This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is top 10 books you love but don’t talk about enough. This is another hard one, as I do my best to keep this blog mixed up and fresh. Still, I’m sure there are a few books I rarely talk about that deserve recognition that I can scrounge up and talk about.
And, now that I’ve thought it out, I’ve really had a hard time coming up with only 10 books for this list.
I’ve decided to list children’s early reading level books. But, not just any easy-to-read books. I’m listing my favorite books from my early reading years. Most of these are pretty popular ones that I think you’ll recognize. Still, every one of these books deserves it’s mention.
I also like this idea because I rarely talk about such young reading levels. So, I’ve had a nice time reminiscing, and I’m glad I chose this topic.
Also, it must be bonus week. I gave a few bonus book recs in yesterday’s post and now am giving 2 extra books in today’s TTT!
These are in no particular order. Click each image to be redirected to book’s Goodreads page.
This is my favorite Dr. Seuss book, and, honestly, probably my favorite kid’s book. I read this book like every day when I was little. It’s so fun, and I connected with it so easily because it’s all about having a vivid imagination. I still read it every now and then. It’s a great book for anyone, honestly.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who loved The Berenstain Bears as a kid; they’re phenomenal books. This one was always my favorite, though. It’s another one I connected with on a personal level because I always had a messy room as a kid. (Actually, it hasn’t changed much – my room is still cluttered and messy. It’s a part of who I am at this point.)
This one is right up there with And to Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street. I adored this book. I don’t even know why since the story isn’t all that compelling. It has beautiful illustrations, though, and is marvelously fun. This is another one I still read from time to time.
How could I not include this beloved Children’s book? It’s such a interesting story and tackles childhood angst and anger in a healthy, fun way. The illustrations are so pretty, and the story is marvelous. I flip through this book every now and then too.
This book is so much fun, omg! I loved reading this as a kid. The gorilla has so many nighttime antics. The poor zookeeper. Seriously though, this is a wonderful story.
This was the first book I learned with in school and worked hard to read it from cover to cover, so how can I not love it? It’s a good story with a good lesson that will surely entertain anyone, children and adults alike.
Once again, I’m sure I’m not alone in this – my love for the Little Critter books; they’re lovely. This was my favorite one, but it was hard to choose. They’re all such good books!
Oh. My. Gawd. These books are EXCELLENT. They don’t have any text written in them relying solely on the artwork/pictures to tell the story. And, the pictures totally do. I don’t care what age you are, you need to have a copy of each of these books. They’re wonderful. These are an exceptional must for dog lovers!
Another marvelous children’s book filled with fun and humor. This is super fun for anyone. Plus, the pictures are adorable. I read this one so much as a child that it needed to make this list.
Who doesn’t love Clifford the Big Red Dog? This was my favorite clifford story, even if he isn’t so big yet. He was an adorable puppy, you have to admit!
This is the story of Jesus’ birth told through the perspective of the animal’s in the stable. It’s so fun and beautifully illustrated. I loved this story as a child. I still think about this book frequently and want to weep over the beauty of it.
A Winnie the Pooh book had to make this list. I loved this collection of stories. They’re phenomenal and treated my young self very well. I loved many other pooh books as a child, but this was my favorite.
Talk about a walk down memory lane. Wowza, that was an emotional journey. Do you remember reading any of these books as a kid? Liked/disliked?
