Classic Children's Literature Event - January 2014

Amanda at Simpler Pastimes is hosting a Classic Children's Literature Event for January 2014.  I will be reading at least two classic children's books in January and I will try to participate in The Wizard of Oz read that she has scheduled for this month.  It is one of the few well-known children's books that I haven't yet read, so I am looking forward to it!





Rules for the challenge:


~  During the month of January, read as many Children's Classics as you

    wish and post about them on your blog and/or leave a comment on the 

    event page on Amanda's blog.  She will have a link page starting the first

    of the year to gather posts so that we may share as we go.

~  The optional RAL title:  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

     She plans on discussion the weekend of January 24-26.

~  Use your own judgement for what fits the category but here are some 


            *  Read books prior to 1963.

            *  Books appropriate for approximately an elementary-school aged

                child or preteen including fairy tales.

            *  Feel free to included books from any country, in translation or not.

            *  Feel free to double up with other events or challenges if you wish.

~  There is no deadline for joining or participating (except, of course, the end 

    of January.

Most important:  Have Fun!



I will start my list here and hope to get at least 2 - 4 done by the end of the month:
