Good Reading

“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.” -Louisa May Alcott

While Alice in Wonderland will always be my favorite childhood book, there are so many others that stand out, too. The Betsy-Tacy series is one I read over and over again. Watching Betsy, Tacy and Tib grow up as the series progressed always thrilled me. I was obsessed with Little House books, as well. When the books became a tv show, it was so much fun to see Ma, Pa, Mary and Laura come to life on the screen!

Trixie Belden was another favorite.She was always stumbling into mysteries and I loved her fearlessness, especially since I related more to her best friend, Honey, who was quieter. In fact, I usually played the quiet side kick in real life so it’s not surprise I was drawn to my counterparts in my favorite books. I could never be Nancy Drew, but I was the best Bess, her best friend, that you would find!

The books that I owned were well-worn from being read over and over again. And the ones I borrowed from the library? I would love to find out how many times I checked them out! Books and reading were definitely the highlight of my childhood and I can’t imagine life without them.

This list really is endless! (And it’s supposed to be my favorite childhood book…)

What’s your favorite childhood book(s)?
