Beth and Chrissi do Kid-Lit or…. Revisiting childrens classics!

Published January 10, 2013 by bibliobeth

THE CHALLENGE:

For Beth and Chrissi (chrissireads.wordpress.com) who are sisters, bloggers and book fiends to read a classic piece of childrens literature for every month of 2013. We are defining the word classic  as “a book we enjoyed when we were knee high to a grasshopper or can imagine enjoying if we were STILL knee high to a grasshopper!” Any excuse to revisit my youth…

THE BOOKS:

JANUARY – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

FEBRUARY – The Water Babies – Charles Kingsley

MARCH – The Phantom Tollbooth – Norton Juster

APRIL – Stig of the Dump – Clive King

MAY – Heidi – Johanna Spyri

JUNE – A Little Princess – Frances Hodgson Burnett

JULY – Charlotte’s Web – E.B. White

AUGUST – The Children of the New Forest – Frederick Marryat

SEPTEMBER – A Wrinkle in Time – Madeleine L’Engle

OCTOBER – Oliver Twist – Charles Dickens

NOVEMBER – Northern Lights/The Golden Compass – Philip Pullman

DECEMBER – The Railway Children – E.Nesbit

Reviews will be posted on here by the usual process and I will also be linking to Chrissi’s reviews in my own. Let the reading begin!
