There are the books you read, and then there are the books that change your life. We can all look back on the books that have shaped our perspective on politics, religion, money, and love. Some have even become a source of inspiration for our lives. These are the books that have made an impression on me.
I decided to make a list of these books. The books listed are pretty eclectic and can be enjoyed by both boys or girls. Many times I will just list a series, or one book in the series. Hopefully, these will whet your appetite for more from that author. I would love to start with my favorite book since I was able to read at the age of 3. (Really!) This was not the exact one that I had, but it will give you a general area to start. Like Mine, it is a KJV though. The KJV was the only version (because of its language) that my parent's wanted us to memorize the verses from. 1. The Children's Bible Here are the rest of my recommendations. 2.
