This is an idea that’s been swirling around in my mind quite a bit. As an avid reader, I absolutely want my future children to love reading as much as I do (and did when I was younger). This is an interesting list because I do enjoy many books but not everything sticks out as something I want to keep around for my future kids.
Sure I have books that I enjoy but I wouldn’t ‘force’ my kids to read them. If the books interest them, great! If it’s not their cup of tea, that’s fine too.
Here’s my list of books I want my children to read:
Redwall (and other books within the series) by Brian Jacques
The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
Matilda by Roald Dahl
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
What are some books you want your children to read? How about books that you want to read with them?
(You can probably expect another installment of this list some point in the future.)
