Children’s Book Day – What Was Your Favorite?

Tuesday, 4/2/13, was Children’s Book Day.  We posted this picture of Clive showing our favorite Childrens Books on our Facebook page (come on over and like us, all the cool kids are), Twitter and Instagram.

Along with the picture of our favorite childrens books, we asked the obviuos question, what is your favorite childrens book?  We loved reading the responses and most made us think “oh, I forgot that one!” but there were also a couple we hadn’t heard of giving us something new to look for the next time we are in the bookstore.

The more popular responses found on all our media outlets were:

A Little Princess by Francis Hodgson Burnett – this links to a used copy of the version we read as kids with illustrations by Tasha Tudor

The Bridge To Terebithia by Katherine Patterson

Are You My Mother? By P D Eastman

Thornton W Burgess Animal Stories –  We are not familiar with these, so we’re looking forward to finding them and trying them out.

Stuart Little by E. B. White

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

So? What was your favorite book to read when you were growing up?
