Beloved Children’s Books

I just got an interesting book called The Tao and Mother Goose, which more than anything about its philosophy has reminded me of how much I love some of my old children’s books.
So, what are your favorite children’s books that you remember?

For me, Harold and the Purple Crayon tops the list… I also love all the Land of Oz books. I seem to recall liking a whole lot of Dr. Seuss, too. Oh! I almost forgot about No Such Things, which would have been a shame.

You’re all soul-less husks of human beings, apparaently, with no cherished childhood memories.

Somehow, I’m not surprised.

Well, that’s one way to encourage people to comment 😛

Some childhood books off the top of my head: “The Boxcar Children”: series and the “Frog and Toad”: series. That’s all I can think of for now.

Now you should go harass people about commenting more on the posts “The Quote of the Day” and “My employer is so good to me,” which both only received one comment each…

I think once I outgrew that I started reading Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
