After that little stroll down memory lane on my favourite Enid Blyton book, I decided to make a list of favourite childhood books I would like to share and read with Nathan & Co. someday.
Here’s my list…
Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, and The Witches
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis (seven books in the series)
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Mrs Frisby and The Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s series of Little House books (eight books)
The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit
And of course Enid Blyton’s The Wishing Chair and The Magic Faraway Tree
Going through let’s say around a chapter a day, I reckon this list should cover off a good five years at least.
I’m not sure how my reading will be received by my little audience someday. I’m terrible at doing voices – and character voices are pretty essential to the whole reading aloud experience.
