Recently, my oldest has developed a deep love of reading. I have to take his books away at night! At seven, I know even I didn't have a love of reading that strong. It gives me hope that it may carry through to adulthood.
As I try to keep his overflowing basket of books full of new books to hold his interest, it got me thinking about books from when I was young. For me Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing, and The BFG, were two of the first books to pop into my head. It also got me thinking about what books others read in their youth. So what are your childhood favorites?
