Mine is called "A Quiet Place", and I don't know the author! ??? It's a tiny book and the little girl goes all about the house looking for a quiet place to just be alone for a bit. The opening page: "One day, a child named Grace was looking for a quiet place. She looked in the parlor behind the chair, but the clock ticked too loud, and someone was there." The someone was a cat! I love, love, love that story!

I loved Mother Goose nursery rhymes. When I was around 7-8 my Mom read The Little Princess and I loved it!

My favorite was Pippi Longstocking. I longed to be her! Read all the books over and over again. If only I could have a big chest of gold and a monkey! :D

I always love to read "Caps for Sale." I remember it as a kid, and I love reading it to kids at school. I never met a kid who doesn't love listening to that story. It is perfect for reading aloud. Oddly enough, I don't remember reading a lot to my own children.

However, when my kids were little, we did read a book over and over again called "When My Mother was Little."

Anything by Mo Willems is a great read.

I used to read Thank You Mr. Falker to my younger son, and it makes me cry every single time.

My favorite is Miss Twigley's Tree. Beautiful story and message. I loved reading to my kids and it's my standard baby shower gift.

I feel like my childhood was so long ago, but I have read childrens' books for years! I guess that's what happens when you have a whole lot of kids. ;)

My little guys still love mostly picture books and their favorites are my favorites...If you give a Pig a Pancake books and No, David!
They love Mo Willems too!
We draw the pigeon and other characters with chalk on the sidewalk. It's fun to stay forever young because of books.
I also loved, LOVED Where the Red Fern Grows when my third grade teacher read it a little bit each day after lunch/recess. I was so into puppies and animals back then. I read it several more times after that and have watched the movie with my kids a few times too.

I also have a special place for Chicka, Chicka Boom Boom and My Mom and Dad make me Laugh. Teagan would check them out at our local library over and over the year we went there. She had to renew them sometimes because she didn't want to bring them back!

Love the books and memories in this thread. I want to go to the library soon now too!

When DS was little, we had a book called "If You Give a Moose a Cookie" (just like the "Mouse") version. Loved it, as I grew up in AK. ;)
