I love humorous children's picture books--like those by Rosemary Wells, the Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus books, etc. They're as much fun to read as to share. They make storytime much more enjoyable.

you write young adult lit? that is so cool! i would love to read some of it! oh i remember johnny tremaine. i loved it. i think we need more books like that. and i think tom sawyer should be considered kids' lit even though it's such a treat for adults. great choice. same with to kill a mockingbird. i think we often forget older kids' lit. and how can they love literature if there isn't enough of it?

I have two antique books of children's stories. Carolyn Sherwin Bailey compilations. One is For The Children's Hour ( 1943) the other is Stories Children Need ( 1916) Unusual stories in both. My favorite antique book I actually read as a child Read Another Story by Pratt& Meighen illustrated by Carol Critchfield, a wonderful illustrator. I have her illustrations embedded in my heart.

I love that picture of Anne of Green Gables, I just fell in love with her character.. any reason why my hair is red? hmm. I loved the Beverly Clearly books, Piggle Wiggles magic.

I didn't even know it WAS a book!! Here I thought she was the brain-child of Disney. I may have to investigate this.

I forgot to say how much I love Mary Poppins...I love the movie, of course. But it all started with the written word. Mary was even wilder in the books! Do kids read that anymore?
