I really like children’s books. I often read them for pleasure (and not just because the Harry Potter craze has taken everyone by the short curlies).
I wondered what other people’s favorite children’s books were/are. They may be from your childhood, or books that you’ve read to your children and really liked. Or, if you’re like me, books that you’ve discovered recently, and have kept the embers of kiddie lit glowing.
My favorites are
The Encyclopedia Brown series
What Happened in Hamelin by Gloria Skurzynski (find it, read it, you’ll love it!)
The Captain Underpants books
Most Chris Van Allsburg
