If you’re a reader, you remember your favorite childhood book. And, no matter how much time has passed since you were a child, you can quote lines from the story and describe the hero and the setting. The book—whether a mystery, humor, horror, or science fiction—became part of your own story.

That’s the power of books, and the power of reading, and that’s one reason for Children’s Book Week, an annual celebration of reading.

How can you celebrate this week? Grab your favorite childhood book, and re-read it. Share it with the children in your life by taking turns reading it aloud. Donate a copy of the book to your library. Exchange it for the favorite book of a friend or neighbor.

However you choose to join the fun, we hope you recapture the joy and pleasure that reading your favorite book brought the first time you held it in your hands and began your journey.

We’re readers too, as well as authors, and we like to think that one of our books will become someone’s favorite.

  1. Almost impossible to pick only one, but I’ll go with “Socks” by Beverly Cleary because I read it over and over. Of course, I did that with other books too. 🙂

    • HL Carpenter says:

      Oh, yes, Beverly Cleary. Ramona, anyone? 🙂 Thanks for entering, and good luck!

  2. Cheryl Rogers says:

    I loved the book, a Wrinkle in Time, still do!

  3. Difficult to choose one favorite childhood book, but I’m going to go with The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce, because that’s what came to mind when you described a favorite book above! I can still quote it, describe the hero(ine) and know how it became part of my story!

  4. Les Johnson says:

    I liked the book, Wait til Helen Comes. It was super creepy when I was younger.

    • HL Carpenter says:

      Oh! A Young Reader’s Choice award winner we haven’t read. Thanks for telling us about it.

  5. Tia says:

    My favorite was The Story of Holly and Ivy. My grandma bought it for me and I read it many times.

  6. Hmmm, I had so many. I would say that my favorite book as a child was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Ironic, as I don’t like chocolate!

    • HL Carpenter says:

      That is ironic, Clarissa! Fortunately that book is about a whole lot more than chocolate. Good luck in the drawing.

    • HL Carpenter says:

      The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play… Who can resist Dr. Seuss and his charming verse?

  8. I loved The Saddle Club series. They really lit my fire for reading, especially since I was a horse lover then (and still am).

    • HL Carpenter says:

      We’re right there in the saddle, too, S.J. And anything written by Marguerite Henry is on the list, too!

  9. Where the Wild Things Are… by Maurice Sendak. Loved the illustrations! Have fun on the hop, ladies! Hugs!

  10. My favorite book from childhood is Peter Pan. I learned to read with this book and then went on to teach my sister and friend too.

    • HL Carpenter says:

      Teaching others to read is a wonderful gift in itself, even besides the bonus of sharing your favorite book. Kudos to you!
