Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read (Or nieces and nephews, Godchildren, etc.). I’m not sure I’ll ever have children, but if I do, these are some of the books I’d want them to read.
1. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – This series is one of my childhood (and adulthood) favorites. I will forever love these books, and I want every child and adult to read them.
2. Little Women series by Louisa May Alcott – Another one of my favorite books. I related (and still relate) to Jo so much.
3. Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery – Anne is a spunky orphan who inserts herself into people’s lives with her wit and charm. I loved these books as a preteen/teen.
4. Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder – Book one is set in Wisconsin (yay!), and reading about the old days where things were harder made me appreciate my life more. I think the whole series is great.
5. Ramona Quimby series by Beverly Cleary – I know I read a few of the Ramona books, but not all of them. Regardless, Ramona was pretty hilarious.
6. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff – This book is super cute. I only read a couple others after this in the series, but this one is forever my favorite.
7. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. & John Archambault – I think this one is a great learning book, but it’s also so colorful and fun that it doesn’t feel like learning.
8. Little Critter series by Mercer Mayer – I really enjoyed the Little Critter books. I don’t remember how many I’ve actually read/owned, but it was a decent amount.
9. The Berenstain Bears series by Stan Berenstain & Jan Berenstain – This series is another one of my childhood favorites. I owned quite a few of these picture books, and even some of the chapter books.
10. Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell – Another childhood classic. I had a nice number of these books as well when I was a kid.
Have you read any of the books I listed here? If so, what’d you think of them?
