Heart of a Child Reading Challenge
Yes, I'm joining another reading challenge! The Heart of a Child Challenge. I can't help it though. First of all, I love the image associated with it, isn't it adorable. Want me to join your challenge? Make a cute, little image button and I'll join, it's as simple as that.
Anyway, here are the rules:
Heart of a Child Challenge
How many? Read 3 to 6 books
When? from February 1, 2008 to July 14, 2008
What? Books and authors that you discovered, loved, or adored as a child. Anything and everything that you read through the age of 18 would qualify.
Why? Because sometimes it's fun to reread books and see if they still hold the same "magic."
This is such a wonderful idea. My love of reading began when I was very little. I, honestly can't remember a time when I didn't love to read. So, I have a zillion books from which to chose from, which actually makes it more difficult. What to chose? What to chose? Well, I settled on 4-ish. It's not set in stone because the last book is a series, and I may only read one from it, or I may read more.
So, without further a-do:
The Secret Garden (HarperClassics) by Frances Hodgson Burnett. (Who didn't love this as a child? It was my favorite escape from daily life.)
Charlotte's Web (Trophy Newbery) by E. B. White. (Of course!)
Sunshineby Norma Klein. (This one was from my teenage years. The sad story of a young mother with cancer leaving a journal for her baby daughter.)
Nancy Drew Starter Set (Nancy Drew) by Carolyn Keene. (Reread every summer for years and years!)
