Thursday Thirteen: Edition # 20

My Favorite Kids/Pre-Teen Series Book

I've always been an reader since I was kid. And then going from pre-teen to adult, I still read today. Thanks to school, I weren't be able to order books from them when the library decided to have "Books Order Day", which is when all elementary students can go and see what books interested them and then place an order that same day. I always look forward to get my new books handed to me at my desk. I get excited. That was the years, when I knew I am a reader. Here are the list of my favorite series books. Notice if you click on titles it take you to books, authors or information website.

1. Nursery Rhymes books/Fairy Tale Book
2. The Little Golden Books
3. Dr Seuss series Books by Ted Seuss Geisel
4. The Harold(purple crayon) series by Crockett Johnson
5. Curious George series by Margret and H. A. Rey
6. Amelia Bedelia series by Peggy Parish/Herman Parish
7. Ramona Quimby series collection by Beverly Cleverly
8. Encyclopedia Brown series by Donald J. Sobol
9. The Fudge Series by Judy Blume
10. Litte House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder
11. Anne of Green Gable series by Lucy Maud Montgomery
12. Sweet Valley series (kids,high,twin) by Francine Pascal
13. The Babysitting Club series by Ann Matthews Martin

Melody said...

Great list, Julia!
I read Nancy Drew during my elementary school days. ;P She was a great heroine IMO then. Hehe.

kat said...

Quite a few of your books are on my list too hehe. I loved the Sweet Valley twins series, as well as Anne of Green Gables. I didn't get to read much of The Babysitter's Club though. It wasn't that popular here hehe. The others I read as excerpts in the books of my dad's hometown library. I did read some of Judy Blume's books specifically, "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret".

And I have to agree with Melody on Nancy Drew ahaha.

Melody said...

Oh yeah, I forgot about the Sweet Valley twins! Thanks for bringing that up, Kat! :D

Julia said...

Well girls (Melody and Kat) I never heard of Nancy Drew until years later. By then I was busy getting into other books LOL! I have love Judy Blume singles titles too. I read them all...

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you both have nice day!

Darla said...

Ah, the little golden books--that was always my treat for sitting quietly in the grocery cart while shopping--which no doubt explains why I had so many of them!

I never read Dr. Seuss as a kid--my mom thought they were stupid. LOL I read them to my kids, though.

We already talked about Ramona and Nancy Drew. :)

I loved Curious George and Encyclopedia Brown. It's funny, I was never into horses the way so many girls are, but I loved the Black Stallion series. And the Wizard of Oz series. And there were a couple of kids' mystery series I liked--5 Little Hollisters, maybe?

Jane said...

Great list. I read the Little Golden Books to my children as well as Dr. Seuss and many of the others mentioned.
My T13 is up.

Mom not Mum said...

Great list - you can't forget all of Roald Dahl's books!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Ramona!!! I tried reading Ramona to the kids, but they like Junie B. Jones better. I tried convincing them that part of the fun of Ramona is how outdated the books are (I mean, who uses blueing anymore???), but they didn't get it. *sigh*

#2's starting to get into Little House. I'm all for it.

Anonymous said...

I loved Ramona -- I also loved Little House, Harriet the Spy, Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, C. S. Lewis's stories, Madeleine L'Engle's stories, so many, and Charlotte's Web was my absolute favorite of them all. :)

What a great list! Happy TT to you, and thanks for visiting mine.

Angela/SciFiChick said...

One of my favorites was The Giving Tree.. great titles!

Alyssa Goodnight said...

I've recently fallen back in love with The Golden Books. And I think I read every Encyclopedia Brown ever written.

Great list!

Christine said...

My kids love Dr. Seus books and Curious George books are real cute too. I must have read all of the Nancy Drew books.

Great list.

Happy Thursday, Julia!

Christine d'Abo said...

I read everything by Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary. I also loved the Trixie Bleden books. I think I read every single one.

Julia said...

Darla - You mean you still kept your Little Golden Books? I forgotten about 5 Little Hollisters and Wizard of Oz! Love those too :) I know you and I share some common in books ;) :)

Jane - Thanks for stopping by, it always great to start your children early on reading :)

Mom not Mum - Who or what was Roald Dahl? Never mind I should go do search on it *grin*

Susan - LOL but it was worth an try. Some children probably don't understand it but I guess they were going by today times, since time have changed *shrug* :)

Thommas Lyn - I forgot about Harriet the Spy...but probably got into her late. I also love Charolette Web -- just didn't mention it since most books I list were series :)

Angela - Never heard of The Given Tree ...maybe I should go check that out :)

Alyssa - The Encyclopedia Brown were great! The Little Golden Books were the first books that got me to read :)

Christine - I thought they were interesting characters to read. You have a Happy Thursday too!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. Your compliments are appreciated. hope you have good day :)

Julia said...

Christine OOPs I miss your comment - sorry! I read everything by Judy Blume and Beverly Clearly too. I think they were my favorite authors. If you click on the titles from the list, you see the old book covers. Plus information on the authors. I find interesting stuff there. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good day!

Di said...

I loved Amelia Bedelia when I read it to my kids and when I read it myself. My daughter did the whole Sweet Valley and Babysitter Club thing.

Julia said...

Di - I think you are the first person to say to loved Amelia Bedelia. I haven't heard anyone liking her books ;)

Thanks for stopping by :)

Great list, btw. I remember reading Sweet Valley series but I've forgotten how the stories go... Must be old age!
