One that really stands out to me is the great adventure books by Jim Kjelgaard who wrote "Irish Red", "Big Red" etc. all seen through the eyes of a dog and his child hood freind. Amazing indeed.
My favorite book that I would read to my children when they were younger was "I'll Love You Forever". It's just fabulous.
Mick Harte Was Here
Where the Sidewalk Ends
Where the Wild Things Are
Goosebumps' Werewolf of Fever Swamp
I love to read detective books all time as well in my childhood
Eloise (a series of a little girl travelling around the world with her Nanny and mother)
I don't know why, but my first seems to draw me back in time, something about Dick and Jane and "Run Spot run!" LOL Big fat crayons and finger paints too. Remember these anyone? Oh,and mimeographed paper. I loved that smell!
The Secret Garden, Basil of Baker street, All the Narnia books and all the Little House on the Prairie books.
For my son-he also injoyed the Narnia series and Toad Rage, but when he was really small he loved I Love You This Much and Asleep on the Farm.
I had two favourite books when I was growing up.
The first book I love was "Black Beauty" and the second book was "Little Women". I have seen Little Women as a movie several times on the TV. It is just a beautiful story about four sisters growing up in the days of the WAR. Their father is fighting and their mother looks after them alone. However, they all pitch in and help her and make her proud of them. Just a lovely story. BB
