I liked the Raggedy Ann and Andy stories, Nancy Drew, and Cherry Ames books. I wish I could remember the name of this series of books I read that was about the childhoods of famous Americans. I learned a lot from those books.

When I was little I like Beranstien bear books and Amelia Bedelia. (They were so funny, weren't they Savannah!)
When I got older I lked the Little house books and now I'm reading Sammy Keyes series.
There were alot of other books I liked too, like The Little Golden Books.

Hey Lori, perhaps your thinking of the Dear America series or the other one from the same company, I forget what their called...

Oh, I love those, too, Carol! Such sweet books. I like the Little Bear books, too.

Lori, I loved the Childhood of Famous Americans books, too! There were also the Landmark books that were VERY good.

Yes, that is what they were called. Those books really got me interested in history. I'm sure I read all that our small town library had.

I still like those. The rhyme and rhythm of Dr. Seuss is so fun to read to children. And Winnie the Pooh's wit can be enjoyed even as an adult!

When I was little I thought Dr. Sues was weird but when my sis was little her altime favorite was The Foot Book. I also loved Wonnie the Pooh!

THE FOOT BOOK! Left foot, left foot, left foot, right. . . . Feet in the morning, feet at night.....

That was my nephew's favorite book, too - and I'm sure that I still have the entire book memorized. :Hahaha:

And by the time my nephew had heard it three or four times - he had it memorized. (He has an amazing capability for memorization!) So there was no skipping a page here or there to hurry things on toward bedtime! :Hahaha:

I love to read, and I loved the LHOTP books when I was younger, (still do) and I liked the Mandie series pretty well. Now I love Historical Fiction books.

I'm not sure now. I think it was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, or Tom Sawyer, maybe Huckleberry Finn.

Bump
I guess it would depend on the age group we're talking about but I did read most of the Little House books as a child. I specifically remember the cozy feeling that Little House In The Big Woods gave me.
