Top 10 Children's Books I Remember Loving

We were all kids at one time, right dear readers? Or did you just hatch from some egg as a full grown adult. If that is the case, we should be friends!

I loved reading as a kid, and even as an adult I have thought of some awesome kids books. There are so many that I remember being really good, whether it was for their story, their message, or just how much I loved them.

Some of these books will be picture books, some will be chapter books, and some will be a part of a series.

I hope that these books give you some fond memories, and who knows, maybe we can talk about how good they were in the comments, or on social media!

The Magic Treehouse Series

The epitome of traveling to other worlds. Jack and Annie would go to a new time period, a new moment in history in each book, and experience it for themselves. What more could a young reader want in a book series?


Redwall Series

These books were my favourite thing as a kid. Knights, fantasy, epic battles, all mixed with animal characters. It was probably my first dip into the fantasy world, and one I still remember well to this day.


Love You Forever

I don’t need to say anything about this book. If you don’t know about it, all I am going to say is you need to read it. If you have read it. then you understand completely why it is on the list.


Bridge to Teribithia

This was a book I read in school, and it really stuck with me for a while. I felt like I really connected with this story because I always had such a wild imagination as a kid, and reading about two other kids like me was awesome.


Magyk Series

I’m a bit mad that I never got to the end of this series. It came out when I was a little too old for it, and I never stuck with it. I really liked it though, because it was an adventure. Readers got to go on an adventure with a magician that had a pet dragon. I don’t think things could get much cooler than that.

Inkheart Series

Imagine you’re a book reader. Like you’re reading a book every few days/weeks, and then you come across a book character that can literally bring books to life. Sounds like it would be an awesome time right? Yeah, you can imagine why I loved these books.


Dragon Rider

I won this book in a contest in the 6th grade over the rest of my class, and I loved it. I read it right away, slightly to spite the other classmates, and slightly because I loved dragons when I was a kid.


Captain Underpants Series

They were funny, a little bit dumb, and had a dude in his underpants running around saving the world. For a pre-teen, I thought these books were the epitome of hilarity.


Velvatine Rabbit

This book made me nearly cry when I was a kid. It was really sad imagining some of my toys going through the same thing. It has a good message to it, but it definitely won’t make you laugh.

Where the Red Fern Grows

I’ve mentioned this book before. I had to read it for school, and stayed up late one night to finish it. It was an adventure, a book about determination, and sadness. It really covered a lot of bases, and it is one of the few books on this list I’ve thought about re-reading again.

TOP TEN TUESDAY: BOOKS I’VE READ THAT I’D LIKE IN MY PERSONAL LIBRARY

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This one took me a long time to figure out, but I think I came up with a pretty good list in my opinion.

The Fellowship of the Ring

I read it on an e-Reader but haven’t purchased a physical copy yet.

Redwall Series

My favourite books growing up. I have kept the main stories, but I’d like to own them all again one day.

One Piece

Seems like a loft goal owning every chapter of One Piece. I’d probably need a room dedicated to it, but I wouldn’t mind that.

Naruto

I think this is a series I could re-read again in a reasonable amount of time, and I’d like to own it in order to do that.

Fullmetal Alchemist

I’ve started the collection, but I hope to own them all one day soon. There’s not too many so it’s not that achievable.

Where the Red Fern Grows

A great book from my childhood that I would love to read again from an adult perspective.

Legend Series

One of my favourite YA series that I’ve read. I always got the books from my school library, so owning them would be nice, especially since there is a new one coming out soon.

Various Shakespeare Works

Something about owning a bunch of Shakespeare stories makes me feel distinguished? Educated? Either way I’d like to own some more.

Sherlock Holmes

I’ve read a few Sherlock Holmes pieces in various books, but I’d like one giant collection of them all.

UnNamed Book from Childhood

I don’t remember the name of it, or who wrote it, but I remember it was about a boy who was kidnapped and dragged to an island in order to figure out a water pumping system his dad built to get at some buried treasure. If that makes any sense to you and you know the name, please let me know!
