Chatterbox: Blab About Books

Little kid books
That somehow are...

That somehow are just so so good.


When I'm bored I go to my younger sisters room and read one of her books. They're just so comforting and so funny. Am I the only one? My favorite ones to read are Junie B Jones, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and one you may not have heard of: The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary.

I totally agree. And I actually love The Fabled Fourth Graders of Aesop Elementary.

Also the Clementine series and the 39 Clues and this book called The Waffler.

Ohmygosh!!! I was actually thinking of making thread along these lines a couple weeks ago but I forgot! That's so weird. Anyway I love Diary of a Wimpy Kid too, but my favorite "little kid books" are the Ivy & Bean series! I really gotta applaud the authors of that book for making it hilarious and interesting for 2nd graders but somehow still good and not cringy for a 7th grader to read.

Toys Go Out by Emily Jenkins. My mom read them to me when I was like... 3-4? And I still love them. 10/10 would recommend

Oh my gosh, I love Toys Go Out! It was one of my favorite books as a kid. My family had the audiobook and we listened to it over and over. It's so good. I should really reread it.

I don't know if anyone's heard of this, but: Mercy Watson!!!! I read it when I was in maybe first grade, sooo good. Also, my sister read The Boxcar Children and loved them, but she refused to read them out of order.

The Magic Treehouse series! I LOVED those books when I was a kid. The first one in the series was the first chapter book I ever read by myself. I also learnt a lot about history from them (unknowingly of course, I thought I was just reading a good book and certinaly not learning history, that would've sounded too much like school). And yes if I'm having a bad day I will go and reread one of them.

This book is not a series, but I love it so much! It is a story told in poem called Applesauce Weather. It is very nice to read on a crisp autumn day!

I  wonder if, in a way, we like these books so much because we wish we could do all that stuff little kids do that we secretly think is fun. Maybe I'm speaking for myself, but I miss all that kind of thing.
