Show Us Your Life: Favorite Childhood Books

So this week on Kelly's Korner, the theme is favorite books/children's books.  I loved to read as a kid...and now with my Kindle I am getting back into the swing of things.  Here is just a small sampling of books that I couldn't put down.

Amelia Bedelia: Is there a girl out there that didn't read all of her books?  I just loved reading all about her mistakes and funny way that she interpreted things.

Anne of Green Gables:  This is more of a cult like following for me.  My sisters and I would sit down for a whole afternoon and watch all of the movies.  The books were so romantic, funny, and I used to dream that I could have adventures like Anne.

Babysitters Club: Who didn't try to start their own neighborhood babysitters club after reading these books?  The taught the concept of entrepreneurship.

Little House on the Prairie: It seemed like there was always one more book.  It seemed like the series never ended.  They were so adventurous.

Ramona Quimby: I loved reading all about Ramona...her trials and tribulations.  They were memorable.

Nancy Drew: These books were ones that my mom passed down from her childhood.  They really got your imagination going.  (They just don't write books like they used to.)

Well, there you have it.  Some of my favorites from when I was a kid.

I read Amelia Bedelia to my girls now and loved the baby sitter's club. Brings back great reading memories.

I loved all of these, and definitely try to start my own baby-sitter's club. And not only did I love the Anne of Green Gables books and movies, I loved watching Avonlea as well.
