So for today’s post for the letter “C,” I’d like to bring up the topic of children’s books. Also I thought it was interesting that so many children’s books classics were included in Day 2′s list of banned books.
I have a seven year old right now and she loves reading. We read together before bed time and lately she’s taken up the habit of reading more after I tuck her in. Right now she’s into “Harry Potter” (speaking of banned books) and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”
I’d read the Harry Potter series when they came out and re-reading them has been a lot of fun. Some other books my daughter has enjoyed are the “Junie B. Jones” books by Barbara Park and “The Magic Treehouse” series by Mary Pope Osborne. Some other authors she likes are Jan Brett and Shel Silverstein and of course Dr. Seuss.
It’s been a lot of fun to rediscover some of my favorites as a kid and see what new books and authors are out for children now.
What were some of your favs as a kid? If you read children’s books now (whether you have kids or not ) what are some of the ones you or your kids like?
