Best Books - juvenile fiction

I'm going to try to do a new thing, where I recommend a book from a certain genre that I think is a must-read--old favorites that I've read before I had my book blog.  This meme was inspired by a quote from Henry David Thoreau that says, "Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all." 

I always love to get recommendations, so I'm going to try to give a few out here and there. 

This week, my recommendation is for juvenile fiction.  This isn't young adult fiction or picture books, but what you'd find in between.  :)   

If you've never read Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, you've really got to!  This book is one that I would put on the list of books every reader should read.  The writing is wonderful and imaginative, and Anne is a character that will stay in your heart for a long time.

Anne of Green Gables can be found in many editions for purchase at Amazon.

  1. Anne of G.G. is one of my favorites. I always wanted to be spunky, yet endearing like she was. Oh well.

    I saw this quote recently as well. It goes along with Diane's 2010 challenge I'm compiling a list for:


    How about "Daddy Long Legs" by Jean Webster -- a kindred spirit to Anne.
