    "The Hungry Catepillar"! I still love the drawings and the story is very cute. I'm going to get a copy soon for my new nephew.

    When I was older, I loved "Bridge to Terabithia". I enjoyed the fantasy aspect of kids having their own secret domain, and the sad part was shocking as a kid.

    The Chronicles of Narnia were favorites too. My fourth grade teacher read them out loud do us.

    When I was very young, I loved the "Sneetches" from Dr. Seuss. As I got a little older, I enjoyed the "Great Brain" series by John C. Fitzgerald, the Chronicles of Narnia and the Tripods trilogy by John Christopher.

    "Where the Wild Things Are"
    "The Hungry Caterpillar"
    Anything by Dr. Suess! My mother loved Dr. Suess as much as I did so it was so much fun when she read him to me! When I got a little bit older I loved the Judy Blume's and all the S.E. Hinton books (The Outsiders, Rumble Fish, etc.)

    The Tintin and Asterix books. French comic book classics. And Noddy. And then Nancy Drews.

    If you can't tell from the picture with this question, my favorite book was Goodnight Moon.

    Elizabeth Taylor - Thanks for the reminder/memories of the S.E. Hinton books! I also LOVED those as a pre-teen.

    I loved the entire C.S. Lewis "Chronicles Of Narnia" set, but out of all of them Prince Caspian was my fave...

    Hey, I would recognize Goodnight Moon anytime! My son and I still have that book.

    Hmm, I don't really recall too manybooks from my childhood, but one does stand out...Rikki-Tikki-Tembo (no idea on the spelling). I loved that book.

    I loved Matilda by Roald Dahl - I read it over and over and over.

    The Secret Garden. I loved the idea of a secret place that nobody knew about and I also liked the idea of the crippled boy becoming healthy. Earlier than that my Mother told us stories she made up and I liked the Little Golden Books.

    The first favorite I can remember is Sophie & Gussie, about two squirrel friends -- read it so often it literally fell apart.

    When I was a little older my mom bought me Mandy by Julie (Andrews) Edwards, another I read multiple times, and one I still have today.

    And then there was the entire Trixie Belden series....
