Top Ten Tuesday: Books From My Childhood I would Love To Revisit 24/3/15

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over there at The Broke and the Bookish. I'd love to share my lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

I'm fairly lucky because I get to read children's books at work. Even though the children I work with are 11, there's still value in reading pictures books with them so nothing is off limits really! There are some books that I loved when I was growing up, many of which I listened to on tape that I would rewind and listen again and again, so here's my list...

1. The Ramona series by Beverley Cleary-love love loved this! Made me want a sister too..

2. The Chalet School series by Elinor Brent Dyer. Didn't manage to read them all as many were out of print and despite the library trying to get them for me, we were out of luck! 

3. All the Judy Blume Books. I recently re-read forever but I would love to re-read some of the others. These were some of the first books I devoured not on tape! 

4. The Scrambled Legs Books. I loved ballet, this series was great! My dad read them to me and I'm sure he enjoyed reading about this group as much as i did! 

5. The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis, another one my dad read to me although we stopped at Voyage of the Dawn Treader because we didn't enjoy that one as much! 

6. The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr. I recently read this with a group at school as I have the pop up version of it as well-love this book so much, every time I went to the library we would re-read it! 

7. The Tales of Beatirx Potter-any of them! I love the lakes and I love Beatrix potter. I once had a friend who had never heard of her and so I would ring them up sometimes just before bedtime and read one as a bedtime story-technology at its best! 

8. Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh. This one was read to me when I was 7 by my class teacher at the time and it had a big effect on me. 

9. The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross. I loved this one and when the TV series came out-man! 

10. Carrie's War by Nina Bawden. Another one I used to get out on tape from the library quite a bit-it scared me but I liked it!
