Which childrens’ books do you love to re-read as an adult?

The best-reviewed film of 2017 featured a 60-year-old Peruvian bear who originated in a series of children’s books. Last year, audiences were intrigued by the life of the creator of Winnie the Pooh. And of course Harry Potter remains a mass phenomenon for grown-up readers and viewers.

We still clearly have an attachment, even as adults, to children’s books and the memories they conjure. On a chilly winter night, which children’s books do you still love to revisit? If you have kids or grandkids, which books from your own childhood do you most look forward to reading to them?

Share your favourites in the comments below, or on Twitter and Facebook under the hashtag #MondayMusing.

Later this week, join Jade Dillon for a series of lectures in Durham, looking at the significance of children’s literature in society. Details on our Facebook page.

  1. Hi there 🙂 Nice blog. I’d like to add “The Little Prince”. Although I guess it is sort of an adult book anyway – I love it that you can read it at different ages and it speaks to you differently at different stages of life experience. ❤
