I will always love Shel Silverstein's stories no matter how old I get. Especially "The Giving Tree."

I love that book! I gave it to my grandpa the year it came out... I could tell he was, like, "ohhhhkaaaaayyyy... she's giving me a kid's book...." But I think he realized why I gave it to him after he read it

Look through my window by Jean Little was awesome for me as a child. Mrs. Little came to our school and read parts of it to us and told her own story. I have loved that book since then but nothing beats her own story of her life. What a woman!

-- Nathaniel Hawthorne's "A Wonder Book And Tanglewood Tales". It's all about mythology. Hawthorne the children's author -- who knew?

-- Also "Mike Mulligan And His Steam Shovel". Now THERE'S a book.

-- Any of P.L. Travers' "Mary Poppins" books.

-- "The Stinky Cheese Man And Other Fairly Stupid Stories" -- don't remember who wrote it but it's hilarious.

Has anyone put "Coraline" by Neil Gaiman, or the "Series of Unfortunate Events" books? Those are really awesome books, and "Coraline" is really a little to creepy for most little kids. I also still have a place in my heart for Jane Yolen's "Piggins" books.

Is the song download still on there? It's a great song. I also liked Sunny Baudelaire's speech game.

I loved The Giver. I read it a long time ago for a class. I remember crying at the end. Don't ask why. I'm not really sure myself. "Gathering Blue" was also really, really good.
