It’s Friday (yay!) Today’s Classic Remarks topic: What children’s classic couldn’t you read enough when you were growing up?
When I was in elementary school I could not get enough of Dr. Seuss! I would bring home Dr. Seuss books from the school library on a regular basis to read with my mom. After a while I think she got tired of being tongue tied and suggested I try another author. So I started bringing home Roald Dahl books instead (so much for not being tongue tied!)
So I’ll say The Lorax and The BFG were my favorites when I was really young. Here are two quotes from each:
The Lorax: I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.
The BFG: “Words,” he said, “is oh such a twitch-tickling problem to me all my life.”
What was your favorite classic children’s book as a kid?
