    I liked Green Eggs and Ham, Cat in the Hat, and The Elephant who Couldnt Forget. I told my mom to read that book ever night at bed time. Other books would be anything relating to arts and crafts.

    I can't believe someone remembers this book! I used to get these in the mail as a kid becuase my mom wanted to get my brother into reading. It was called "The Pickle Book". Also, other books I liked as a kid:

    -The Children's Bible
    -Peter Pan (the original by J.M. Barrie)
    -Charlotte's Web
    -Stuart Little
    -The Trumpet of the Swan
    -The Cricket in Times Square
    -Freckle Juice
    -Nothing's Fair in the Fifth Grade

    I also went through this stage where I read (almost obsessively) a medical book with the most horrid pictures of abrasions, third-degree burns, and fractured limbs. I remember (very vividly) running up to my mother with the book and saying, "Look at THIS man, Mommy! He's bleeding like crazy!" And afterward my mother would freak out and say, "What's wrong with you? Don't you want to read something like Fairy Tales? Or books for children your age?" And I'd say, "No."

    Ah....memories.....

    I loved the Robert Munsch books. My first-grade teacher had a whole basket full of 'em. My personal favorites include "Angela's Airplane," "Murmel, Murmel, Murmel," "Something Good," and "Love You Forever."

    Love You Forever is the most beautiful children's story I have ever read. I bought my own copy and I'm in my twenties. I had the privilege of going to one of his readings when I was a child and he is one of the most entertaining men ever. I also loved "David's Father", "I have to go!", "Mortimer", "The Paper Bag Princess", "50 Below Zero", "Thomas' Snowsuit" and "The Mud Puddle".

    I never was much of a books person. But last Christmas I got all the eight Moomin novels and I still enjoy reading them. Bizarre but deep and uncannily real.

    Beverly Cleary was practically my favorite author as a kid. I loved her books. My favorite series of books by her, was her Ramona ones, along with their spinoffs.

    I also enjoyed books by Judy Blume since most of her stories dealt with real "girl"-like probs, or just serious probs in general that most can relate to in some way or form.

    When older, I enjoyed the Fear Street books by R. L. Stine.

    Yeah, I love Christopher Pike! Two of my favs by him are Weekend and theo ther one, I can't recall the name right off. It was about this girl, who was with this "perfect guy", in her eyes, until she got pregnant. She and her bf left town, planning on getting an abortion, but it's like they never went through with it or somethign. They came back to town, just to find it completely empty, 'cept for a select few (who of which they new from their school). A few months earlier, or so, a fellow student of their's died, and apparently, all of these kids had some kind of connection to her. One character in that story, I was strongly attached to. The "nerd" of the group. Seems I always get drawn to the nerdy ones. I'll put the title of the book up later.

    When I was a little kid, I used to wait until I thought my parents were asleep, and get out a flashlight and read under the covers. Unfortunately many times they WEREN'T asleep and could hear me moving upstairs if they were in the kitchen, or they could be listening on the intercoms. So I would get up to creep across the room to get a book and a voice on the intercom would say, KATHERINE GO TO BED. Haha wow I remember how my parents used to hide my books and flashlights because A) They wanted me to go to sleep and B) They wanted me to stop running flashlight batteries down. I would always go downstairs and find them because I just COULDNT wait until the morning to finish my book.
    And yes now to show for it I have terrible eyes and I never go to bed before 1:00 basically, but thats life. =]

    The books I read...
    Dr. Suess
    Amelia Bedilia
    Pippi Longstocking

    and wow this list is so long and I could go on and on. I read SO much as a kid. We had this thing called Accelerated Reading, where you read a book and take a test on a computer...then for like every point or whatever you get a ticket...you get to put the ticket in a bucket and then get prizes. I would get like 500 tickets every drawing, and I think we had one every quarter. Everyone used to think it was crazy that I read so much. I still try to read two books a week if I can, but when you are in highschool you have like zero free time.
