Forgotten Favorites in Youth Literature
Are you looking for Children and Young Adult books that are worth reading? You’ve come to the right place! I have a master list of over 700 titles to share. My purpose with this blog is to share book titles that most parents today have either forgotten about or never heard of in the first place. I have a degree in English Literature, I’m a mother of five, grandmother of eight and homeschooled my children for 15 years. Our family read hundreds of books together over the past 30+ years. I hope you’ll join me as we remember the best that Youth Literature has to offer.
