Since beginning to participate in the Children's Classics Carnival at 5 Minutes for Books, I have a new-found love for children's classics and have realized there are some that I missed the first time around. Keeping that in mind, my Thursday Thirteen list for this week consists of 13 children's classics I would like to read.
1. Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving
2. Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
3. Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham
4. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
5. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
6. The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm
7. Heidi by Johanna Spryi
8. Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
9. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
10. Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
11. Pollyanna by Eleanor Porter
12. Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling
13. Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers
The Thursday Thirteen is a weekly meme. Every Thursday you pick a theme and post a list of 13 related items. To read more Thursday Thirteen lists or to participate, click here.
