Don’t Forget the Children’s Classic Books!!

Secret GardenDo you remember the classic books from your childhood? Have you thought about reading them again or reading them with your kids now? Why not download a classic to read together with your children. Bring back some favorite childhood memories that you can share.

While sitting and reading aloud with my son, I find myself overwhelmed with anticipation for him to hurry up and turn the page already!… because I either remember what was on the next page, or I completely forgot and was happily surprised, or in some cases temporarily saddened.

The titles on this list are available on the CCLD Digital Library in e-book format (I checked to make sure!). Just Search it, Click it, Download it and of course enjoy a great children’s literary classic to share with you kids and rejoice in your own youthful memory of reading as a child!!
