Take ten: books I want my kids to read

This post contains affiliate links.

1. The Chronicles of Narnia

Are you surprised this on is on here? lol. We've kind of started on this one with the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I will probably wait to read the others with them.

2. Harry Potter

Another one we will wait to read, but I look forward to reading these with my kids!

3. Lord of the Rings

Are you sensing a nerd theme?

4. Little House on the Prairie

I should start reading these aloud, since I loved them as a girl!

5. All of a Kind Family

Another of my childhood favorites that I can't wait to share with my children!

6. Molly

I loved all the American Girl books, but Molly was my favorite.

7. Little Women

8. Jo's Boys

This one might be one more to my son's liking.:)

9. Eight Cousins

It's been forever since I picked this one, but I loved it when I was a kid!

10. The Scarlet Pimpernel

Another one I should re-read before we read together (though, we have a while with this one!)

I went with books for older kids, since we read a lot of board and picture books. It will be some time before we tackle this list though.
What books should I add to the list?


  1. Molly and Kit were my favorite American Girls!

    1. Kit is another good one! I found a Kit doll for a good price, second hand, for my daughter, so we will be reading her story before long.;)

  2. Why didn't I think of Narnia? Those are such good books!
    Great list!

    1. Thank you! Narnia makes just about every list possible for me.;)

  3. Narnia is a great choice! :-) So many amazing books.

  4. Love that you have Little Women on your list as well. And The Little House series sounds amazing too. For a non-native English speaker like me, it's a lot of fun o catch up on English children's literature now that I'm older xD So thanks for the inspiration :)

    1. You should read the Little House books, if you haven't, since it is such a great series about the pioneer days. I look forward to re-reading them.;)

  5. Yes! The Little House books were my life when I was a kid. They are one of the very few books/series I've read more than once. I actually still have the complete boxed set my mom gave me for Christmas when I was 10.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    1. I have my old box set too! I need to pull it out and see if it will work to read it aloud to the kids, or if it would be better to borrow the hard back versions from the library.

  6. Some great choices here. I didn't read the entire Little House series growing up. I think I stopped at book four or five.

  7. My future children will definitely be reading Harry Potter. Everybody should read that series.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Yes! I didn't get into it until I was an adult and missed out.;)
