My favorite childrens books

Happy Birthday or Whatever: Track Suits, Kim Chee, and Other Family DisastersI'm currently reading Happy Birthday or Whatever: Track Suits, Kim Chee, and Other Family Disasters in Maui. My best from high school recommended it because it's so laugh out loud funny. Thanks, Andy Mac!


As a child, I remember fondly curling up on a window seat, or under a tree and reading my way into another land. Some of my favorite books were series like, the Wizard of Oz books, Nancy Drew, and the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

I came across my old L. Frank Baum books at my parents house over Christmas. I love the vivid and fantastical covers. One of my favorite characters was OzmaWhile I was reading the series, Ozma and Dorothy were always close to my age, and I enjoyed that they were full of adventure and mischief. [Apparently the Lambertville Library has the entire text of Ozma of Oz on their website. 

If you don't have time to read the whole book, just look at a few of the amazing illustrations by John R. Neill!]

I adored Little House and Nancy Drew when I was little. I still do actually!
