Thursday Thirteen #8

Thirteen Things about South Carolina Mom

13 Books I have love. . .

You will see that most of these titles are children's titles. I read all of these during my childhood and some of them again as an adult. I identified with the main character in many of these, which is why they are my favorites. The Bible is first because of the impact it has had on my life. The second title is loved by my oldest son Th and myself, and we have read it a few times together. The others are listed in no particular order.


1. Bible
2. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
3. Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary
4. Tallahassee Higgins by Mary Downing Hahn
5. Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park
6. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
7. Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene
8. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
9. Corduroy series by Don Freeman
10. My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George
11. Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard & Florence Atwater
12. Ramona Quimby series by Beverly Quimby
13. Wait till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn

The Bible is amazing. I really love children's books also. I'm reading Anne of Green Gables for the first time and am so enjoying it. Blessings...

I haven't read a one of those, but I have heard of several.

With the exception of the Bible, I did not read any of these. I never liked "childrens books" when I was a kid. I was more a Nancy Drew person, myself.

I absolutely love everything about Junie B. Jones! My daughter and I read these together when she was younger and we would just laugh and laugh!
