"The Giving Tree" is a timeless book for both young and old. As is "Oh The Places You Will Go!"

Wow, I am not sure if I am old or just out of it, because I have never heard of many of the books you guys have mentioned.

I read Richard Scarey and Dr Seuss and GoldenBook titles, as I got a bit older Brothers Grimm. I was totally fascinated by mythology as a little kid so I read tonnes of that.

I have two children, my girl loved Dr Seuss and Amelia Bedilia stories. I discovered a now out of print author named Roger Hangreaves. His books are AMAZING, I buy every one I can find. My son, 6, loves the books. ( he is high functioning autistic so he doesn't like a lot of the "regular" children's books. The small size and bright pictures are great for him )

I love that book and just bought it for my 3 year old grand-daughter. She's had her mother read it to her endlessly and I had to send her more

Default books

I also loved Judy Blume when I was growing up.
For my young boys, we like The Magic Treehouse series
"Time For Bed" by Mem Fox
and anything by Todd Parr.
I could go on and on...we are avid readers in my family.
Great thread!!!!
