Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Childhood Books

This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It's hard to condense what these books meant to me without doing very long paragraphs, so I'm going to do one-sentence summaries for now.1. Bark George by Jules FeifferWhen I was little, I was always nudging my mom to read this to me at night and sometimes I still pull it out to read again. This is my number one.2. The Christmas Doll by Elvira WoodruffWe used to read this every year at Christmas, but last year we weren't able to. It's a great book and was always a part of my childhood.3. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice SendakThis is obviously on the list, but I do remember this vividly.4. Go Dog Go! by P.D. EastmanThis was one of my first books that I was able to read by myself and I've always loved it.5. Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. SeussPredictably, Dr. Seuss is on here. This was my first picture book, and this is the Dr. Seuss book I love. I've always had a deep rooted fear of Dr. Seuss though.6. The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler WarnerWe have all of the books in the series. Seeing as there are over a hundred of them, that's pretty amazing. This is my twin's favorite book series from when she was little and one of my favorites.7. The Magic Tree House by Mary Pope OsborneAgain, one of my first chapter books. In younger grades, our teachers had shelves full in the back.8. Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher.This is one of the few larger books that I first remember reading. I first read this in second grade, and had it for novel studies in fourth.9. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K RowlingThis was my first big book. I first read this in second grade, and I remember my teacher not believing that I had finished it in less than a few days. This was probably my first big milestone when people first started realizing that I read that quickly.10. No More Dead Dogs by Gordon KormanI have so much to say about Gordon Korman. Expect a blog post on it later, but he was the person who first made me want to become an author. This book was my turning point for when I knew I wanted to belong in books.Thank you for reading!What are your top ten?Grace
