The Dirigible Plum wrote a slice about books publisher the year she was born, 1972, and I was inspired to search which books were published the year I was born, 1952.
You can read her SOL about the books published in 1972 here:
I was amused to find Charlotte’s Web! Kids have been reading that book forever!
Then I found a few that I have actually read and enjoyed.
This one I read in a college Children’s Literature class and quickly fell in love with the story.
And this one has been a favorite of mine for a long time.
I had no clue these books were published so long ago!
