Just wanted to share my extremely battered (or, as we say at work “well loved”) copy of my childhood favorite. It‘s a wonderful adventure tale that tackles the issues of self-acceptance, identity, adoption and family. I absolutely love the heroine, who in my opinion is more brave and self-assured than half of the leading ladies in YA novels today. #childhoodfavorite #leadingladies

This book was an absolute #ChildhoodFavorite... my mom used to read it to me allll the time, then I used to pretend to read it to my dolls. I still love this one, and have it in my collection for when LO gets old enough to handle it gently ❤ We even have one of the original Baby Dear dolls that were released!

#ChildhoodFavorite #SpringIntoReading These were in my stash from my childhood.As I got older I traded my kids books ,gave some to family members but these I held on to.I really didn‘t want the Little House to move from the city to the country,I guess I knew gentrification would happen later on , for good or for ill.🙂😒

A #childhoodfavorite is dad gifting me a yellow boxed set of Little House books on Christmas morning when I was 8 (1974). I reread them many times over. When I see one of these books I think of him and smile ❤️👨‍👧📖

OrangeMooseReads We had a blue set when I was growing up. I played with them and tried to read them, but they never captured my attention for long. 10mo

These are some of my #childhoodfavorite (s) I remember asking my parents to read to me and got so frustrated that they wouldn‘t read them 5,6 times a night that I learned to read at 4 years old so that I could continue to read after my parents went to bed. They knew what I was doing but were so proud that they didn‘t stop me and I will always be thankful for that!! #springintoreading @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88

This is my #childhoodfavorite! It was given to me by my uncle when I was little. There were years where I had it completely memorized. I wish I still did, I should work on that.

Little House in the Big Woods | Laura Ingalls Wilder

This is a little house in the big city of Dallas, at the arboretum and botanical garden. Yes, I clocked my head on the beam, but it was a fun visit nonetheless.

Back in the day I read this #childhoodfavorite series the way my niece read Harry Potter. When I got to the end of book 9, I‘d go back to book 1 and start all over again.


Bklover Me too! Loved them all, and missed them when I wasn‘t reading them 10mo
Susanita @Bklover Yes! I wanted Laura to hang out with me. 10mo
