Top 10 Childhood Books

Today’s Tuesday Top 10, brought to you by The Broke and The Bookish 

 So, on to my Top Ten Childhood Book choices (not in order): 

  1. The Giving Tree — Shel Silverstein
  2. The Golden Treasury of Children’s Literature — a compendium of many stories
  3. The Dark Is Rising (whole series)– Susan Cooper
  4. The Outsiders — S.E. Hinton
  5. The Book of Tall Tales & The Velveteen Rabbit (Margery Williams) — Mom read these to me
  6. The story of Ruffian — this ignited a 3-fold plan for college and career when I was about 8 — most of which was solved by others by the time I got to high school
  7. Disney’s Storybook Albums — over and over and over
  8. Mother Goose Rhymes — Pop read these to/with me…still quote them
  9. Nancy Drew Mysteries & Hardy Boys Mysteries — ND by Carolyn Keene, HB by Franklin W. Dixon (pseudonym for a slew of ghostwriters)
  10. The Black Stallion series — Walter Farley
