Hooray for classic children’s books! It’s strange because for me, 5 children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet are two E. Nesbit books that I’m most familiar with. There was a BBC series that aired when I was I child, and that got me in to the books (Granted, I had already read The Railway Children). Remembering it now, I swear The Phoenix and the Carpet was the best TV series ever…might have to see if I can track it down, though I don’t want to be disappointed watching it through grown up eyes!

Hahaha! I’ve read SO many of the “not mentioned” books!
Of the “mentioned books,” I’ve read Magic by the Lake, and I *think* Half Magic as well.
So many wonderful recommendations! I love classic children’s literature, and you mentioned a lot that I’ve never heard of. I’m looking forward to checking them out!

And that you for your lovely recommendations!

UM YOUTUBE LISTED YOUR COMMENT AS SPAM AND I SOMEHOW MISSED THIS VIDEO IM SO SORRY. Thank you for giving me this shout out! I loved how you made a point to talk about lesser known books. The books by Edward Eager sound especially interesting.

Ellen Montgomery did write Anne

Mo's Reads says:

Apparently I’ve read the mentioned rather than not mentioned Nesbit books. I love the 5 children trilogy, which I read not knowing it was a trilogy and started with book three, but apparently reading them backwards wasn’t a problem.

My personal favorite is The Little Prince.

…and my tbr list just grew. Thanks for all your recommendations.
