#childprotagonists

I try to avoid reading more than one book at a time, but I've somehow found myself reading four simultaneously!
I just couldn't pass up the next @SerialReader #readalong! Mowgli has joined my menagerie of 11-year-old #childprotagonists.

jpmcwisemorgan It's ok. I used to never read more than one book at a time but in the last few years that's changed, mostly because I read on my Kindle and physical books - and I'm in a book club. 3y
KCorter @jpmcwisemorgan I'm in a similar situation. I have an audiobook for the car, a daily readalong with my youngest, the next installment in a series, and now a #SerialReader. There has been surprisingly little overlap despite the similar age of the protagonists. You did just remind me that I need to start my book club selection as well. ;p 3y

Aside from my own book (#FlaviaForever!), I usually have an #audiobook I listen to in the car with the kids. For about a week now, Simon and I have also read a chapter out of Anne of Green Gables before naptime.
Today I realized that Anne, Charlie, and Flavia are all clever and tenacious 11 year-old #childprotagonists! I hope these #currentreads brighten up these otherwise dark #currentevents.

mjdowens Flavia is my new hero👍 3y
KCorter Mine as well! I wish I was half as smart and spunky at her age. Let's be honest, I still wish that. Haha 3y

I remembered this little gem set in Australia for #dressesoncovers #readjanuary #childprotagonists. @RealLifeReading

Marchpane I've not read this but it was made into the film Opal Dream which was very sweet. 3y
Kimzey @Marchpane It was very sweet. I'll look for the film. Thanks! 3y
kirriemummy I just loved this. It was small, perfectly formed, and had so much swimming beneath the surface- questions of tolerance, family, love, grief. If I was in charge I would put it on every high school reading list, perhaps as a companion to to kill a mockingbird. 3y
Kimzey @kirriemummy I agree! 3y

A classic. One of the funniest books I read as a teenager and probably still. (This is the same cover as my copy from years ago!)... It's of its time but captures teen angst so vividly; great observations, characters, heart & soul. A must-read. #photoadayNov16 #childprotagonists

TheLondonBookworm Hehe I had this copy! 3y

A wonderful book, I highly recommend it. One of best #childprotagonists I've read. (John Boyne's Boy in Striped Pyjamas also comes to mind). I may have to do more than entry for this topic! #photoadayNov16

#childprotagonists My father used to read to me and my sisters every night until we fell asleep. I grew up on these stories and ones like them. They will always be my favorite memories of my childhood. #latesy #photoadaynov16 @RealLifeReading

There are many #childprotagonists that are dear to my heart but one of my earliest and most beloved is Madeline. Both book and doll are well loved and have seats of honor on my bookshelf. #photoadaynov16 #childhoodfavorites
