The adorable Erin @ Raised Reading did a fun meme a few weeks ago. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to tweak it and use it for a series of Top Five Tuesday posts. I’m going to attempt a top five bookish list for all 26 letters of the alphabet (this could get a little dicey towards the end!).
Read “A” here.
Picture Book – Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban, illustrated by Lillian Hoban. Y’all, I adore the Frances books! The songs Frances invents reminds me of my own children.
Middle Grade Book – The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket. Don’t let Mr. Snicket fool you – this is a hilarious first book in one of my favorite Middle Grade series!
YA or Adult Book – Beauty by Robin McKinley. This retelling of Beauty and the Beast is very Disney-esque, but it was written 13 years before the Disney cartoon was released!
TBR – The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King. It’s the further adventures of Sherlock Holmes!
Author – Sandra Boynton. Her board books are the absolute best books for the very smallest of children. I’m sad that my littles are almost too old. 😦
