What is your favorite childhood/young adult book that you can still enjoy rereading as an adult?
I just got an annotated version of 'The Phantom Tollbooth' by Norton Juster, illustrations by Jules Feiffer. I read it when I was young and I look forward to reading it as an adult now. What book did you enjoy as a young reader that allows itself to be reread as an adult?
The very first book in the Harry Potter series. I find that as an adult I am catching things I didn't when I first read the book at 10-years-old. The language is so rich and the book still manages to enrapture me.
'Little Women' by Louisa May Alcott. I first read this book when was seven, and I have probably read it at least ten times since then, the last time several years ago. I would gladly read it again tomorrow. Each and every time I have enjoyed it in a completely new way.
Mine would have to be Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.
Definitely the Harry Potter series and The Hobbit. I think The Hobbit is read more by adults than kids but I'm pretty sure it was intended as a children's book.
Honestly, there are so many that I find it hard to choose!
I re-discovered reading YA when my dd was a high level reader looking for appropriate material; and fell in love again. I still like the Anne series, and then there was a series called "In Grandma's Attic" that I was surprised to enjoy as much as I did when I was younger. We enjoyed reading Heidi and The Secret Garden together.
And there are some I'd never read that I wish I'd found. Betsy and Tacy, All of a Kind Family, the books by E Nesbit and the Half magic series...
I do appreciate them on a different level as an adult.
When I was little I absolutely loved the Beverly Cleary books. I'd probably still reread Ramona Quimby at this age and enjoy it
"There's a Boy in the Girls Bathroom" and The Wayside School series by Louis Sachar. All of his kids books are great and I still go back and read them every now and then.
My favourite childhood books are the books written by Enid Blyton that i still enjoy re-reading even now! These books are full of life and whenever i re-read them, i feel like a child again! Re-reading these books brought back cherished memories of my childhood.
Comic books and the Bible. They are both great. One is fictional and the other is truth.
I will admit, I still love reading the old Nancy Drew Mysteries.

What is your favorite childhood meal that you still loveFor my dad it's PB&J and for my uncle it's Spaghetti Oh's because that's what their mother used to make for them when they got home from school. They still eat them at least once a day! Are they the only ones?
