What are some children's books or authors that you love now or did as a child? Do you have some hoarded away for your own children that you had as a child?

Just thought I'd mention there's an interesting thread on children's books in the Book Forum.

My own favourite was Grimms!

I loved Grimms fairy tales!!!! Judy Blume was a great one too!!

I really like Shel Silverstein's books of poems. They are so cute. The artistry is very unique too.

There's a couple of books you should check out:

1. Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs
2. Math Curse

The first one I can never not cry when I read it and the second one is a fun, quirky one for kids with great illustrations.

I have to say Judy Blume is a favorite. For boys...the "Fudge" series is hysterical.

I use to LOVE Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs- it's the first Tomie dePaola book I remember reading.

I also love books by Robert McCloskey (Make Way For Ducklings, One Morning In Maine, Bluberries for Sal*).

I still like Richard Scarry's books, too- I used to look at the pictures for ever.

I also have a large stack of Cricket magazines from the 70's and 80's that I thumb through every once in a while, and hope that my son will enjoy them in a few years.
