I ran over here as fast as my legs could carry me! I almost majored in chidren's lit. I LOVED your list. Some other favorites:

The Frances Series. Kind of old, but SO worth it. Especially Bedtime for Frances.

Corduroy series.

Pinkilicious.

The Alice in Wonderland Pop-Up book.

The Easter Day Parade.

The Miss Nelson Books.

Madeleine.

Dr Seuss' Oh The Places You'll Go.

I loved your list sweetie. Sounds like you'll have some good readers on your hands there.

I concur with Lisa...you have to read pinkalicious if you have not yet. I remember finding it for the first time at Barnes and Nobles and reading it to my girls. The were in as much awe as I was. As for the initial list....Mo Willems is one of my new favorite children writers. That pigeon is just so dang cute! :)

Assalaamu'Alaykum :) That was a great list, even though there were a few there that didn't cross my childhood radar. I was hooked on Laura Ingalls Wilder, Tixie Belden series of mysteries, Bobbsey twins stuff, and stuff I can't even remember anymore! The Dr. Seuss is still pretty awesome, and oh! Charlotte's Web was a fave.

Oh, those were the days when I could read all day and all night and nothing could stop me. Hope your kids have a ball of a time reading. I remember the libraries having summer reading programs, where we'd get stickers, pencils, and erasers just for keeping track of the books we read; do your children participate in those things?

As Salaamu aalaykum,

sister I am launching a forum on attachment parenting within the confines of Islam and I need your help. Would you be able to email me?

I was influenced by British literature in my childhood and one of my all-time favourites was Enid Blyton's books: Adventures of the Missing Chair, The Enchanted Wood, Mr. Meddle's Muddles, oh and I loved Mr. Twiddle series!
You gotta get your hands on them... I think I may want to check to see if they are available in North America.

I like the Rainbow Fish. Not sure of the others. Check out some Robert Munsch books. I sort of grew up with them and bought them here to share with my students. Their favorites are always the Robert Munsch books.
