    I remember begging mom to read Uncle Remus Stories to us again and again. I just loved those stories. 🙂

    I loved hearing and reading The Lorax, The Sneeches, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish, The Zax, Horton and fairy tales. As I grew up, I became a devoted fan of Judy Blume–Are you There God? It’s me Margaret and the Fudge series, until the 4th grade, when I discovered “A Christmas Carol”–went to see a play, based on the book and I was hooked. It was not until 6th or 7th grade that I read it for the first time, but I watched all the movies. I still do to this day, read it at Christmas and watch all the specials.

    When my niece and nephews started arriving, it was tons of fun for me to find these old favorites and give them as gifts. Of course, the biggest book gift I gave was when my sister was pregnant for the first time (with my niece who graduates from high school a week from today) and I got a brand new set of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books for her—since I have the old yellow-cover set from when she and I were kids.

    I love “Are You My Mother” and “Harold & the Purple Crayon” were favorites of mine!

    I always liked the Nancy Drew and Laura Ingalls Wilder Books.

    I don’t remember too far back, aside from having some Dr. Suess books. I’m sure there were others. When I started choosing books of my own, I reread the Laura Ingalls books over and over. And I liked books about wolves. The Wolf, by Dr. Michael Fox, was one of my favorites and inspired my first attempt at a novel, with chapters, in the fourth grade. There was a book called Little Dog Lost, about a corgi, that I liked. The Incredible Journey. Seems I liked books about dogs and wild animals or else living in a sod cabin on the frontier.

    Oddly enough I don’t remember my mother ever reading to me. I do remember the first book I checked out of the city library was Pocahontas. I remember I loved fairy tales. My cousin had this reading text book from school that was full of all kinds of stories, especially fairy tales. I don’t know how he ended up with the book, but when he joined the Navy, his mother gave me the book. I still have it even though the cover is about to come off. I would order the Scholastic books in school. I remember reading The Incredible Journey and Born Free.
