Hi all...I thought it would be a great idea to hear what everyone's favorite children's book was. I might even print this out after and start to stalk up. I really want to have lots of books for my children!

So please share...what was your favorite children's book? Or what is your favorite children's book now??

The best book ever:
Oh, The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

I read this book to all my students every year on the last day of school.

My fave was "The Polar Express" by Chris Van Alsburgh BEFORE the re-make re-release. I got it for Christmas of 92. It's still my fave. DH and I read it every Christmas Eve {although he has since bought me the re-release so I have 2 copies.. We're keeping the old one for our DCs because my grandma got it for me}.

DH's favorite book was "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein.

Oh good question, Shanna! My favorite book was "The Real Mother Goose." It has a ton of poems and nursery rhymes that are great for children who are starting to read.

I was always a huge fan of "Oh the Places You'll Go" by Dr Suess as well... It's probably still one of my favorites! LOL. Any Dr Suess Book was usually a hit with me.

Those and "The Very Hungry Catterpillar" by Eric Carle (I loved all his books actually) were the ones I had to read over and over

As a real little kid I remembered there was one book I really liked, I don't know the name but it was about a mouse going out and smelling different things. There were scratch and smell things on it. I still remember what everything smells like even though the smell is practically gone now.

I loved "Where the sidewalk ends" by Silverstein too as an older child as well as "The BFG" by Ronald Dahl

When I was really young, I loved "The Poky Little Puppy". When I got a little older, I was obsessed w/the Beverly Cleary books, especially Ramona.

I have an excellent collection of books going for our future children. I guess it helps I'm a teacher. I started it when I was still in college, and was ordering through Scholastic book clubs, and continued to do so.

Hollief - I remember that book.. I had The Real Mother Goose growing up and I loved it.

That and Golden books, Cinderella.

I am still a huge fan of anything Disney Cinderella!


But for my future kid along with the books above I have a prestine set of the Harry Potter books and Eragon series for him or her.

and DH and I talked just last night about getting some of the Golden books if we get pregnant.

My favorite book when I was younger was "Bread and Jam for Francis." I read it to my second graders now.


My current favorite children's book is "A Bad Case of Stripes." I love it! It has such great pictures! We do a few days worth of activities with it in my classroom.

When I was little I loved a book called "The Corgiville Fair" http://www.amazon.com/Corgiville-Fair-Tash...r/dp/0316853127 - the illustrations are just amazing.

I remember I had a bunch when I was a kid. Here are a couple of my all time faves. I know I'm forgetting some though! lol

Alligator Pie - This book is full of imagination! Its a bunch of short poems. It was fun to read with my parents.


Jelly Belly - Which is another book with fun easy to read poems


Corduroy - This is an adorable story of a bear in a department store that no body will buy because he has a missing button. Then a little girl falls in love with him, saves her money and buys him. She takes him home and sews on a brand new better than before button. Its really cute!


Where the Wild Things Are - for anyone who hasn't read this book...its brilliant! It's so creative...like a dream!


Mortimer - This is just a really fun Robert Munsch book. I actually love all of his books, but my mom used to read me this book in a very animated way...it's cute!

Cooty-Doo! It's one of many in a topsy-turvy set by Stephen Cosgrove. They all have really great morals to the stories and I've just begun the process of trying to collect them all.
I also really loved Ramona and Hank the cowdog when I was a little older.
