{Top Ten Books I Want My Future Grandchildren to Read}

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

Well, given that my boys are between the ages of 22 and 12, I think it’s safe to say that this list might apply to my future (and I do hope no in the near future) grandchildren.  Some of these were my favorites and some are books that my children loved growing up.

Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss – I must have read this book a 100 times!  I actually know some parts by memory and all my kids loved it too.

Are You my Mother by P.D. Estman – I read this book – voices and all – a lot a well.  The version we have has the story in English and Spanish so I could read it in both languages.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – A tearjerker, sweet story that is a most.

Little Women by Louise May Alcott – I read this series when I was in middle school and I feel in love with the story. Jo is still my favorite 🙂

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery – This is another beloved series that will steal you heart.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia Bond – Mouse was really popular with my youngest and the pictures are so sweet.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowlings – I hope that this series becomes a favorite of all ages and readers all over the world.  All hype and love is love is well deserved.

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – This series is probably better read when my grand-babies are a bit older, but I do hope then enjoy it as much as I did.

Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne – I read all of Verne’s books when I was around 15 and was amazed on how he was so far ahead of the times.

Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan – Yay! Mythology, quests, bravery, gods and more 🙂

What are some of the books you will read to your children or grandchildren?

    Dr. Seuss and Harry Potter are on my list. These are all good books, though I have not heard of the Little Princess. How about the Dinotopia series?

  2. Yeah for Anne! I had to include her. I always admired her spirit and ability to pick herself back up after a fall. One of my all-time favorite literary characters. I included Dr. Seuss as well. I thought he was getting a bad rap lately, and when I look to his books, they evoke my childhood (fact: my childhood nickname was Green Eggs, short for Sam I Am Green Eggs and Ham — I didn’t pick it BTW.)
