Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

This week’s topic is: Ten Amazing Books Published Before I Was Born

So, I do not reread books or read a lot of classics, but I love children’s books. I decided to use 5 picture books and 5 MG books that were published before I was born, so, here goes.

These were some of my favourites from childhood. I have read all of the picture books to my grandkids. I wish I still had the copies I owned as a child, but alas, they are no longer in my possession.
