Favorite Children's books?
    #4061557 - 04/16/05 04:32 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

C'mon, people.  I know you're not adolescents anymore.  I know a good contingent of you Pubbers are stoned and have thought, at times in the past: "Man, that book was SO cool."

Some of my favorite children's titles:

"One Monster After Another."
"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs."
"Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark...n."
"Frog and Toad: The Cookies Story." 
"Where the Wild Things Roam."
"Sleepover at Ira's."
What is the one where he floats all around naked and in dough???
That big Luigi pasta deal where he can't eat all the pasta out of the magic pot and it flows all over the city...
HELP!!

Please list titles/memories of what you liked as a child.  :laugh:


Cool beans, cool beans.  :cool:

Dude, my mom's an elementary librarian, so I read a billion books when I was a kid. I can remember most of those that you're talking about, and the one with the naked dough boy. If we don't find the answer tonight, I'll call her in the morning and ask.

Cool enough. :wink:

I'd like to hear which books stuck with people--the images that hang on a decade or two decades longer.  What struck the children as so clearly and intuitively obvious? 

Interest lies in what attracts the child's mind like to a shiny new tricycle with gold pedals. :laugh:

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

STINKY CHEESE MAN, i loved reading it to my brother and it has some sick artwork.
loved all of richard scarrys books, and an older book i have titled Deputy Dan
i also have a book about an actor dog that crunches his nose then rebuilds his life as the accordian nosed dog, can't remember the title and it's packed away
what age are we talking about?
for the pre adolecents there is always the "sideways stories from wayside school" series (one of them was the first book that made me cry)

I used to read
"scary stories to tell in the dark"
all of R.L. Steins "young adult" horror books
and this is embarrassing
all of the babysitters club books. :tongue:

I guess those aren't children's books....but those are the earliest I remember.

Oh...and those choose your own adventure books.

haha I read the "scary stories to tell in the dark" series, creepy pictures in those books!

Also Dr Seuss "Oh say can you say?" was a fun book to watch my mom try to read (it's full of tongue twisters). Anything Seuss rocked, it's like LSD in a book for little kids, when I saw those pictures and my mind went to work there was nothing like it, I'd let my little imagination go to work on each picture for several minutes.

Stinky Cheese Man! Yea baby! I remeber that book, I loved it! When I was a young teenager I used to read those Sweet Valley High books. I'd get them at yardsales and stuff, I had like 100 of them. I was determined to collect them all.

R.L Stine and Christopher Pike, too. Did anyone read The Last Vampire series by Pike? It was pretty badass. I used to read those books over and over and over.

I loved the Three Billy Goats Gruff. I can't remember which version it was, but the troll in it used to scare me.

"Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark"
HA HA, I loved these books.

Also my favorites were the goosebumps series, and various mythical stories with knights and armor and shit :smirk:
Now a days I like reading lots of stuff, as long as the writer is a genius and appeals to my style( LOTR for example)
