This week I’m running through my favourite childhood books. Enjoy!
Winnie The Pooh: The Complete Collection of Stories & Poems – A A Milne
How could this NOT be on anyone’s favourite list!?
‘What day is it today?’ asked Pooh.
‘It’s today,’ squeaked Piglet.
‘My favourite day,’ said Pooh.
The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-winkle – Beatrix Potter
Honestly I loved all of the Beatrix Potter stories, but this one was my absolute favourite. Such a lovely read!
Mrs Tiggy-winkle’s nose went sniffle, sniffle, snuffle, and her eyes went twinkle, twinkle; and she fetched another hot iron from the fire.
George’s Marvellous Medicine – Roald Dahl
I had an extensive Roald Dahl collection, but a soft spot for this one.
Never grow up… always down.
The Tiger Who Came To Tea – Judith Kerr
A beautiful book.
Sophie opened the door, and there was a big, furry, stripy tiger. The tiger said, ‘Excuse me, but I’m very hungry. Do you think I could have tea with you?’
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – JK Rowling
Would any ‘favourites’ list be complete without a Harry Potter book!?
To the well-organised mind, death is but the next great adventure.
We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. We’re not scared! What a beautiful day.
The Story of Tracey Beaker – Jacqueline Wilson
You’ll never guess what I did. I gave her my Mickey Mouse pen.
My naughty little sister is always getting in trouble […] will she ever learn to be good?
