Favourite Childhood Book. - January 21st 2017, 01:28 AM

What was your favourite childhood book? When I mean childhood I'm referring to under 10.

Mine was the baby sitter club books

I was in fourth grade when I read Harry Potter, I think. So I believe I would have been nine. But, aside from that, Beauty by Bill Wallace. Such a great book and it's the first one to ever make me cry.

The Goose that Almost Got Cooked was my favorite. I made my dad read it to me just about every night

My absolute favorite book when I was really little was Mike and the Magic Cookies, my favorite series when I was a little older (still under 10) was A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.

That's an impossible question. I loved the Harry Potter series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, books by Enid Blyton, Pamela Cox, Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, Ronald Dahl, Dear Canada series. I loved to read anything I could get my hands on but I guess my favourite would have to be Harry Potter.

The Giver was my favorite book (still is). As was Gathering Blue and Messenger. Although the last book, Son, wasn't published until 2012 it was still my favorite series.

I ended up reading the first book when I was in 1st or 2nd grade (so 6 or 7 age wise) because one of my brothers had to read it in school and I always went through their backpacks to see if they had anything good.

Oh my favourite books were a collection of Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, Paul Jennings, Geronimo Stilton books, and the Mr McGee books. Out of those it was more specifically the Faraway tree series, Malory Towers series, Famous Five, and Secret Seven to name just a few. I read a lot as a kid.

When I was really young I loved anything by Enid Blyton. My grandad used to read me Mr Meddles Muddles or something, I loved it!

Secret seven, Malory Towers, St. Clares, Famous Five... almost all Enid Blyton books. I also read Black beauty, the adventures of Tom Sawyer and the adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I also loved reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. Too hard to name all

When I was young and learning to read, my babysitter and I would read the Junie B. Jones books by Barbra Park.

Re: Favourite Childhood Book. - January 26th 2017, 11:24 PM

I love this thread and definitely thought of starting one at some point but I forgot. Anyway, I didn't read all that much as a child sadly and because I had so much trouble with it but my uncle used to read to me and my sisters "Mother Mother I feel sick. Send me to the doctor quick quick quick"
The summer before high school I read harry potter 1-5 and then beginning of grade 9 I read 6 and 7. I then had a "reading growth spurt"
I read Nancy drew-thry were kinda too similar but there were a few in the series that stood out and I'm blanking on the name. It may have been the clue of the tapping heel.
I love how the leopards got its spots
The tiger came to dinner
Shel Silverstrin's children poetry book "Where the sidewalk ends"
Dr. Seuss oh the places youll go. I love the waiting place part. The picture shows a really long line of people waiting for the bathroom and i used to find that brilliant.
Goodnight Moon <3
All about Birthdays. Whenever I was sick in bed I would ask my sisters to read stories to me and they'd somehow always read the birthday book then.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Is my favorite thing to eat don't know the literal title but in my special reading class the teacher let us take home a book that came with a cassette of someone reading it out loud and when you hear the "clink" sound you turn the page and there was that one book about peanut butter that had me on the floor laughing.
The giver was pretty good
So was roll of thunder hear my cry
Those two books were assigned in school but I liked them a lot. Also the last unicorn, I read in college in my children's lit class and that was the first time I read it but still a children's book

I read Junie B Jones! I love her name! That reminds me, I liked Amelia Bedilia xD Diary of a whimpy kid was also pretty funny
And the mixed up files of franklin we baiseweiler taught me techniques on how to run away from home.

There was this book about a teacher who no one listened to so she dressed up as a substitute. I remember liking that one
And "when the teacher isn't looking" poetry collection for kids and "Wee Sing" was a song book

I think I read these as well, but my memory is so bad that I can't remember if I actually read them.
