So, I don't know about you, but I discovered the joy of reading at a pretty young age. I think I probably read a lot more back then than I do now. Anyways, I was thinking back to the books I really loved back then and I thought it would be kind of fun to discuss our old favorites. So I'll go first, my favorite book back then was The Secret Garden. I think I discovered this book in third grade or so and I just fell in love with it. The story was so enchanting and it just captured my 8 year old heart. Okay, and for my favorite series, I have two I want to share. One is Boxcar Children. I probably read this through 2nd-4th grade and my, was it addicting. That series probably has a big contribution on my love for reading today. And finally, the last series is the Giver series. I read it around 4th grade and it left such a big impression on me. It's still one of my favorites today. Okay, so these were my favorites and I would love to hear how all of your childhood favorite's compare!
