All Time Favorite Children's Books

Hello!  I am embarking on a new adventure!  I am planning to write my novel this month.  I'm a little lot nervous because since so many people know, I feel the pressure to actually accomplish it.  But that is probably a good thing.

I am writing a children's novel.  I'm asking you to comment with your favorite or (if you are like me and don't have just one) one of your many favorite children's books.  And if you have a reason it is your favorite, I would love to hear it. 

I'll start.  I've always loved the Boxcar Children (the original.  I enjoyed the series, but it has nothing on the first book as far a quality goes).  I really like the way as a kid I felt like I was part of the adventure.  I can remember thinking that I could have a real adventure even as a kid.  And I could taste the berries and cold milk, and though I was not a fan of either in real life they sure sound yummy in the story.

Please comment below with your favorite book(s).  Thanks!

  1. The old Nancy Drew stories. I loved trying to solve the mystery and that she always did! Suspenseful but not gruesome or truly scary!
