The Book List: Childhood Favorites
Rebecca from Lost in Books is hosting this fun meme that allows us to share books and make a list of books! This week we are asked to list three books that we loved as children (I hope I got it right this time).
1. Anne of Green Gables (and the rest of the series) by Lucy M. Montgomery.
Who doesn't love Anne?! I loved this wise cracker, spunky and funny girl and always wanted to be like her even though or maybe because I was a complete opposite. It's twenty years later and I still can't get her out of my head :-).
2. House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
Long before Disney came up with their version of Winnie, Piglet and the gang, there had been this awesome book that really is a million times better than the Disney characters. I remember borrowing it from the library and reading it in one night and then after it was returned harping on my friends to read it faster so I could borrow it again (there was only one copy in the school library).
3. Comet in Moominland by Tove Jansson
I am so, so happy that Macmillan decided to introduce these cute Moomintrolls to the American market. As a child I could just never get quite enough of them and it makes my day that it's yet another favorite from my childhood that I can now share with my own kids
