all along.

6. Harry Potter; J.K. Rowling. You know I had to.

7. Holes; Louis Sachar. You get what you give.

8. Where the Sidewalk Ends; Shel Silverstein. Where silly meet serious is a great place to be.

9. Mus of Kerbridge; Paul Kidd. This was my favorite book for a lot of my childhood. I read my copy to pieces.

10. Charlotte’s Web; E.B. White. Learning about loss is tough, but this book has some good things to say.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    Great choices, ALL! I’m making notes for my grandson, in the hopes he will be a reader who loves books as much as I do. 🙂

  2. I’ve been hearing so much about A Wrinkle in Ti me and really, really need to start it
