    Lets see...
    When my daughter was a baby we loved to read Time for Bed (Mem Fox - all her stuff is really sweet) She's now getting into a lot I remember as a child, including Harold and the Purple Crayon, Madeline and Amelia Bedelia. Junie B. Jones (I think its a new series?) really cracks even ME up.
    As an adolescent I really enjoyed The Borrowers, Encyclopedia Brown (series), The Four Story Mistake (and And Then There Were Five),The Bobsey Twins, and later on anything by S E Hinton.

    Now I've got to go back a read this whole thread - lots of memories in here, I'm sure.

    I had completely forgotten about Encyclopedia Brown. I used to love those.
    Did anyone else read The Babysitters Club series?

    I just went in the attic and got out all of my old books. I think I owned every single Berenstain Bear book. Those were GREAT! And Poky Little Puppy was read to me every night by my daddy. Amelia Bedelia are still the best books ever. I still laugh at them!

    I've read all of those and adored those. I loved Amelia Bedelia. Remember the one where she had to watch the baby? Baby food

    For anyone who is a Suess fan (and I think that is everyone) there is a great biography out there which tells all kinds of facinating stuff about him.

    Such as:
    Early in his career he wrote a book for adults called The Seven Lady Godivas (I've read it and it's funny!).

    He wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a bet.

    He wrote a political comentary on Richard Nixon. (Again a bet -- he took his book, Marvin K Mooney Will You Please Leave Now, and crossed out the name and wrote Richard M. Nixon. He won the bet.

    and more.

    Did you know that Paula recently passed away? What a shame....


    I loved the Weekly Readers (Frog and Toad are friends, Bargain for Francis, Curious George). Also Amelia Bedelia and Ramona the Pest

    As a pre-teen I loved all the Judy Blume's, probably Are you there God...as my favorite with Blubber and Superfudge right up there.

    And I'll agree about The Monster at the End of the Book being terrific! I love Grover

    Oh, I loved The Cat Ate My Gymsuit and The Pistachio Prescription! I can hardly wait till my girls are old enough for those kind of books.
