So, I don’t read too many children’s books right now, but I have a few that I read in school that I loved and want to reread. So, I’ll mention those! These are in no particular order!

The Outsiders by SE Hinton


If you’ve been following me for a while, then I’m sure you know that this is one of my favorite books of all time. I adore this story and if you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.

The Giver by Lois Lowry


This is another one that I’m sure I’ve mentioned loving before. I absolutely love it and can’t get enough of it. I’ve read Gathering Blue and Messenger also but haven’t finished Son yet.

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor


I don’t remember exactly what this book was about, but it’s definitely one that I want to reread. I read it back in middle school and it was one that stuck in my mind, even though I didn’t remember the actual story. I know that it’s part of a series and it’s one of the middle books in the series so I may just read the whole series.

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein


I have never been huge on poetry, but this is one poet that I adore. I got one of his books for my son and I plan on getting him the rest. This is a very important story for children to hear, though.

Shugo Chara! by Peach-Pit


This was more of an anime that I adored but it’s also a manga. This was one of those ones where I of course shipped the girl with the older kid even though she was only in elementary school. But that’s okay. I was a weird kid. I want to reread/rewatch this show just to see how I like it now that I’m an adult.

Happy Reading!
