24 Hour Read-a-Thon - (2) Mini Challenges - Hour #17

Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile is hosting the Hour #17 mini challenge: Give Me Five:

Go to your blog and post a list of five favorite children's books.  They don't have to be THE five end-all-be-all of your favorites, because then you'll just agonize over which ones to pick, and we want this to be easy.  Just list five off the top of your head that you enjoyed as a child, or that your children enjoy. Here are mine (off the top of my head):
  1. The Giving Tree
  2. Love You Forever
  3. Are You My Mother?
  4. Good Night Moon
  5. Nancy Drew #1 - The Secret of the Old Clock
 Fyrefly's Books is hosting a Dance-a-thon mini challenge. (I needed something like this to put a spark back in me). I chose: This One's For the Girls' Martina McBride. Feel like dancing?? CLICK HERE!


  1. The Giving Tree is one of my faves too. I first read it when I was only about 4 or so.

    Hope you are doing okay. I am losing steam and my eyes are buggin' me right now. Just put some Visine in!

  2. I love Good Night Moon too! And of course any Nancy Drew!

  3. Wonderful! Happy Reading! and dancing... :)

  4. These are great choices. I have a copy of The Giving Tree and Are you my mother? which my dear children gave me for Mother's day last year. Don't children's books hold such wonderous memories? At least, I find that's true for me.
    As you've approached midnight, may the powerful words that you may read tonight remain with you for your reading pleasure and enjoyment.
    Simply have fun while reading!

  5. I read and loved the first four books on your list!

  6. I love the image of all of us reading fools dancing around by ourselves! Happy Reading!

  7. Have you started The Haunting of Hill House yet? I should've picked a scary book to keep me awake too.

    I recommend Thomas Glavinic's Night Work for the next Read-a-Thon.

  8. good night moon is the best. loved reading that one over and over and over to my daughter.

  9. I remember Secret of the Old Clock! I didn't even think of older reads, just early readers or picture books

  10. Wow! Hour 17?! Very impressive!

    I loooved Are You My Mother.

    Also loved The Berenstein Bears books. Ah, youth.
