Weekend Links: Have You Been Reading Kids’ Classics?

**The posts I write might contain affiliate links or be written in collaboration with businesses or brands. Please see my disclosure policy for more information.**

For the past 6 months I’ve been embarking on a personal mission to revisit and re-review some of the many children’s classic books that have graced the shelves of my bookcase for many moons. The desire to do this prompted me to created a monthly re-occurring campaign called #ReadKidsClassics (search this hashtag on Twitter and you will find all sorts of good stuff!). I’ve had some help from other amazing bloggers as well and though I intend to keep sharing until the end of the year, I thought I take a moment to revisit some of my favorite reviews thusfar:

I don’t think anyone was surprised to see what my first Read Kid’s Classics Challenge was-and I have a very good reason for picking that book! I picked this book because it was my first kid’s classic and it became my favorite friend and companion throughout my childhood, ….no, throughout my life.

What could that incredible book be? Why The Secret Garden of course.

This book also inspired me to create my A Year in The Secret Garden activity book and study guide for kids. Read more about it here.

Breaking News! Proof that Dragons are indeed REAL!

My newest book, Dragons are Real is available and the excitement is almost blowing the roof off at Jump Into a Book/Audrey Press headquarters!
Dragons are real
SO…what if I told you that all of the fairy tales, myths and legends that have been told about dragons over the years are WRONG. What if I told you that Dragons are indeed Real and that they are different than you’ve ever imagined?
This fairly true story is based on the author’s childhood friendship with a REAL live Dragon; a very special Dragon that she and her brother spent two magical summers with.

As readers turn the pages and learn the truth about Dragons, they will see that the fiercest beasts in known history can actually be the best of friends. It’s a lesson in finding companionship in the most unusual of places. Dragons are Real is a magical book filled with stunning illustrations and hints that dragon are indeed all around us 🙂

Dragons are Real is now available for purchase on both Amazon and Gumroad! We are also offering a special free bonus gift of a Dragons Are Real Inspiration Activity Guide when you purchase your copy of this enchanting picture book.

  1. I love reading classic children’s books! I have a list of all the Newbery winning and nominated books and I’m slowly working my way through it and there’s a lot of great names on it. We just finished the Chronicles of Narnia series and I think we’re going to start the Oz books soon. So far her favorite older books are anything by Beverly Cleary. She has loved every single one of them so far. We’ve read all the Ramona and the Ralph ones and a few random ones so far.

    1. Thanks a fantastic list you have. That’s the beauty of classics, they’re timeless and draw us in every single time !!!
      Happy Reading!!
