 Ah! There's nothing like the feeling of flying along on a bike in the crisp, autumn air is there? Like riding a bike, childhood favorites give you a feeling you won't ever forget.

1. All The Places to Love by Patricia MacLachlan
My Mom read this book out loud to us so many times, I can probably still recite it. This was one of Mom's favorite books and it became one of mine. The pictures are amazing and the story is so sweet.  I think it was my first childhood favorite.

2.  The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton
Of all the picture books I read, I remember this one most of all. I loved the pictures in this one and spent a lot of time looking at the details, noticing the changes from page to page. It's a cute story too.

3. The Courage of Sarah Noble by Alice Dalgliesh
This is the first book I remember reading over and over when I was young. The girl and I shared a name. And with this cover, she even looked like me at the age I was reading it. It fed my love for history, girls being brave, and my interest in different cultures.

4. In Grandmothers Attic by Arleta Richardson
I don't know how many times I read this series, but it was a lot. I have early memories of my Mom reading this book and us learning about the real places that Mabel lived. While fiction, the stories were based on stories Richardson's grandmother told her. My sisters and I still talk about the stories here.

5. Sarah's Journey Series by Wanda Luttrell
In my tweens and early teens, I read this series probably ten times. Not only did the main character and I share a name, but I was affected spiritually by this book. In Home on Stoney Creek, Sarah is always wanting what she doesn't have and hurts her family with her bad attitude. I felt like this book helped me in a lot of ways deal with the bad attitudes that were rooted in my heart.
