Middle School books that meant something to me:
The Boxcar Children
Being abandoned by both of my parents, ( just a fact, not meant for emotional tugging;) I was extremely fascinated with this book. It has stuck with me all these years. Whenever life gets tough or scary I always get this deep down feeling that I can make it no matter what. I was in awe of these children. Not just the survival mode they were in, but the fun and adventures they had along the way. Anyone read this one?
Of course being a very sensitive person. This book struck my heart hard, as it did to many. I most loved the sense of adventure, following your dreams and the love he had for his dogs! How did this book effect you?
This book just fascinated me. I was most drawn to the woods. They were mysterious! Did you read this one?
These are some of my all time favorite Disney movies. That means that the first time I watched them something hit me HARD inside!
These are just a few of my favorite children's book's that I own, love and read over and over again to my children. I collect children's books. I was an El Ed major at one time (till I switched my major) and have taught in educationally based preschools. I read to my daughters from the day they were born and taught both of them to read through phonics. Not the "hooked on phonics", just me:) What are your favorite books you read to your children?
The Big Hungry Bear is Beautifully illistrated. I read this over and over. It was from Discovery Toys, which I sold at one time.
Anything with a mom theme;)
I am obsessed with any Beranstain Bear book. Have and read them all. This was one of our all time favorites. I would read the books with great theatrics;) I love them so much because of: the family theme, the illustrations and lessons about life;) Try them if you've never read them;)
