Favorite Picture Books- Part II

Sure I read all my childhood favorites to my kids. And they enjoyed them too. But when I started to think about their favorite books (which of course varied from child to child), I came up with this list:

  1. 17 Kings and 42 Elephants
  2. May I Bring a Friend?
  3. Knots on a Counting Rope
  4. The Mountains of Tibet
  5. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
  6. Jamberry
  7. Strega Nona
  8. Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock
  9. Green Eggs and Ham
  10. Go, Dog. Go!

What are Your Favorite Children’s Books?

Today over at the Writer Mama Back-to-School Giveaway, the first part of the prompt had to do with what  our favorite books were from various stages in our childhood.  I could easily have filled a page just with that!

So I thought it would be fun and interesting to do that here. Without “cheating” by looking in your children’s bookshelves or looking up books on Amazon, what are 10 picture books that you remember from your childhood (not necessarily ones your own children enjoyed). They don’t have to be your ten all-time favorites, just books that stayed with you over the years.

Mine are (in no particular order):

  1. The Cat in the Hat
  2. Harold and the Purple Crayon
  3. Ellen’s Lion
  4. Wally the Wordworm
  5. Play With Me
  6. Where the Wild Things Are
  7. What Do You Say Dear?
  8. Millions of Cats
  9. Madeline
  10. Curious George

What are your 10? (Leave it as a comment)
