Re: Favorite children's books

Dr. Seuss was a firm favourite when I was very young, and later I started reading The Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew. I then moved on to the Little House series, Judy Blume and The Famous Five, among others. My elementary school had a book club and I'd blow almost all my allowance on books, some of which my daughter now reads. My sons don't share my childhood taste in reading and don't read my old books, though I enjoy raiding their bookcase and reading about Captain Underpants and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

My kids are too old for picture books but I still love to look through them in libraries and bookshops. MHT1138, I'd love to have your job!
