Childhood Reads: Sideways Stories from Wayside School

NewTDLogo

How many books can you remember from your childhood? I was thinking about some of the books I read from my childhood and tried to remember which ones I read. It has been a long, long time since I read these stories but obviously some I can still remember. The last time I recalled a favorite childhood read of mine, Magic Tree House, it was during November of 2018. I figured it was time to continue this little series once again. I really wanted to remember a book I read that I can bring a memory along with it. Then it hit me that there was one book I should mention.
