A customer today was taking out Roald Dahl's, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for her son. Which got us talking about the nostalgic factor these children books bring for us. Having said that she was looking forward to reading the book again got me thinking about some of the children's books that I loved as a kid that I would like to reaquaint myself with.
Of course, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory brought me great joy as I had always wanted a golden ticket to that magical factory! How could you not love edible chocolate rooms, chocolate bars that come out of your tv set, and cavity-filling caramels (something adults would probably appreciate more).
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White was actually my favourite book as a child, to this day I still enjoy reading my tattered well used copy I had recieved back in grade 1! Quite odd though considering that I have a fear of spiders , but Charlotte the spider was one I'd never shy away from. Maybe it was because of adorable Wilbur the pig who's life is spared by the brave Fern.
Sound off and let us know about your favourite children's book that you would love to read over and over again!
