Childhood Story Books

 

I was reminiscing  the other day  of what story books I read as kid and I found one book that I had  on my book shelf that was one of my favourite stories as a kid . it was Charlotte's  Web. I have one of the original copies still in good shape.

Then I got thinking of other stories as a kid I liked and have remembered over the years.

                                                9780060242558I did have this one in an original copy as well but I don't remember what happened to it or where it went .

                                  Then I remembered this book I read as a teen .

FlowersForAlgernon

Its funny how these books I have read as a kid just have stuck in my head and I have never forgotten them where as I read a book now a days and I couldn't tell you about it or don't even remember the title, am I getting old or is it just that these childhood books have made an impact or an impression in my mind. 

    What were your favourite childhood story books , do you remember one in particular book or books that have made an impact or impression on you ?

                      Until next time , hope you have a wonderful story book day.

Truthfully I don't remember a lot of my childhood! It's sad, I know! I remember Charlotte's Web, reading about Trixie Belden, and Nancy Drew. As I was getting older (HS) A tree grows in Brooklyn, To Kill a Mockingbird, and yes, Flowers for Algernon. I was at the Goodwill yesterday and spotted a book from one of my favorite movies: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I snapped that book up! A bargain for only 99 cents!

Oooh your childhood books are wonderful... I remember crying and crying over Charlotte's Web... some of my favorite childhood books were the Betsey~Tacy series, then later the Trixie Belden series... I still have all of my childhood books and look at them often... I think it is the happy memories they hold that makes us remember and love them so much... xoxo Julie Marie

As a child we are a blank slate, and we can absorb so much more.in a constant state of learning . As an addult we are so busy multitasking I am not sure we absorb half of what we read or hear. Love the books of my childhood.

Great idea for a blogpost! In early years of grade school I read the Little House series and Homer Price and the Katie John books, which I absolutely loved. They made me laugh. In later years of grade school I was into mysteries of the Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew type.

Flowers for Algernon was my most favorite book. I remember feeling so sad reading it but also loving it. Of course Charlotte's Web is another family favorite. Fun post!!
