Today’s Topic: Childhood Book Tag

What were your favorite books read to you as a child? Why?

To pick a few… “Goodnight Moon” and “If You give a Mouse a Cookie”.
Do you have any special memories or traditions associated with these books?

Not really. I loved reading so much as child, but I felt being read to by my parents was more special.
What were your favorite books or series when you were old enough to read? Why?

I read so many series as a kid. I was a bookworm even in my early years. Some of my favorites were “Goosebumps”, “Little House on the Prairie”, “Junie B Jones”, and “Magic Tree House”. It’s pretty much the same reasons I read books today. They took me to new places, explore the past/future without having to leave the comfort of my home or let me travel without having to pay money for an expensive trip.
What was your favorite book character in these?

Junie B. Jones, she had such a big personality. The books were fun to read and I was always laughing when Junie got herself into situations since she was so curious and mischievous.
What was your favorite book in a childhood series?

Probably the book  in the Magic Tree House Series where they travel back in time to Pompeii. I always have found the history of Pompeii interesting since I was a kid.
Did you ever dress up like one from your favorite books?

No sadly. But I could go back in time I would have told my childhood self to dress up. And it would be an epic transformation like so….


Was there a movie adaptation of any of your childhood favorites? If so, did you like it?

Yes, I really loved the movie adaptation of “Coraline”! The animation and voice acting were fantastic!

Have you read any children’s series as an adult/teen that you loved? If so, what were they?

I really don’t read children’s series anymore, but I do enjoy reading young adult novels! Some of my favorite picks I haven’t already mentioned on this blog so far are “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness, “Divergent” by Veronica Roth, and “Uglies” by Scott Westerfield.

  1. Junie B. Jones cracks. me. up. I remember my mum reading those books to my little sister and we’d all be laughing too hard to get through a page. Even now, when I have a hard day of book-selling, I’ll flip through one on the kids’ shelf and cheer up immediately. The Frances books, about that little badger who makes up little songs all the time, also have such a great, precocious voice for the main character.

    I read a lot of children’s and teens’ books now that I’m technically a “grown up,” not just because that’s my area of expertise at the bookshop but also because I want to write for Middle Schoolers and love getting myself back in that mindset. Even the early chapter books can be great fun, and you can get through one in forty five minutes, which fits my lunch break perfectly.

    I love these Thursday book tag things you do. Good questions every time. And now you’ve made me want to go find some Barbara Park books ASAP. (So sad she died. She really understood what kids want to read.)

    1. Yeah, Junie B.Jones books are hilarious and its so sad that Barbara Park passed away. She was a fantastic writer. And I also remember reading the Frances books too! Glad you enjoy Book Tag Thursdays. All the credit goes to the fabulous book bloggers and vloggers that create them. I working on trying to make my own original book tag, so hopefully that will come in the future.
