We all have fond memories of books we loved as kids like Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys books or the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Here are a few slightly less well-known books that are still great!
1. Old Fashioned Friendship
I adored the Betsy, Tacy and Tib series when I was a kid and I am sure your children will love this charming set of books about three childhood friends and their adventures.
“Stand Back” Said the Elephant, “I’m Going to Sneeze!” is a fun and funny read aloud book to add to your child’s library.
3. In the Pink
I coveted my sister’s copy of this wonderfully illustrated book about a girl with a messy room. Thank goodness The Big Tidy-Up is back in print!
4. It’s Elementary!
Kids can learn analytical thinking from reading the Encyclopedia Brown boy detective series. The books are now an updated classic and a great deal in a boxed set.
6. Magical Mischief
These books about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and the adventures she has in her upside-down house have been a hit with children for over 50 years. Still available and still hilarious!
7. If You Lived in a Tree…
I wanted to grow up to have a house just like the one in Miss Twiggley’s Tree. This book has a wonderful message about sharing that you can impart to your kids.
