Oh yes, Heidi. It's such a lovely story.
I also loved the images of her making her bed up on the soft hay, and the cheese being warmed up on bread over the fire.
Gee, there's an early reference to food in literature which I've never forgotten. emoticon

Even thinking about the books I read as a child bring back memories! I loved -
Little House on the Prairie
The Babysitter's Club
Anne of Green Gables
Heidi
Ronald Dahl books
Judy Blume books

My son is six and I am reading to him some of the books I loved as a child. I love re-living it all over again!

I remember The Indian in the Cupboard! That was a great story. Charlotte's Web was definitely a favorite too.

- Anne of Green Gables
- James and the Giant Peach
- The Indian in the Cupboard

I read alot of the same books my Dad did, we'd trade books back and forth. Lots of Robert Ludlum, James Patterson, Michael Crichton and etc. I also enjoyed Archie comics and I was always reading as a kid, but no authors strike me as memorable.

Comics, newspapers, the TV Guide and subtitled films - and The Bumper Book of Nonsense Verse, oh yes, and anything by Dr Suess.

I didn't read novels much - my sister did all that (Nancy Drew, The Worst Witch) and we both read my mother's Fontana Horror books. I discovered biographies when I was 11 and never looked back!

The films I watched influenced my reading books at school - I only read Great Expectations because I'd seen the film (David Lean 1946).

As a child I loved just about any books I could get my hands on...Little Women was one of my favorites that I read at least 3 times before the age of 10.
Another favorite was The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery.

I also loved to read biographies. (Still do)

I could write a book about this subject (LOL).
Since I was a child I loved, not just reading, but books themselves.
Each little Beatrix Potter book was and is a treasure to me. I love the tiny size, the illustrations, and the glossy paper they're printed on.
I read tons of Nancy Drew in the summer. A book a day at times. (Maybe that's why I think summer is a perfect time for reading mysteries.)
The Little House series was a favorite, but I also liked other kinds of books. I remember, in particular, Men of Medicine and Men, Microscopes, and Living Things, and biographies of people like Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman doctor, Albert Schweitzer, and Albert Einstein.
One thing is for certain, I always had a book going.

We all became literature addicts through many years of reading or writing.

What did you love to read (or write) as a child?
