Books-published-in-the-first-years-of-my-life-challenge

Books-published-in-the-first-years-of-my-life-challenge
I do not think I gave much thought to the year of publication of books and this sounded interesting. I have decided to start at the toddler level this year and if possible will go up a level.
What it is about?
Easy: pick up and read a book that was published in the first years of your life.
Just pick up 1 book per year.
For my level picked up, here are the choices I have (will read from this list):
1974
The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
1975
Freedom at Midnight (1975)
Danny, the Champion of the World is a 1975 children's book by Roald Dahl.
My Life is the autobiography of the first female Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir. The book was published by G. P. Putnam's Sons in 1975.[1]
The Great Railway Bazaar
1976
Ashanti to Zulu: African Traditions is a 1976 children's book written by Margaret Musgrove and illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon. It was Musgrove's first book, but the Dillons were experienced artists and this book won them the second of their two consecutive Caldecott Medals.[1] (The first was for Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears: A West African Tale.[1
Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? by Raymond Carver
The Golden Gate by Alistair MacLean
