It’s Time to Reread Your Childhood Favorites

Rereading your favorite books from childhood can help you learn a lot about yourself. Some of the books you loved when you were little will turn out to be amazing, while others will disappoint you, but it’s all a part of personal growth.

If you, like millions of people around the world right now, are stuck at home with not much to do right now, returning to some of the books you used to love as a kid may be a fun thing to do. You’ll probably find that some of these books shaped the person you are today and you’ll definitely learn a thing or two about why you are who you are.

Rereading “reminds us that we can experience something intensely and not be seeing everything at the time. And going back, we see something different,” said English professor from Yale Jill Campbell for The Atlantic. She notes that rereading allows you to analyze books that had an impact on you but also to think about your own life as you do it.

A #bookreview just before the weekend✨ Watership Down by Richard Adams is one of the most loved Children’s classic and I can absolutely see why. Set in Southern England, it follows a group of rabbits escape the safety of their old warren convinced that some evil is coming to destroy it. Fiver, Hazel and a few other rabbits take on the journey just to seek a place for their own, going through a lot of obstacles on the way and making unusual friends. . Reading this book was such a nice experience because the author has done a splendid job in creating the atmosphere, so real in itself and bringing out emotions of friendship, bravery, selflessness and loss so beautifully through a cast of rabbits. It took me longer to finish the book but I cannot take away from the fact that it’s an impressive and moving tale. I give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 and highly recommend it! I know Nat @keepreadingbooks loved the book too and if it takes the two of us to convince you to read it, we’re on it🙌🏻 – Apurva #frenchflapsreviews19 #bookreviewer #bookrecommendation #watershipdown #richardadams #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #beautifulbooks #amreading #unitedbookstagram #mybookfeatures #culturetripbooks #rabbitsofinstagram #onthebed #onthebed_project #cozyreading #hyggehome #bookish #bookishfeature #igreads #booklover #booksandcoffee #lovebooks #met_createchange #readmorebooks #bookpage #bookcollection

If you find that your favorite books from childhood still have a certain magic to them, they can be your anchors for when things are difficult. There’s something very comforting about knowing that, no matter what’s happening, you can always return to a story that calms you down and centers you.
