Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about the books I’d love to read with my future children. To be honest, my knowledge about children’s books is rather limited because A) I don’t have any kids yet so I’m not yet in the habit of reading children’s books with them and B) I myself mostly read books by Belgian authors as a kid which will probably not be that known to you. For those reasons I decided to broaden the age of those (hypothetical) children from kid to young adult and present you a list of books I’d want them to read for a variety of reasons.
Books I enjoyed as a kid myself
I really enjoyed these books between the age of 10 and 14, so I would love to share that with any future kid. And well, it would definitely be fun to revisit these myself too!
Books that started my love of fantasy
These are a few of the series that are so much fun and so iconic, but also started my love of fantasy. I’d love to read these with my kids and witness them falling in love with these worlds and characters as well.
Books with important themes
While these topics may definitely already be for a more mature age, I think it’s important to learn about the topics and themes in these books, such homophobia, mental health, feminism, dsicrimination, prejudice and so on.
MORE Books I LOVE and think my kids Might too
Well, I love them, and I just have a feeling that my kids could love them too when they’re ready.
This is of course a list of books based on my preferences. Though I do kind of hope my kids would share my love of reading and I’d love it if they would fall in love with the same books and characters as I have, I would also not impose any book on them. If they fall in love with any other genre or type of books, that would be fine. And if they would prefer another hobby instead of reading, then that would be totally ok too! I just want them to find something they love so much as I love reading.
