Central Library have been asking readers to nominate their favourite childhood books recently, and it’s striking how many of these titles are still popular today.
Or is it?
As this article points out, children’s books are very often written to be read again and again, and parents and grandparents love sharing the books they enjoyed as kids with their own wee ones. So it’s maybe not so surprising that certain children’s titles have such longevity.
So, what your favourite childhood book? Is it one which has been nominated already, or maybe it’s something a little more unusual?
Let us know – we’d love to hear from you.
