Top Five Wednesday- Children’s Books to Read as an Adult

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme run by Thoughts on Tomes and Ginger Reads Lainey. The Goodreads group is linked here.

I’ve mentioned this before, but though I liked reading as a kid, not only do I not really remember what I read (other than A Light in the Attic which I won’t be adding to the list you’re welcome) but I didn’t read many children classic books and such. So most of these will be movies that were adapted from books… yup 🙂 .

T5W 6.4


I didn’t read this one, but I re-watched this movie a thousand times. It was magical, I could see myself in Matilda and it was a cute movie.,






Charlotte’s Web

It’s funny as a kid, the ending didn’t make me sad and all of the human parts bored me, but again— I re-watched this one many times. I could talk about the themes and the messages, but kid me didn’t notice those. Looking back now, I can definitely see why this is a classic.





Little Women

I actually read this when I was 8 and really liked it (though I don’t remember what happened now… I need to re-read it) The family relationship and the closeness between the sisters is something I remember really liking seeing as my siblings are 10+ years older than me ¯\_()_/¯





Dr. Seuss

For my birthday, my grandmother gave me a bunch of Dr. Seuss books. I know a lot of peoples favorite is The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham, but mine is And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street. It’s the one I re-read even today.





The Giver

This one was a middle school requires read, but it’s a book I think about even now. The ending was the first introduction to open endings beginning my love for them.





Talk to Me

I have a question that I’d really like to know the answer to: What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I love Charlotte’s Web so much! and any Roald Dahl book haha. I briefly remember reading The Giver and my favourite Dr. Suess book is probably Oh, The Places You’ll Go 🙂

  2. YES! Little Women is a book I believe that should be read both as a child AND as an adult. You learn different lessons and find different truths at different times in your life. I’ve already read it twice myself (and one day… I’m sure I will again!) Also… you make me want to re-read Charlotte’s Web now, as an adult. That could be a fun one!

    Would you be interested in joining my L. M. Alcott reading challenge this June? (+ there’s a giveaway!) Details are on my blog…
