1960: Onion John by Joseph Krumgold – Don’t try changing weird neighbor

1961: Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell – Worth reading again as adult

1963: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle – Great book in every way

1969: The High King by Lloyd Alexander – Why was book 5 chosen?

1972: Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien – Big 80’s kid nostalgia factor

1978: Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson – Bittersweet YA story about friendship

1986: Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan – Can read in an hour

1987: The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman – Probably scar you for life
