Challenge Link-Up Post: Children's Classic


Please link your reviews for your Children's Classic here.  This is only for the Children's Classic  category.  Short stories are fine, but it must be a complete volume. Young adult and picture books don't count!   If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section.  If you like, you can include the name of your blog and/or the title of the book in your link, like this: "Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe)."

  2. I'm noticing a trend here with Montgomery books! I loved reading Rilla of Ingleside for the first time after reading the other books in the series many times.

  3. The Brownies: Their Book by Palmer Cox. I saw this on a list of children's classics and remembered seeing adorable Brownie images long, long ago. The challenge was a perfect reason to investigate, as I usually don't have children's books in my TBR pile.

  4. I decided to go for an adventure in Wonderland with Alice.

    1. Sorry, it was time to renew with Mr. Linky and I was out of town. It's fixed now. I'll add your link.

  8. I read Peter Pan, and its tone was quite different from what I expected. Really enjoyed it.

  15. As @The Thompsons I, too, decided to go with Alice. I had never read it in English, and it was a fantastic experience!

  17. I read Little House in the Big Woods, the first book in the Little House on the Prairie series, by Laura Ingells Wilder. It was such a great book, and I learned so much about life on the frontier.

  18. I read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to my nieces. They enjoyed it a lot, but I hated it!

  19. The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goodge is entrancing, but it does seem dated. My granddaughter is interested in fantasy, which you could say this is, but it may be too much of a fairy tale for her to like. I'll have to try it on her and see what she says.

  20. Finished The Secret Garden last night. It was really quite charming!

  21. It was more of a teen book but I hope The Luckiest Girl by Beverly Cleary counts as a "children's" classic. Cleary is one of my all time favorite children's authors so I wanted to use her books in the challenge but I had read all of her books that were more for children. Anyway--let me know if you think this doesn't qualify and I'll find another one to read. Thanks!
