What was your favorite book as a child?
As a child my favorite books varied, but I recall The Rainbow Fish, Imogene's Antlers, The Giving Tree, Goodnight Moon, and the Nancy Drew mysteries as I grew a little older. What are some of yours and what memories have sprung from reading those books?
Yes, I enjoyed the Rainbow Fish (as an adult reading to my son!!) but also loved reading as a kid Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped. Very exciting. Also Robinson Crusoe by Defoe and a book by British author Enid Blyton Five Go To Smuggler's Top.
I believe mine was "Slip the Otter Finds a Home". It was an incredibly short picture book about an otter whose family disappears one day. He then goes on a mini adventure, meeting new friends, before he discovers his family at their new and improved home. I still have it, and I hope to share it with my children some day.
When I first learned to read, I loved any of the Little Golden Books my parents bought for me. When I got a little older, I most enjoyed reading the classics such as Black Beauty, Treasure Island, etc. My parents had bought a set of these, all bound the same, and I re and reread them until I was able to start reading the adult level books.
My side of the mountain, Legend of the blue dolphins, boxcar children, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
