I always like to see a list of favorite children's books. As the author of a new children's book of 10 stories for the under 8's, I need to keep myself informed of what is popular.
Maybe my book could be considered as a possible favorite?

Great pick. Those animals are amazing.

the paper bag princess, by robert munsch (because it has the most brilliant heroine ever) and slinki malinki (because how can you not love a lurking, thieving, mischevious cat).

oh my very favorite is 'caps for sale' by esphyr slobodkina....i used to act it out in my livingroom {i mean, when i was like 4yrs old..of course ;)}

but there are so many good ones.....

'lizzy and harold' by elizabeth warthrop is very sweet, i gave an old used copy i found to my best friend for his birthday

'i like you' by sandol stoddard warburg also makes me laugh, i like quote it to my friends...sometimes i send them text messages saying things like "you know how to be silly that's why i like you boy are you ever silly i never met anybody sillier than me till i met you" etc etc... good stuff!

I also loved Mr. Pines Purple house! I still have my childhood copy. I also loved pretty much all of William Steig's books, Wump World by Bill Pete, and Blueberries for Sal.
