Books I Grew With #2

A fellow Tweeter asked if we could recall books we’d reading while a child.
I said I’d name them, and from that came my earlier post.
After that post went live, suddenly the horde of titles from then and onward
came in such a dam-busting flood, I’ve taken time to sort them, if only for myself.
… So, here they are, by author/publisher, as appropriate.

Little Golden Books:

  • Suzie’s New Stove – The Little Chef’s Cookbook
  • The Poky Little Puppy
  • The Little Book
  • Hansel and Gretel
  • Heidi
  • Bambi
  • The Three Bears
  • The Three Little Kittens
  • Tootle the Train
  • The Sweet Potato Vine
  • Scuffy the Tugboat
  • The Shy Little Kitten
  • The New Baby
  • The Twins
  • Duck and His Friends

And also…

  • Cole’s Funny Picture Book 1 available here, & 2 (also 3, but that was fairly dreadful)
  • Paul White: The Jungle Doctor series
  • L E Richards: Elizabeth Fry, The Angel of the Prisons
  • Alan Burgess: The Small Woman (the story of Gladys Aylward)
  • Eric Williams: The Wooden Horse, & The Tunnel

  • Thomas Cahill: “Hinges of History” series:  How the Irish Saved Civilisation, The Gift of the Jews, Desire of the Everlasting Hills, Sailing the Wine-Dark Seas, Mysteries of the Middle Ages, and separately, A Saint on Death Row

Quite a mixed bag, yes? Obviously  I’ve not listed the books I’ve read to review or while editing. They would include sweet romance, crime, fantasy, futurism, horror … by authors from around the world.
