What is your favorite child's book?
« on: January 13, 2011, 11:29:55 AM »
I know there are others on here who have young children which means reading children's books, over, and over.  So I wondered what is your favorite; it can either be your favorite you read your child or your favorite from your childhood.

Mine is Socks for Supper, although, I enjoy reading Cat in the Hat too.

I have no children myself, but I have studied children's literature and love children's books.

I think my favorite picture book from my childhood was Aunt Isabella Tells a Good One - very cute illustrations and an imaginative tale about a bedtime story.

Oh, "Goodnight Moon" in a heartbeat.  That one has been around -forever-...

Good deal, he wrote a lot of stories.  I believe we own at least 15 of them.

How young a 'child' are we talking about?  My favorite book in fourth grade was 'The Phantom Tollbooth', and I read it to the little Oni when she was in 2nd or 3rd grade.

yeah, I first discovered Greek, Celtic and Norse myths when I was 3 or 4, at the local library.  From that point on, I've been a huge fan of mythology.

"Crow and Weasel" Its illustrations are beautiful and I was always in love with native American culture. Dad used to read Harry Potter for bedtime stories before I could read (I read the last half of the first book by myself)

"Goodnight Moon"

"Cat, You Better Come Home"

Dr Seuss: "if I ran the Zoo" "The Lorax" "One Fish Two fish Red Fish Blue Fish" "To think that I saw it On Mulberry Street" and there was one with a kid and a bunch of hats... I can't find the name though

"Thunder Cake"

"Boxcar Children"

"The Berenstain Bears"

"The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear "

Mercer Mayer's "Little Critter" books

"The Mouse and the Motorcycle"

And others I'm sure

My reading mostly centered on Greek and Roman myths-- I only read some Norse mythology. Almost no Celtic. >.>

If you read the Lloyd Alexander books, you've gotten a fair piece of Celtic myth.

Ah, with a name like Fae Brin, I would have figured you for a fan of the Celtic mythology. 

Norse is my favorite of the lot, I really suggest you take a look at it.  You may find it to your liking.

 I had a near complete collection of the hard back Dr. Seuss books, hand me downs with worn down spines.  I learned to read with those books, and I still find them to be excellent stories.  He was a great!  I was always so sad for the lorax.

I know enough about Norse mythology to be familiar with some of the terms, but the actual legends escape me.

Mm-- I went through a small druid phase?

>.>

<.<

Kay-- so it was a big one alright. I might have poked around the Celtic lit a bit. But I don't remember almost all of it.

  My favorite children's book as a child was 'The Tale of Zachary Zween', a really obscure old book about a boy in a boy's school where everything was done in alphabetical order, so he was always last. It's a really sweet book.

  Also, I think the Madeline series is truly superb.

Along with Goosebumps, The Giver, The Outsiders, and Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde...I adored the Sideways Stories from Wayside School. I always liked the story about Mr. Gorf who sucked up children's voices through his third nostril. And the one about Miss Wendy Nogard who uses her third ear to read the children's minds and make them miserable my humiliating them because no one loves her.

I saw one listed in the little Oni's Scholastic flyers earlier this year.  Contact your local elementary schools and find out when they're having Scholastic book fairs.  I know they're usually for students and their parents, but they might be amenable to others, since the schools get a portion of the proceeds.

"I Love You, Forever." by Robert Munsch

I defy anyone to read this without getting weepy at the end.
