1. Goodnight Moon


2. Junie B. Jones Is Captain Field Day


3. The Very Hungry Caterpillar 


4. Harriet the Spy


5. Ralph Fletcher's Writer's Notebook


6. From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler


7. The Egypt Game


8. The Giving Tree (I mean, come on! A classic!)


9. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie


10. Flat Stanley (I even had one that traveled around with me!)


So that's all for this week's Top Ten Tuesday! Do you have different childhood favorites you want to talk about? Any that match up with mine? Comment down below and let me know! ♥


  1. I read Goodnight Moon to Elliott every single night before bed!

    - Mari @ Musings of a (Book) Girl

  2. These books look so adorable! Wonderful list.

  3. Goodnight Moon and The Giving Tree - they both make cry!!!

  4. Goodnight Moon is so perfect and I don't even know why, but seeing it just instantly makes me feel calm. Egypt Game is a great one too; love that author.

    Gotta confess, I read one Junie B. Jones book circa age 8, and I was immediately APPALLED by her behavior. APPALLED.

  5. I loved HARRIET as a kid-- but I reread it to my son recently and we both HATED her. It was such a shock since it was a complete 180 on my previous feelings!!

  6. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is an adorable read, too.

    My TTT.

  7. Great list! The Very Hungry Caterpillar and If you Give a Mouse a Cookie are so cute. The Giving Tree always makes me cry. I remember The Egypt Game! I read it a very long time ago so I don't remember too much about it, but I do remember enjoying it. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  8. I actually forgot about The Very Hungry Catepillar and am surprised you're the first person to have it on their list. Harriet the Spy was a lot of fun, I remember when the movie came out I also had my very own spy notebook. Haha.

    My TTT:

  9. Such fabulous picks and good childhood memories!

    Here's my TTT

  10. Oh man, I used to be OBSESSED with Harriet the Spy! Such a great list of books, I forgot about some of these until now!

  11. I've read The Egypt Game! I loved Charlotte's Web and the Pippi Longstocking books as a kid.

  12. The Giving Tree is definitely a classic. I remember reading If You Give A Mouse A Cookie when I worked at a day care.

  13. My oldest son loved Goodnight Moon. I read it to him so often I had it memorized.
