As I consider Betsy Bird's posts of the top 100 children's books, I'm realizing that I categorize a novel as a favorite once I've read it at least five times with delight.
I tend to recycle my favorites during particular times of the year. Here are some examples that seem to fit with the seasons:
Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott
Emily of Deep Valley by Maud Hart Lovelace
Miracles on Maple Hill by Virginia Sorensen
Secret Garden by Frances H. Burnett
Thimble Summer by Elizabeth Enright
Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery
Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Which novels do you re-read?
