This week (3rd-9th October) is Children’s Book Week! More information can be found here at the Booktrust.

It is a celebration of children of primary school age reading for pleasure, with lots of events happening to tie in.

It got me thinking about all the books i read as a child, and there were quite a few of them! A few months ago i blogged a list of the books i remember reading when i was young, which can be found here.

Its hard to pick out one favourite children’s book, so i’ll give you my top 5!

  1. Harry Potter series- Although this is a series, i have no particular fav book as they’re all good!
  2. The Famous Five series – Another series with no particular fav, but i couldn’t get enough of these books!
  3. “The Valley of Adventure” by Enid Blyton – Always loved Blyton’s books, but this was one of the best!
  4. “Vicky Angel” by Jacqueline Wilson – Her books are good, i didnt read all of them as i didn’t get into them until quite late on in my childhood, but this one is my favourite because it deals with the subject of death really well.
  5. Peter Rabbit books – Always loved these, more so because i live near where Beatrix Potter lived in the Lake District!

    HP isnt exactly suitable for children later on in the series though…

      Hmmm that is true. I’m pushing the upper age limit of children’s books by including Harry Potter!
