Hi all, it’s Lois, hope you are doing well. I am finally back doing top 5 Wednesday! This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is all about children’s books. Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly challenge, find the Goodreads group here.
Without further ado, here are my top 5 children’s books.
1) Matilda by Roald Dahl
“Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true. At age five-and-a-half she’s knocking off double-digit multiplication problems and blitz-reading Dickens. Even more remarkably, her classmates love her even though she’s a super-nerd and the teacher’s pet. But everything is not perfect in Matilda’s world. For starters she has two of the most idiotic, self-centered parents who ever lived. Then there’s the large, busty nightmare of a school principal, Mrs. (“The”) Trunchbull, a former hammer-throwing champion who flings children at will and is approximately as sympathetic as a bulldozer. Fortunately for Matilda, she has the inner resources to deal with such annoyances: astonishing intelligence, saintly patience, and an innate predilection for revenge.”
I have to include this book. This book was my favourite as a child and as the years have gone by I have read it over and over. It contains so many good messages and is very well written.
2) Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
“It’s a new school year, and Greg Heffley finds himself thrust into middle school, where undersized weaklings share the hallways with kids who are taller, meaner, and already shaving. The hazards of growing up before you’re ready are uniquely revealed through words and drawings as Greg records them in his diary.”
I used to get the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series at Christmas. I always got the new book in the series on Christmas day. I always finished it within 2 hours on Christmas morning. I used to love these books and still have them in my house somewhere.
3) Nelly the Monster Sitter by Kes Gray
“Nelly’s monster-sitting adventures continue with three new unpredictable and exciting monster families!”
These are another series of books I used to love as a child. I remember sitting with them in bed and reading them into the late hours of the night.
I might even reread this book series very soon just because they used to make me smile a lot.
There you have it, this weeks Top 5 Wednesday, children’s books. I know there isn’t 5 books on this list but I didn’t want to just include Roald Dahl books! Comment below your favourite children’s books as well as links to your T5w!
