  1. Thanks for stopping by Bookworm Bear. I liked Toys Go Out, too. Have you read Toy Dance Party, or Toys Come Home (also by Emily Jenkins)?

  2. My favorite kids books are the ones I read as a kid. The Little House books, Caddie Woodlawn, and Where the Red Fern Grows.

    Thanks!!

    • The Very Hungry Caterpillar was a big hit with toddlers in my home! Fun to try art projects in Eric Carle’s style, too.

    • We loved Sandra Boynton books here, too. Have you read Blue Hat, Green Hat? Or, But Not the Hippopotamus? Those are good ones, too.

  3. I will let my one year old daughter pick her favorite: Good Night, Gorilla! What is it about this book that makes her want to read it over and over and over and over and….

    • Good Night, Gorilla – we read that one over and over, too. Maybe it’s looking closely at the pictures and noticing the little gorilla taking the keys, and all the other little details?

    • I haven’t read “OH NO!” — I’ll look around for it – sounds like a good book for a 4 year old.

  4. My daughter and I are loving “Giant Dance Party”; my son and I are reading the Wizard of Oz graphic novel adaptation by Eric Shanower and “HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, and I’m in love with Hilary McKay’s Casson Family series.

    • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is one of my favorite HP books – I love the idea of animagi or (animagus) (wizards who can turn into an animal and back again with magic), the time turner, and many other things about the story.

  5. Winnie the Witch is one of my favourite books, she has so many wonderfully wacky adventures (with the long suffering Wilbur!) 🙂

  6. My 11-year old son says – Warriors series, Harry Potter series, the Hobbit.

Over the years some we come back to are the Madeline books, Harry the Dirty Dog, anything by Margaret Wise Brown, Make Way for Ducklings, Eloise. . .

    • Thanks for stopping by Bookworm Bear and entering the giveaway! It sounds like you have a houseful of readers!

  9. Hi! One if my new favorites is “Roxaboxen” by Alice McLerran. Its text is simple, relatable, and at times approaches poetic. It is a lovely testament to the power imagination has on shaping who we become.

  11. Not feeling very accomplished on making the linky bit work, but I’m mentioning A Formal Feeling, by Zibby Oneal. More of a teen read, but still well worth it. (But on the picture book front, it’s In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak.)

    • Thanks for stopping by Bookworm Bear and entering the giveaway! I haven’t seen A Formal Feeling – I’ll look for it. We loved Maurice Sendak – from Little Bear to Where the Wild Things Are.

  12. I have vivid memories of being read to as a child. I remember my third grade teacher reading us How to Eat Fried Worms; I also remember my grandmother reading me Pinnochio and Alice in Wonderland. I loved reading books like Harriet the Spy and the Ramona books.

    My girls love it when I read them the Harry Potter books; these are the first more grown up books that they have enjoyed. I also enjoy the Benedict Society books and hope they get hooked on those next.

  21. We just checked out The Baby That Roared a few weeks ago and I think that’s one of my favorites now. It’s so cute and my kids loved the story.

  22. Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham is the best of all time for me 🙂
    But I’m dying to see “The Little Sparrow Named Too” by E. Dantes.

  23. The first book I read to my daughter (post-wombness) was “North Star” by Peter Reynolds. Our first chapter book together was “My Father’s Dragon” by Ruth Stiles Gannet. I could not help but think of the sweetest red-headed boy who dressed up like Boris with a great big smile on his face. Classics in my book. 🙂

  24. It depends on what age you are talking about, but I always loved Nancy Drew, and The Little House on the Prairie books. 🙂

  25. My favorite children’s books were “Pippi Longstocking”, “Pecos Bill”, and the “Uncle Remus” stories.
