One of my favorite children's book is Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. I read it in 4th or 5th grade and remember is so well because it was the first book that ever made me cry. Since then, I've ran across other books that have brought out my emotions, but Bridge to Terabithia is the one that let me know it was possible to feel that way because of words on the page.

I love The Quilt makers Gift by Jeff Brumbeau. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. It is such a sweet story that teaches the lesson that it is often better to give than to receive.

I also love Heidi by Johanna Spyr, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol and Black Beauty by Anna Sewell and I have never even read them myself. The summer I was 7 I stayed with my grandparents in Oklahoma while my parents were at home in Mississippi. I remember every evening crawling up in my grannies lap and she would read the stories aloud to me. I can still remember the way she changed her voice for the different characters. I remember us laughing out loud, and even crying together during the sad parts. I also remember that is the summer that I fell in love with books.

When I was in Pre-K and Kindergarten, I loved the Berenstain Bears! The books always had a fun activity they were doing that my family did. It also taught me great life lessons.

When I was in fourth and fifth grade I love the Nancy Drew mystery series. I read all of those I could find. I loved the creativity she used when she she solved mysteries for people. It always a fun adventure with just a little bit of danger. I would stay up at night and read by flashlight so I could find out what happened at the end.

The Little Bear books were some of my favorites as a child. The older I got the more I was into the Nancy Drew series.

I remember reading Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time and from then on I was hooked on Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels. I read all of her novels that were at my local library. My favorite book growing up was Birth of the Firebringer by Joan D. Vinge, even then I was aware of the foreshadowings contained with in certain songs of the book but I did not know to call them that at the time.

As I said in my discussion board post, my favorite book is Alexander and the Magic Mouse by Martha Sanders. It was written in 1969 and I have met few people who have heard of it. It is a story about an old lady who owns several animals including a mouse, a yak, an alligator and a bringdle London squatting cat. They all live in a big house on a hill together. A flood comes and washes the bridge away that connects them to town. When Alexander tries to get word to the town that they are trapped he gets very sick.
My dad used to read this to us during storms or in the winter when sitting in front of the fireplace. He always used special voices for the characters and sound effects to go along as well. I have wonderful memories of this book. It may be one of the reasons I love reading as much as I do.

Sad, but I do not even know the title to the book I remember best as a child. It seems like it was called "Hush, Little Baby." I remember receiving it when my brother was born and it had the most beautiful pastel pictures of a mother with her children. I now know that book was Victorian in style, and I continually search for this book. It is so ingrained in my memory, that I would recognize any part of the book.

My favorite book was and still is Where the Wild Things Are. I guess I can relate to the character Max. But I was very disappointed with the movie!!

I think my favorite children's book would have to be Judith Viorst's "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day." I read it to my junior high students when we are having a particularly difficult day. "I'm moving to Australia!"

I loved the Amelia Bedilia and Judy Blume's Fudge books when I started reading on my own. Before that I loved fairy tales, books my Dad had wrote for a class, and Dr. Seuss the best.
