Children's Books I Love

  1. The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame – Oh, how I’d love to go and live in the Wildwood with Rat, Mole, Badger and Toad. The lovely English countryside and the antics of these loveable characters call to me always.

  1. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkein – What a sturdy fellow is Bilbo Baggins. I'd love to visit the Shire and have some tea and seed cake with him.

  1. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein – Where Good is the superior force.

  1. Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White – Let’s hear it for all runts of the litter.

  1. Rascal by Sterling North – For anyone who ever loved an animal.

  1. Bandit Moon by Sid Fleishman – What a fun, fun book!

  1. Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem – I hate the mice in my kitchen, but love the ones in this delightful book series. Her illustrations are utterly charming.

  1. Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park – Tell it like it is kid.

  1. 7 Sister Mysteries by Ellen Miles – I only have five sisters but we had adventures like these!

  1. Chicka, Chicka, Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. – There’s enough room at the top of my coconut tree for this little gem.
