  • Oh, Cora Vee that brought tears to my eyes. What a nice story!
    I have many favorites. Charlotte's Web, I can hear Mrs. Braia my 3rd grade teacher reading in my head. She read a chapter a day.
    I Will Find You and The Furry Bedtime Book are favorites that I love to read to my children.

  • "I love you forever" and Dr. Seus' "Oh the places you will go"
  • My niece just graduated from high school this weekend. They used the book "Oh, the Places You Will Go" as a theme for her party. Everyone signed a copy of the book (like you'd sign a guest book). It was cute.
  • Signing Book for graduation
    Oh, what a wonderful idea. Wonder if I can remember that when my grandchildren graduate in about 10-15 years. With my memory, not a chance. But that was a very cute thing to do.
  • Childrens books....
  • Dr. Suess-- I've always loved "Ten Apples Up On Top", and "Fox in Socks." Those books really help kids to enjoy learning to read. As They get older, though, they want more adventure. I've read "The Sword of Shannara", the Harry Potter series, and "The Hobbit" to my kids. I started to read "The Lord of the RIngs", by my ten-year-old found it too frightening.
  • My favorites
    As a child, I loved the Ramona books, and any Judy Blume books. I also loved the "Little House on the Prairie" series. I also loved Dr Seuss, especially "Green Eggs and Ham". As an adult my favorite children's books are the same as above, plus the CS Lewis series, and the Harry Potter series.

    Books I enjoy reading to my 16-month-old son are "Guess How Much I Love You", "Snoozers", any board books that he has, and of course Dr Seuss books. There are a ton of children's books that I never read that I am going to read to my son - that way I can enjoy those classics as well as possibly help him to enjoy them.

  • my favorite story
    My personal favorite story is 'The Red Umberella' I know that none of you have ever heard of it as it was a story my mom made up when i was a child and read it to me over and over again. It is about a little girl and all she would like for her birthday is a red umberella. Her mom and her go shopping all over town for one but they have every color but red. She is sad about that but is happy when her party guests arrive. Her dad comes home later with a gift for her and can you guess what it was??? lol a red umberella!!!! When my first DD was born my mom printed the story and made it into a book for me to read to her

    The other favorite book that we have in the house is ' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' ( aka Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory ) . I could read that story to my kids over and over again.

  • I really enjoyed Hansel and Gretal when I was young. I remember the book even having a strange smell to it. I remember thinking about that story all the time. How intriguing a house like that would be, but how awful for the father and stepmother to abandon the kids off in the woods.

    As I got older, I read "Island of the Blue Dolphins" (a girl is abandoned on an island all by herself). I must have been about 9 or 10. That was the first time I was sad a book was over. I, also enjoyed "A Taste of Blackberries" (a little boy gets stung by a bee eating from a blackberry bramble and dies) and "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" (a woman, during colonial times, accused of witchcraft being she could swim - she was raised in the Bahamas).

    Now, as an adult, I enjoy reading to my son "Mr. Brown Can Moo", as well as "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie".
