Young Readers

Posted by: on August 2nd, 2012

I took my 3 year-old to the library recently and while she loved playing “let’s see how many books I can take off the shelves so I can keep my mom on her toes,” I spotted a few books that I loved as a kid and a few I’ve never read and still want to. I actually squealed when I spotted the first book on the list. I completely forgot about it, but as soon as I saw it, I put that one in my library book pile.

 

Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka: Young Readers

1. Amelia Bedelia – Peggy Parish
I absolutely loved this book when I was a kid and was first learning how to read. More than anything, the book gives me warm fuzzies because it brings me back to my childhood, but it’s also a really great book for the young ones just starting to read.

2. Ramona The Pest – Beverly Cleary
This was another one of my favorites; I think I read every Ramona book that’s ever been published. I remember wanting to be Ramona and live in her world with an older sister that I could pester. Too bad for me, I was the oldest in my family (lol).

3. Charlotte’s Web – E.B. White
Are you sitting down? Are you sure? I’ve actually never read this book, but I just got it and it’s on my reading list. I don’t know how it’s even possible that I could’ve skipped this book when I was younger, but I promise you, dear Flicksters, I will get on it very soon.

4. Little House On The Prairie – Laura Ingalls Wilder
I have LOVED Little House On The Prairie since I was a little kid. The show is still one of my all time favorites and I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to enjoy this book series. I was so caught up in it that I would actually dress up in pioneer garb and skip outside around the house with my dress and bonnet. You’re right, that explains a lot about me. What? It’s not like I do that now… at least not as often.

5. Matilda - Roald Dahl
Oh, how I adore this book. So much so that words can’t describe just how wonderful it is. It’s so full of imagination and holds a very special place in my heart. I think this is certainly a book that you can enjoy at any age.
