Please tell me they still have summer reading clubs at public libraries. Please!! I hope they do. All I can say is I rocked those. My mission each summer (besides running around causing outside chaos with my cousins and siblings) was to read a ton of books, so I would win prizes at the local library. I was ballin on a budget back then.
I’m moving in the next few weeks, so the OCD in me is already organizing and boxing up what I can. Going through my library, I came across the books I’ve kept from grade school and Jr. High. This discovery made me smile. I loved these books (I guess keeping them for 20 years says something). I think I might re-read them just for kicks. You know how those nostalgia days can go.
If you have young kids who are just getting into reading, I highly recommend these. Take them back a couple of decades.
Here’s the official Books and Beverages favorite Children’s book list:
- A Separate Peace
- The Outsiders
- The Indian in the Cupboard
- Bright Star, Black Dawn
- Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry
- A Murder for Her Majesty
- Stuart Little
- The Jolly Christmas Postman
- The Land I Lost
- Sideways Stories from Wayside School
- My Teacher is an Alien
Do you remember any of these? What are some other 80’s/90’s classics?
