Welcome to Day 5! It’s the final day before we close up and announce the winners, so hurry up and enter the giveaway! Remember what’s at stake:
And there will also be a second and third prize if we get enough entries, so invite your friends and family! 🙂
Today the genres are (as you saw by the title) ‘middle grade’ and ‘picture books!’ I have a lot of favorite books in these genres, so let’s get going with my top five! 🙂
I don’t know why, but this is my absolute favorite Beverly Cleary book! I suppose because Henry is a paperboy in this one (childhood dream job … 😄 ) and because of the Halloween chapter, and, of course, the clubhouse … though I have a clubhouse. I just didn’t make it with my friends… 😛
This is one of the best books ever! My mom read it to my little brothers and me over the summer a couple years back … and it’s amazing! The boys loved it, I loved it … I’ve reread it several times back! My favorite character is Skye. Or Jane. Or Rosalind. Or Batty. Or Mr. Penderwick. Or Hound. Or Jeffrey. Or Churchie …
If you haven’t read this book, then go get a copy. Now. It is sooo hilarious. It is anything but your average mistreated-orphan story! Trust me. It’s amazing!
This is a fantastic, alm0st-non-fantasy, fantasy book! 😀 As with Hale’s other stories, the magic seems so real you don’t even realize it’s there. 🙂
This is definitely one of my favorite children’s books. I still read it over and cry and laugh and smile. It’s such a touching story! Read my review here.
This one is so amazingly beautiful! I love the message … making the world more beautiful can be as simple as planting flowers. 😀
Awesome illustrations … and yes, I do want a family that big. 🙂
My all-time favorite book when I was three or four. 🙂
Great story! I love little bear. 🙂
Great story! Also a good way to teach kids the seasons in my opinion … 😛
Today I’m the bonfire room! With that nip in the air, I can’t wait to start a fire … we haven’t yet this year, but we will soon! 🙂
