books from my childhood

Can you remember your favorite books from your childhood? These were mine:

  • The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • The Boxcar Children series, by Gertrude Chandler Warner
  • The Babysitter’s Club series, by Ann M. Martin
  • American Girl series {particularly Molly}

These books literally define my childhood, and sometimes I’ll still think back to how great these stories were {I don’t know that they’d hold up now, but they certainly fascinated me then!} I want to go back and re-read some of these.

Do you remember these? What were your favorite books growing up?

{Edited to say… this post brought to you by reminscing in the aisles of a used bookstore in O-town, The Bookshelf. I could pick up the whole Babysitters Club collection for $3. But I think I’d rather have it remain a classic. ;)}
