Top 10 Tuesday: Children’s Classics That Have Been on my TBR Forever

Hi all my bookworms,

How are you all keeping?

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

This week’s topic is a freebie topic, meaning that Jana, our lovely Top 10 Tuesday host, has given us a very loose topic title and let us loose with whatever we want.  This week it was a genre freebie.  Any topic you want as long as it is genre based.  For anyone that doesn’t know Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish in 2010 and switched to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018.  My chosen topic is ‘children classics that have been on my TBR forever’.

When I was quite young my grandfather saw in the newspaper that you could buy a collection of classic children’s stories.  The first was Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling and I wanted it so he subscribed to the entire series.  A series I still have to this day.  Some of the stories included in the collection I have read over the years, but there are a majority that I have still to read.  All of these are on my TBR so I thought I would share them with you.

  1. Such a fun, nostalgic list!

    I love Peter Pan and The Wind in the Willows. As you know, I haven’t read Dr Dolittle yet either. I also aspire to read more Nesbit including The Railway Children. I’ve only read Five Children and It by her and loved that the story reminded me of Narnia in many ways.

    Good luck with your list!
