Given the opportunity to choose and share her favorite books, E jumped right on it. Of course, she has the same affliction that I do; she enjoys books. A LOT! I probably should have made her narrow down her choices but I know how hard that is. Each book is like an old friend that you enjoy spending time with. So, her list is large and long. But, done with pictures – well – it isn’t so bad. If her book is part of a series, I have tried to make a comment under it so that you know.
This is a series published by American Girl. There are a number of different girls that each have their own set of books. This one is Isabelle but she also enjoys Saige, Caroline, Kanani, and the others.
She enjoys a lot of the variants of different stories. These are some of the Cinderella stories from around the globe.
There are a few of these books. I know there is a Green Princess and a Pink Princess. I don’t know if there are others.
This fairly new series is kind of interesting. The creature in each book is a combination of two or more characters from older stories and tales.
Dear America is a series of books written as diaries. These are two that we own but we borrow this series from the library often.
A series of books about Emily Windsnap, a young girl who finds out that she is part mermaid.
The Mandie series has over 40 books in it. This young lady has lots of adventures, has an interesting background, and is fun and enjoyable. I have also enjoyed reading this series, though I haven’t read as many as E has.
A series of 3 books, as far as I know.
The Chronicles of Narnia has been a beloved read-aloud between the girls and their dad. They love this series quite a bit.
E really likes reading the books by Patricia Polacco. She likes the pictures as much as the stories.
There are bunches of books in the Rainbow Magic group of books. They are a pretty fun, easy early chapter book series.
Again, she loves fairy tales and these are just a couple of the Rapunzel stories that we have.
This is a favorite book that was written by a young lady we know and is a gift that has been treasured by our family.
The Sisters Grimm is a 9 book series about two sisters who are part of the Grimm family line. They have lots of adventures. This has some scary parts in the series so it might be one to pre-read for a younger child. That being said – this is one of her very favorite book series.
Again, legends are a favorite for E. She enjoys the types of legends retold and illustrated by Tomie dePaola. Any Tomie dePaola book are on her list. These are the ones she picked for pictures.
So – that concludes E’s favorites for this time. Because fairy tales and legends are some of E’s favorite reads, I would like to know: what is your favorite fairy tale or legend? Please share your favorites with us in the comments section. We would love to find some new ones to read together. At Home.
