My current obsession with children’s books

I have suddenly had this overwhelming urge to read children’s books….I have been wanting to catch up on all the books I never read as a child such as Narnia (I know! Shock! Horror!) & also read some Roald Dahl while in Wales. In the process of unearthing some classics I’ve discovered even more books to add to my pile! Great! Lol :D

Children’s books hold such magic & fantasy about them that it’s such a pleasure to revisit them as an adult. It’s nice to be reminded of the times when there were no limits to my imagination, anything was possible & the world was filled with wonder. I’m starting off my reading with “The Witches” by Roald Dahl, then hopefully will continue that with Narnia & another new book I just discovered “Tom’s Midnight Garden” by Philippa Pearce. There’s plenty more authors to be added to that list but I think that should sate my cravings for a while. If I thought romance was escapism, children’s books are on par!

Well I’m off to read & finish off Witches :) Let me know if you have recommendations! Would love to hear them :)
