The Wind in the WIllows was my favorite, hands down. Followed by Charlotte's Web and Alice of course....

Ahhhh, a subject close to my heart! One of my faves (and I have his original copy) was a book that my dad loved - Wind in the Willows! And when Meg was little we loved Arnold Lobel books. Tommi di Paola was another great author. (Can you tell I'm all over the place, age-wise?) And one that I can't wait to read to the little boys of my heart - but I have to find a copy of the Gingerbread Man first, so they have a point of reference - is the Stinky Cheese Man. I randomly pulled this off of a shelf when the class I was supervising was working with the librarian. I started browsing through it and had to leave the library I laughed so hard!

I find a lot of odd books at Sam's Club and BJ's! HUG came from there and the boys have about worn it out. I'm pretty sure my copy of Old MacDonald Had a Farm came from there too. (We love that one because in it Old MacDonald wears a kilt and sporran, drinks from a flask and plays the bagpipes - while all the animals hold their ears!).

Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!!

Hey Everyone! What are your favorite children's books? I started with a pic of Anne Shirley, because I loved Anne of Green Gables so much. Still do! I'm also a big fan of "The Secret Garden". Feel free to discuss the well-known, the lesser-known, and any issues you may be having if you are writing for children! And if you work or live with kids, tell us what they like!
