  1. My favorite book(s) was A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle and the rest of that series. I liked her other book, but those were my favorites.

  2. Anne of Green Gables and Little Women were my favorites. And I loved the book Behind The Attic Wall, which I'm pretty sure would give me nightmares if I read it now!

  3. My all-time favorite as a child was A Wrinkle in Time (and the whole Trilogy) by Madeleine L'Engle. But I also loved anything by Judy Blume, The Secret Garden and A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson, and The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis.

  4. My favorite was probably Black Beauty. Here's my blog post with a few more: Favorite Childhood Books
