Winter Reading

Winter is the season when I find myself re-reading my favorite books. Most of my favorites fall into the category of "Children's Classics." I think winter is the season that is most conducive to reading. After all, reading in winter is so cozy. It's cold outside. It's often windy and rainy. What could be more perfect than curling up under a blanket with a good book and a cup of tea? I'm currently re-reading The Borrowers series by Mary Norton. In this winter season, I encourage you to rediscover your favorite books.

Here's the books I'll likely re-read this winter:
Heidi by Johanna Spyri
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster
anything by L. M. Montgomery

I might also re-read some new favorites:
Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse
The Wedding Planner's Daughter and The Cupid Chronicles by Coleen Murtagh Paratore
The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick
anything by Joan Bauer

Happy Winter Reading!

That looks like a great list Bridget!

I'm embarrassed to say that I need to read a lot of books on your list...for the first time.

I missed the classics as a kid....(it's sad I know!)
