Book(s) of the Week: Kids Edition!

Since school just started, and some of my readers are mamas, I decided to do a very special book of the week post! Let's take a look back at some of my old childhood (and young adult) favorites...

Judy Blume was my absolute favorite author as a kid. I loved all the Fudge books. I'll be honest, I actually read a couple of these recently just for the heck of it... and they're just as good as I remember them!

Coming in at a close second is Beverly Cleary. The Ramona books were great. There was a TV series too! Does anyone remember it? I found this video of the opening credits... that brought back some memories!

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle! I think one of these books was on my summer reading list as a kid but I ended up reading them all. I might have to pick one up at the library soon, because to be quite honest, I hardly remember them.... I just remember that I couldn't put them down!

Below are my six favorite young adult-ish books. Most of these are a given, I mean, who doesn't love To Kill a Mockingbird?

So... what are some of your childhood favorites?


  1. sharon creech is my favorite author of all time. when i moved, the only books i brought with me were a bunch of textbooks.... and walk two moons. just in case i need it.

  2. also..... "stay gold, ponyboy" is the greatest line in literature, and atticus finch is a king among men. I LOVE THIS POST.
