Top 5 WednesdayHappy Wednesday! (whop whop) Today’s topic is favorite children’s books. Off to nostalgia-land we go!

If you’d like to join T5W, you can do so here.


5 – The Tawny Scrawny Lion by Kathryn Jackson

Tawny Scrawny LionThis was my favorite Golden Book when I was younger. This whole list could have been full of Golden Books but I feel like that might have gotten a bit repetitive. It’s about a lion who’s really hungry and ten rabbits to teach him to make carrot stew to avoid being eaten. It’s super cute and I’m gonna read it to my future kids.

 

4 – The Island of Giant Pokemon by Tracey West

Island of the Giant Pokemon (Pokemon Chapter Book, #2)This is another pick that this whole list could be dominated by. This is the second book in a what, 8 or 9 book series? Maybe more. Usually this series gets brought up when discussing topics like ‘Why I’m a Reader’ or ‘Childhood memories’ in blog posts. This series definitely got me reading and this one in particular stands out as the most memorable. I have my copies somewhere still – I think they’re at my parents’ house in storage. I need to go get them.

 

3 – Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Inkheart (Inkworld, #1)When I was first starting my book collection, I’m talking actually making a conscious effort to buy and read books, I was about 12 I think. I had books before then, but I didn’t love buying books yet, if that makes sense. This book and its sequel were my first purchases. My dad convinced me to buy hard backs, which I had never done before. It was super neat and now I’m a hopeless case – books books everywhere and not a drop to drink!

 

2 – Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella EnchantedThis is the first book I ever read that could be considered ‘romance’ to any degree. I was again probably 12 or so when I randomly picked it up at the library…. and then I proceeded to re-rent it over and over. I have probably read this book 20 times if not more. It’s definitely one of the cornerstones of my childhood reading development and I still have a really soft spot for it.

 

 

1 – Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl, #1)This is number one for a few reasons: It sparked my love in fantasy (along with HP), it’s a really, really good series that I still enjoy as an adult, and it’s very easy to dish out as a recommendation for a young, budding reader. It follows a 12-year-old mastermind and his lethally trained butler named Butler. Artemis is neat but I love Butler. He’s definitely one of my favorite characters ever.

Wah, NOSTALGIA.

And that’s it! Happy reading!

    I LOVED the Inkheart series! I really want to re read it. I know that I’ve read Ella Enchanted but I don’t remember a thing from the book…weird…
