Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by Jamie over at The Broke and The Bookish. The feature was created because Jamie is loves lists, and this weeks theme is:
November 14: Top Ten Books I Want My Future Children to Read (Or nieces and nephews, Godchildren, etc.)
This week I’m doing books I think should be handed down to children to read. Whether they’re your kids, your friend’s, your sisters, or your neighbour’s, these books will bring them joy and show them humanity, morals, and emotions at their finest.
Some of these are for slight younger children and some for older, but all are books I read and loved as a child. True story: Six Dinner Six was my favourite book as a child, but my parents accidentally got rid of it when they were clearing our loft out last year. I still have such fond memories that I asked them to buy me a new copy for Christmas. They laughed at first, but eventually realised I was serious, and now I have a new copy sitting on my shelves.
What are some of the books you’d recommend for children just getting into reading? Did you read any of these when you were younger (and do you still read any of them now)? Let me know!

We share four of the same authors. I expect Roald Dahl will be on plenty of lists this week and Harry Potter. I love the Dr Seuss books – they still make me smile.
How could I forget about Elmer? That was a go-to read for me when I was a kid. I would hate it if my parents got rid of my favourite childhood book, The Foxwood Tales, so I’ve literally kept it on my bookshelf so no harm can come to it haha.
