There are plenty of good children's books that keep me interested and wouldn't mind reading it again. Personally, I love The Tale of Despereaux, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, and Persepolis.
Little Women, Greek Myths, Grimm's Fairy Tales, Aesop's Fables, Narnia series, Wrinkle in Time series by Madeline L'Engle, there's tons.
When I was a kid it was Heidi and Black Beauty. I also enjoyed Bible stories, fairy tales and mythology
I loved anything by Anne McCaffrey, Madeline L'Engle, and Rick Riordan. I also loved any books about animals.
My favorite children’s book is Tom’s Midnight Garden, by Philippa Pearce. I actually discovered this book when I was an adult and loved it right away. I enjoy rereading it periodically.
The Alligator and His Uncle Tooth.
The Five Chinese Brothers.
Where the Wild Things Are.
My professor introduced Goodnight Moon and Where the Wild Things Are to the class last semester. I enjoyed Where the Wild Things Are and the class discussed the importance of picture books to kids. It gives them a great way to explore. I never heard of Five Chinese Brothers but I read a novel of 10 Chinese Brothers.
Thanks for responding to my post. Was that a class in children's literature?
Well, I have to agree with your professor.
_The Five Chinese Brothers_ is also a picture book. It's a great, exciting story. Also, suspenseful.
Actually, there is "off screen" --- but accidental --- death. So, don't read it to any kids until you "preview" it on your own.
_The Alligator and His Uncle Tooth_ is for older kids. It has chapters, and only a black and white drawing for each chapter.
Really charming, adventurous, heartwarming story though.
I've never heard of _Ten Chinese Brothers_. I like the title. I'm going to look it up right now on Amazon.
I mostly stick of murder mysteries when I read fiction --- but, hey, I never rule anything out, as long as it's family-friendly and G-rated.
Meant to say "I mostly stick TO murder mysteries . . ."
Not, "I mostly stick OF murder mysteries . . "
Sorry about that LOL.
haha, it is cool,~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Brothers
yea, it was a children's literature class i took in college.
Old favourites include "Ballet Shoes", "The Little Princess", "My Family and Other Animals", and I also recommend the Ingo series of novels by Helen Dunmore.
For me - The Winnie the Pooh stories, Wind in the Willows. For repeated reading with small children - Mick Inkpen stuff.
The Little House books, by Laura Ingalls Wilder...my absolute favorite, and I have read them many times over, since I was a child!
As a kid I was quite taken by The Hare and The Vicar's Church Mouse, Lady Chat's Lover and The Larry Flint Series!
The ones I reread most often as an adult include Patricia Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles, Robin McKinley's Beauty, and the Macdonald Hall series and I Want To Go Home! by Gordon Korman. I reread favorite books - children's and adult - all the time, though, so if I listed them all, it would be a very long list!
Anything by Dr. Seuss. I know he writes more for younger children, but I still absolutely love his books!
First book I "read" from memory was "The Foot Book." Quite a good read I must say! haha
Yes, I totally forgot Dr. Sseuss. Thanks for reminding me. I love his books, too, and would --- and still do --- read them over and over. They're so fun, aren't they?

If you had only one book you could read to your child, which would it be?We all have favorite stories from when we were kids, but if you could only pick one of them to share with your own child, which would it be?

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...
