If you have never come across a Top Ten Tuesday, it is a weekly feature hosted over on The Broke and The Bookish. They post a different top ten topic every week, it’s pretty awesome. All the cool kids are doing it.
This week’s Top Ten is all about the Classics, however you wish to categorize that. Since I have baby on the brain (good-god-how-is-it-not-out-yet), I decided to talk about my favorite classic children’s books 🙂 I’m going to stick to the non-chapter books. What are those even called? Anyway, enjoy!
Oh, also, you’ll notice there is no Dr. Seuss on this list. That isn’t because I don’t think Seuss is classic, it totally is, I just wasn’t a huge fan when I was a kid so I am a little more biased to these ten 🙂
