Lynn is hosting a mini-challenge. She’s asking us to list five of our favorite childrens books.It’s hard to pick five, but here’s my quick list.

  1. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ( I just re-read this and loved it.)
  2. The Berenstain Bears and the Spooky Old Tree (Fun story and great pictures.)
  3. Cat in the Hat (It’s a classic and I think I can still recite a lot of it.)
  4. Bunnicula (I had forgotten most of it until I read it again with my daughter. Great book.)
  5. The first Magic Tree House. I forgot the title, something about dinosaurs. (First book in a series that is fun and teaches you some history.)

I re-read all these with my daughter and they were just as good as I had remembered.


  • Thanks so much for playing along! I loved Berenstain Bears books when younger, and I love reading my son The Cat in the Hat (although I don’t like that the kids are left home alone and let a stranger in 😉 ). WAY TO GO making it so far in the Read-a-thon!

  • I’m so happy for you! I loved loved loved The Chronicles of Narnia – until I re-read them. I wish I hadn’t, they lost some of the magic that captured me as a tween. so, really! I’m glad they stayed true for you! I do love the movies, tho.
    Happy Read-a-Thon!
