We talk a lot on blogs about books we love. I mean, that's the point, right? And it's awesome.
But I'm curious... in a devil's advocate kind of way...
What are the kids' books you DIDN'T love? What are the ones you just didn't care about enough to read? What books do you hate reading aloud?
I'll start with a double-whammy confession--
**I've never read any of the Little House books or the Anne of Green Gables books**
Shocking, I know. But for whatever reason, they just never interested me. In fact, they still don't. I am brilliantly apathetic. It's weird.
You know what else? I hate reading The Cat in the Hat. I really do. That thing is a beast to read aloud. I also hate the Curious George books. The old originals are just so.... well, old. The wording drives me nuts reading aloud. I got rid of most of them when I cleaned out the kids' books last week.
I know, someone somewhere is going to burn me in effigy for all this, but it's just the way it is.
What "classics" do you actively avoid??
