Sarah You know how children have those favourite books that they read over and over? Which were yours?

I loved Cat in the hat, and all the Dr. Suess books. And there was this Irish book my great aunt got me called Starting School, which I like knew off by heart. I can't think of anymore right now but I just lioved loads of books when I was little. Haha :)

I was kinda a weirdo. I read Robinson Crusoe in the 4th or 5th grade xD
It mostly consisted of the Magic Tree House series by Mary Osbourne. Freaking loved those. Then my 5th grade teacher broke it me that the books were too young for me.
I was heartbroken.
Until I found Harry Potter.
Then I had an obsession for awhile, until I had some sense slapped into me.
Literally.


Eternal Werecat | 141 comments 0_0 I read Robinson Crusoe in the third grade. Heck I read Magic tree house when I was in middle school, my sis would check them out and I would borrow them and finish them before she would. Babysitter's club, Saddle Club, Animal Ark, Thoroughbred I loved and still love, they're my guilty pleasure.

When I was 8-10 I liked Harry Potter, Books by Eva Ibotson, The Hobbit, Books by Geraldine McCaughrean


message 25: by Pirl (new)

Pirl (pirlismyname) I loved Cat in the Hat, and in fact got it for my second birthday from my (then) 18 year old sister, but my mother, for reason unknown to the rest of the family, dislikes Dr Suess in intensely. I was basically a fan of any book they gave me, LOL.
When I was in about second grade, I discovered a series about a magic tree house, a few series in Hebrew, and a few series translated from English whose names I can't remember. All of them fit to fifth graders, mostly, but I was always mature for my age, and by the time I was in forth grade, I had outgrown them by far. That's when I discovered Harry Potter, and I am, till now, obsessed. I also discovered around then my favorite Israeli writer. Sixth grade was already Percy Jackson and Twilight, which opened the door to the fantasy and Paranormals I love so much now.

message 27: by Haidi (new)

Haidi I used to read all of Enid Blytons books and as I got older got into the Famous 5 and Secret 7.

But my favourite book and I still love reading it now to my kids is called
I had trouble in Getting to solla sollew. By Dr Seuss

I also read books called Clan Ground and Ratha's Creature by Clara Bell. I only recently discovered she has written 3 or 4 more in the series, so I intend to read them one day even tho I read the first 2 like 20 years ago.

message 36: by Amy (new)

Amy (amy_bookworm) | 504 comments The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Dr Suess, The Hungry Caterpillar & (yes...) Paddington Bear, I think there were books on Bob The Builder (who I loved). I had this book where it was Winnie The Pooh & it had buttons to press to hear tunes when the lyrics to different Winnie The Pooh songs came on. But they were all when I was very tiny.
