Whenever I think about my reading journey, I always look back to the earliest books that I fell in love with. 💖
Here are the top 5 favorite books that I read during my childhood:
1. American Girl
I absolutely loved the American Girl Historical Collection books. My personal favorites were Kaya (Native America), Kit (The Great Depression), and Samantha (Progressive Era). 🇺🇲 These series spurred my love for history and reading because I learned about different experiences of girls my age at different eras in American history.
2. The Amazing Days with Abby Hayes
Next up is The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes series! This series was super fun, and Abby was so relatable to elementary school Tiffany. 😂 These books also inspired me to start journaling and normalized the idea that everyone has bad days and internal struggles.
3. Candy Apple
The Candy Apple series was super fun and girly which my preteen self really enjoyed. They were quick to read yet super sweet with its universal messages of falling for our first crushes, making long-lasting friendships, and surviving school! 💕
4. Charlotte’s Web
If you didn’t know, my favorite animal is the pig. 🐷 I think they’re super adorable and smart! Reading Charlotte’s Web in elementary school taught me so much about the beauty of unsuspecting friendships and life’s adventures. 🐖
5. Tuck Everlasting
Lastly, we have Tuck Everlasting. 💧 This was one of the more serious books I read during my childhood. It made me think a lot about family and the importance of living life. What would you do if you could live forever?
