If you were a child in the 1960s, you'll know the names Beverly Cleary, Roald Dahl, and Shel Silverstein. These were some of the authors who wrote the words that filled our childhoods with adventure, wonder, laughter and more, found in the pages of the books we read late at night, clutching our flashlights beneath the blankets. In childhood, the stories we explored seemed more full of adventure and wonder than could be possible. Books opened our imaginations, and opened doors to strange, wonderful and frightening realities.
If you were a kid growing up in the 1960s, chances are these are some of the books you remember.
