I have such memories of getting completely absorbed in books when I was a kid. Nancy Drew, Choose Your Own AdventuresThe Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, even Flowers in the Attic (remember that creepy ’80s series?) are some that stand out.  I’m still a book lover, and one of these days I am finally going to join a book club to get myself on a regular reading schedule. Yes, reading is a magical thing. As parents, I’m sure we all want our kids to share our love books, to broaden their horizons and enjoy the pure pleasure of diving into a book that makes them completely forget everything else.

If you’re interested in some practical tips on raising book lovers, I recently wrote an article titled How to raise book worms for SheKnows.com.

What were your favorite books as kids? It’s fun to order out of print books you remember from your childhood on Amazon.com and share them with your own kids.
