Even as an adult, I still have a soft spot for some of the books I read as a kid, like Horton Hears a Who, Alice in Wonderland, What Katy Did, Anne of Green Gables, and I loved the Nancy Drew series.
The Wizard of Oz will always be my favorite and I read most of the series with my daughter ( some of the Oz books were pretty scary and I had to skip a few parts) My kids all loved the Robert Munsch books. I still can't get through " love you forever" without bawling my eyes out.
Oh there are so many but the ones that come top of mind today include "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett (about ages 9 to 12) and the "Superfudge" series from Judy Bloome (about grade level 2).
Wow. Okay so some of my favs were There's a Wocket in my Pocket, The Ralph S Mouse Series, the Bernstein Bears & Amelia Badelia.
My favorite book as a child was Maurice Sendak's "Where The Wild Things Are?" I also read most of C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia" series. "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is my favorite of the series.
I have never read the Chronicles of Narnia series - I will have to check them out....thanks
Ooh, yes the Chronicles of Narnia were great too and then you can follow them up with movie night
I loved to read when I was a kid. Wizard of Oz was the first longer book I ever read, Black Beauty, Wrinkle in Time. I also loved the Nancy Drew series. As a young person, I thought she was so "cool."
When I was eight to ten, (heck, even now still!) my favourite book of all time was 'Goodnight Mr. Tom' by Michelle Magorian. I read it over and over, to the point where the pages got worn, and I was devastated when bugs began to eat it, so I had it bound and restored.
I think that book is what got me really interested in studying and learning more about history, particularly during the nineteen forties and fifties.
I also really enjoyed 'The Prince and the Pauper', and the 'One Hundred and One Dalmatians' by Dodie Smith.
My favorite children's book was "Cindrella". I was in love with the fairy and kept waiting for a fairy in my life. The turning of pumpkin into a chariot was most memorable part of the story. Cindrella was my dream of childhood. And I used to hate her step sisters and father by heart.
I loved the Magic School Bus series, but my favorite book was The Very Hungry Caterpillar, because I loved bugs (unlike now…). I'm keeping those to let my children read in the future!

I'm a YA author, so my list gets pretty exhaustive of "favorite books" in the children's world. Among them? ALL of Tamora Pierce's work and Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Give me a good girl adventure and I'm happy as a clam--and it's work that I'm still pretty...
