    Which Children's Books Do You Remember Reading?

    I'm listening to this show on the public radio station, and they're discussing children's books. This got me thinking, what were your favorite children's books growing up?

    Some of mine were:
    Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing
    The Witch of Blackbird Pond
    Sweet Pickles Series
    The Beatrix Potter series
    The Ramona Quimby series by Beverly Cleary

    Re: Which Children's Books Do You Remember Reading?

    Hi Molly, glad you started this topic! My mothers' group read the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series a couple years ago and it got us into some wonderful discussions of children's books.

    My favorites were: (off the top of my head)

    Little House on the Prairie
    Anne of Green Gables
    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory / anything by Roald Dahl --- we just got this as an audio book and listened to it on a road trip -- my 4 year old loved it and I'm so glad she is big enough for audio books!
    Witch of Blackbird Pond <--- Nice to see someone else remembered this!
    Bridge to Terabithia -- I haven't actually seen the movie yet.
    Beverly Cleary -- pretty much everything
    Judy Blume -- especially Are You There God, It's Me Margaret and Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself
    The Phantom Tollbooth
    The Princess and the Goblin -- George Macdonald
    The Road to Damietta -- Scott O'Dell

    Picture books:
    Harold and the Purple Crayon
    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
    Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel
    Millions of Cats
    Little Bear
    Corduroy
    All my Star Wars storybooks of course -- hehe.

    Some of my childhood favourites:

    Charlie & the chocolate Factory
    Lion the Witch & the Wardrobe
    The Three Investigator series
    The Secret Seven series (Enid Blyton)
    The Hardy Boys series
    The Jennings series (English school novels by Anthony Buckeridge)
    Biggles series (I have just about all of the series of about 90. Recently sold one for about 300 British pounds.)

    My favorite books as a kid were the Chronicles of Narnia, A Wrinkle in Time, Chocolate Fever, anything by Judy Blume, Tom's Garden. Oh, I can't forget Hank the Cowdog which still make me laugh to this day. My Side of the Mountain was a big deal too as it made me want to live in a tree.

    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
    Most of the Judy Blume Books
    Encyclopedia Brown

    I was also into a junior detective series called The Three Investigators. I always thought those books (Especially the early ones) were far better than The Hardy Boys or Nancy Grace.
