#T5W TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Children's Books to Read as Adults

It was my birthday yesterday (I'm 25 now?!?!), so I gave myself a break from posting heavily this week. But I still want to post another T5W just because I've grown addicted to the prompts and discussing all things books! 

For those who don't know what Top 5 Wednesday is, it's a weekly book group about our top five favorite things in the middle of the week.

Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes the top 5 children's books to read as adults. 

This week's topic: March 14: Children's Books to Read as an Adult --This one was suggested by another group member! What children's books do you think deserve revisiting as we get older?


5. The Baby-Sitters Club -  I grew up reading The BSC and I've been wanting to reread the 100+ book series (and yes, there are over 100 books! They're fast reads, I swear!) but the friendship, collaboration, business, family aspects are something a lot of adults should learn. 

4. The Boxcar Children -  The Boxcar Children is another book that's good to read, based on family and imagination. Also, the fact that these kids are living poor in a boxcar, playing pretend, may make it clearer as an adult than reading as a kid. This could show some compassion for the homeless youth in America and internationally. 

3. Nancy Drew -  Nancy Drew showed that you can be a fierce, strong female detective too! 

2. The Baby-Sitters Little Sister -  This is a spin-off of The BSC from before, but it's still a good perspective of Kristy's little stepsister, Karen. As a little sister myself, reading these made it relatable to understand how siblings interact. Especially if there's a big age gap in between the older and younger sibling. 

1. Green Eggs & Ham by Dr. Seuss -  I know what you're thinking. Dr. Seuss, really? But if you can't go wrong with Harry Potter, then you can go even further with Dr. Seuss, especially Green Eggs. This book could teach adults how to share and try new experiences. And make a new friend or two.
