    I always liked My Teacher Is An Alien, Bunnicula, and the Scary Stories books.
    Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

      Oh, I liked Bunnicula series too,but I couldn't remember what it was called. That reminds me that I also liked Hank the Cowdog series.

        My favorites in elementary school had to be Dinosaur Dream by Dennis Nolan, the Magic School Bus series and the Goosebumps series.

              Two words: NANCY DREW! I loved that series more than anything else--it defined my childhood and to this day, even though I stopped reading them when I was around 12, I have an affection for those wonderful old yellow books. :)

                  I wasn't much of a reader as a kid, I mean I had the option to choose from either TV, video games or a book, of course as a kid I chose the first 2.

                  Anyway, we were always told to read 1 book every trimester in school and the only books I remember enjoying were:
                  The Choose Your Own Adventure ones
                  A really old & short book about a dog, I can't remember the name.

                        In early elementary school i bought the following two books; the mad scientists club, and New Adventures of the Mad Scientists Club. Then a about 20 years later they published two novels to accompany the series.

                        During the course of the books, the boys often use technology (such as ham radios) and science to pull off harebrained schemes. For example, in "The Strange Sea Monster of Strawberry Lake," they build a fake sea monster out of chicken wire mounted to a canoe, and row it out on Strawberry Lake. When it gets too dangerous to take the boat out on the lake themselves because hunters are preparing to shoot it with an elephant gun, they rig a remote control system to operate it at a distance.

                              All pre-teens should read this wonderful book.

                                Surprised no one mentioned the Choose Your Own Adventure books. I loved those and had the bad habit of bookmarking junctions so I if I picked a bad story route I could go back.

                                Never really got into Animorphs though despite it being popular. To this day I'm surprised I never read Harry Potter despite being a fan of fantasy.

                                      When I was little, my mother would often read to me--usually short picture books like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, those Golden Books (if you were a '70s kid, you'll know what I'm talking about).

                                      But the one I remember and loved the best was a collection of stories by Hans Christian Andersen. He was a Danish author (1805-1875)who achieved world fame for his fairy tales, such as: The Emperor's New Clothes, The Little Match Girl, The Ugly Duckling, The Steadfast Tin Soldier. These stories transcended time and cultures.

                                      My mom would sit and read these stories at my bedside until I fell asleep.

                                      There are statues of Andersen in his native Denmark, as well as one in New York's Central Park.

                                      If you have small children, do them a favor and make them aware of this man's incredible work.
