1. Amelia Bedelia


2. Little House picture books


3. Encyclopedia Brown


4. Cam Jansen


5. Boxcar Children


6. In Grandma's Attic


7. Beezus and Ramona


8. The Secret of the Ruby Ring

Granted, it has been a while since I have read any of these titles, but I look forward to introducing them to my children! I wonder if they will hold the same magic now that I am an adult?;)

  1. I'm not sure that I ever finished the 'Little House' books. But if I remember right, I did like what I read. And of course, we watched the show - it was a favorite TV show of ours growing up. :)

    1. It was one of the first series I read as a kid! I need to pull the first one out and start reading it aloud to my kids.;)
      I watched a couple of episodes, but I was a book purist back then and didn't like that they veered from the original story.😆

  2. Yes I loved Beezus and Romona!
    My favorite children's book was Molly the American Girl.
    I guess that's where my love of history started.
    Great list!

    1. The American Girl books were wonderful too! I look forward to reading those with my daughter too.;) Molly was a favorite, though they were all interesting.

  4. Oh, my first comment didn't publish I commented on how much I liked the Ramona books and wondered a loud if the author was still living.

  5. I haven't read any of these books but I have heard of a few of them :) When I was a kid I read mostly British childrens authors but I did read Judy Blume's Fudge series at school :)

  7. Dang! The Witch of Blackbird pond (on the cover) looks like she's in a YA dating book! LOL. Oh those cover updates! Superb list!

  8. I've actually never read any of these on your list. However, I've always heard amazing things on the Little House books and Judy Blume's work. Aren't The Boxcar Children series still ongoing? I think there's over a hundred books in that series; can you believe it? Great list! Happy reading!

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday!

    1. I didn't realize they are still going, but it does look like there is now 145 of them. I kind of wonder at a series that goes that long.;) I remember loving Nancy Drew when I was a kid, but they are a bit formulaic.;)
