My Childhood Favorites

Occasionally I get a little nostalgic and begin thinking of old TV shows, toys and books that I loved as a child. Well, its one of those times. Here are some books that I remember reading over and over again as a little girl:

Harry the Dirty Dog Board BookTen Apples Up On Top! (Beginner Books(R))And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street (Classic Seuss)

Hop on Pop (Beginner Books(R))Put Me in the Zoo (I can read it all by myself' Beginner Books)In a People House (Bright & Early Books(R))

The Tale of Peter RabbitRichard Scarry's What Do People Do All DayMadeline

And as I got a little older:

BlubberThe OutsidersAre You There God? It's Me, Margaret.

What were some of your "back in the day" favorite books?


  1. I love Harry the Dirty Dog, also - you can hear Betty White read this story at the interactive site from The Screen Actors Guild Foundation

    Personally, I loved the series about Uncle Wiggly that my parents read aloud to me, which you probably never heard of.....because I am 65!
    Thanks for your posts!

  2. I adored Noel Streatfield's Ballet Shoes series and my daughter just read them and loved them too (very girly)!

    Apart from that I was addicted to Enid Blyton's Secret Seven Adventures. Terribly British and now very dated.

  3. Harry is one of my favs as well. Also loved Corduroy and There are Rocks in My Socks said the Fox to the Ox.

  4. Good list! I think there's quite a few of those I remember reading a lot as well. Definitely remember the Richard Scarry books as well. I read a lot of the Judy Blume books as I got older. I also read a ton of Encyclopedia Brown and Choose Your Own Adventure books.

  5. Poky Little Puppy, and The Five Little Peppers and How they Grew, were my two of my favorites.

  6. The Little House on the Prairie series was heartwarming to me.
