what books did you love to read as a child/teenager?

December 6, 2012

We’ve made it to the final theme of the year, “Love2read”.

This week we’re asking you for your childhood memories – what books did you love to read as a child/teenager?

How many times did you read these books over and over again? Have you suggested them to children or even your own kids? What is it about your favourite book that struck a chord with you and made it special? Perhaps you discovered your favourite children’s book as an adult and wished you had read it as a child. List below the titles and authors you loved to share with the community and take a trip down memory lane. WARNING: may cause nostalgia!

Here are some of our favourites to get you thinking. Will they make your favourites list?
Winnie the Pooh
Possum Magic
Spot series
The Balloon Tree
Don’t Pat The Wombat!
Mr Men series
I Hate Fridays!
Tomorrow When The War Began
Anne of Green Gables
Deltora Quest series
Snugglepot & Cuddlepie
The Julia Tapes
Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late!

Share your favourites by telling us about them in the blog comments.

Remember, this is not the end of your reading journey, you will love2read for the rest of your life!
