    Favorite Children's Book?

    Some of discussed starting this thread before, so here goes!

    What is your favorite children's book? Picture book, chapter book, one you fondly remember, the one your child has made you read 500 times.....lol

    I have a whooole lot of them (being a mother and future teacher), so here are a few to get started:

    All Dr. Seuss
    The Monster at the End of This Book (my very favorite as a child)
    the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary
    Judy Blume books
    etc, etc, etc......I'm sure many many more will come to me.

    I could use some great ideas for my Literature Log for school.....

    I echo all of those. I also loved Santa Mouse and The Lonely Little Puppy when I was little. My daughter loves most of the Sesame Street books (God bless Jim Henson and the Children's Television Network) especially anything with Elmo. She also likes the new books that they have where they can lift flaps and see stuff underneath.

    Oh, and Little House on the Prairie, the Chronicles of Narnia, and Anne of Green Gables are musts for older kids! Oh and Charlotte's Web. Ugh, I'm going to have to get off of here before I go on all night.

    i loved the shel silverstein books when i was a kid... still do, actually. i also LOVED "sideways stories from wayside school." there's a series of 3, i believe. also the beverly cleary and judy blume books. loved the chronicles of narnia and robinson crusoe.

    my fave book though, from when i was little bitty, was called "mary, rose, and christmas tree june."

    i have 3 copies of it now. they were only printed in paperback, for 74cents a copy, i believe. an old bf scrounged up 2 more copies for me for a christmas present a few years ago. bought them for 75 and 100 dollars. crazy. but i love them.

    I echo all the ones mentioned above!

    My daughters favs right now she is 5 almost 6 are Chicka chicka boom boom, Cows that type, All of the " No David" books.
    When she was a toddler she loved Moo baa la la la,
    and Barnyard dance!

    I have started reading her the June B Jones books now she likes those.
    Oh! And she absolutely loves the Give a mouse a cookie books, moose a muffin, pig a pancake... all those! They are sooo sweet and have fantastic illustrations and are very fun to read. She just gets soooo cracked up at the story line!
