February Link-Up: Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge 2017 (Books You Loved in Childhood)

Today marks the end of the second month of the Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge, which focused on childhood favorites. If you reviewed or otherwise posted about an "Old School" childhood favorite (or multiple favorites) this month,  please leave a comment below with a link so other participants can see what you read. (Remember - a book is considered "old school" if it was published in the decade of your birth or before.)

I read four books for the challenge this month:

Tomorrow, I'll be introducing the March theme, Books Published Prior to 1945.  


  1. I re-read Anne of Avonlea, Alice In Wonderland, and Through The Looking Glass...but I didn't have time to read The Secret Garden, which was my #1 childhood favorite. No link this time, but the challenge is fun! @oneaponceatime

  2. I re-read The Tanglewoods' Secret by Patricia St. John: https://thebeckoninghills.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/book-review-tanglewoods-secret-1948.html

  3. I reread Little Man by Louisa May Alcott. I went on about it for three blog posts. Part III includes links to Parts I and II. http://blog.gailgauthier.com/2017/02/little-men-reread-part-iii-writing.html

  4. I read five books:
    Umbrella by Taro Yashima, Millions of Cats by Wanda Gag, Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey, Hand, Hand, Fingers Thumb by Al Perkins, and Mandy by Julie Andrews Edwards

    1. All great choices! Mandy is on my to-read list for later this year.
