Show & Tell – Book A Day in May


My personal challenge to read a book a day in May has been slightly redefined this week to mean ‘starting a new book every day’, partly due to picking a slightly longer book (gotta read my library books before they’re due back!), and partly because I can’t help but read more than one book at once. Oh well.

Since last week I’ve added:

7. The Cat Who Went to Heaven by Elizabeth Coatsworth
8. Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech
9. Baker’s Magic by Diane Zahler
10. The Great Cake Mystery by Alexander McCall Smith
11. Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things by Lenore Look
12. Dessert First by Hallie Durand
13. The Wish by Gail Carson Levine


Question of the Day: What’s the first chapter book series you remember loving as a kid?

  1. Do you consider the Frog and Toad books (by Arnold Lobel) to be chapter books? Then, those are definitely etched in my memory as the first books I, personally, read by myself. (I still love Frog and Toad, BTW.)

    Otherwise, I remember the B is for Betsy series (by Carolyn Haywood). However, I have tried to re-read that book as an adult and couldn’t get through it. 😦 (IMHO, that book was written for children and, ONLY children.) Please note, that this series is completely different from the Betsy-Tacy series (by Maud Hart Lovelace) which is totally awesome! (But I didn’t read that series until I was an adult.)


    1. Aww, I LOVED Frog and Toad! I still remember the year we got a big hardcover collection for Christmas.

      I’ve been meaning to re-read Betsy-Tacy this month. It’s been so long I’ve mostly forgotten them, so it should be fun to rediscover why I loved them as a kid. 💛
