    Children's Books

    I still have my hardcover book "The Velveteen Rabbit" which has a few scribbles inside, but still in decent shape. Also Captain Kangaroo read it on his show once.

    Here are a few more that I received along with this.
    Flat Stanley -Jeff Brown (40 years old)

    Thy Friend Obadiah -1969
    Amos and Boris - William Steig
    A Penny, a Look - Harve and Marge Stemach
    I realize these are older books, but most of these were best sellers in their own respective time.
    While I was looking through our family library, I found a "Donald Duck goes to Frontierland" book that sold for 29 cents when it was released. (My wife's book)

    So what was your first book and what kind of memories do you have?

    Re: Children's Books

    I had a fairly large Mother Goose and Grimm book when I was younger. It had all the classic nursery rhymes in it and I LOVED that book soooo much. I recently saw an updated version at my local book store and will probably go and buy it in the next few months, or ask for it for Christmas

    Re: Children's Books

    I have no idea what my first book was, but I have a Beauty and the Beast hardcover book that I was given and it's inscribed, saying happy 8th birthday with the date (1992), love mom.
    I still have it and it's in perfect condition and I plan on keeping it that way.

    I had a Holly Hobbie book that I read a lot.
    Oh and we had a bunch of little Golden Books - the one that stands out is a Super Grover from Seasme Street.

    Re: Children's Books

    I remember loving the Sesame Street book, "There's a Monster at the end of This Book", starring Grover. My mom was the best book reader. She even worked at my elementary school's library reading stories to the different classes.

    Re: Children's Books

    I still have two of my childhood book that I cherish the most!

    And I Mean It, Stanely by Crosby Bonsall

    The Great Sesame Street ABC Hunt By Norman Stiles & Daniel Wilcox
    This book was one of those books you sent away for and they write the book with your childs name included in the story! The publish date inside the book says 1975.

    I had that book, too! Thanks for the memory.

    I didn't really get into reading until 6th grade with Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh by Robert C. O'Brien and From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by K.L. Konigisburg. The in junior high I discovered The Princess Bride by William Goldman. My 10 year old just finished Mrs Frankweiler and I hope to have him read Mrs. Frisby over the summer. Good books just keep on giving.

    Re: Children's Books

    I love children's books and I've still got many of the ones I had as a kid. I still have that mother goose with the black and white checks and Adam likes that Monster at the End of this book too. I love getting to share books with him that I loved as a kid. One of my favorite books is The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes and I also love all of the Little House books.

    YES I loved that book!!!! I wish I still had it. Oh and Little Golden Books? I got a couple at the used book store recently. One was done BY the Walt Disney Co. From like 1971 or something??? I'd have to look at the book again.

    Re: Children's Books

    I think my first book was "Hop On Pop" but I am not sure...it may have been that or "There's A Wocket In My Pocket" (which was my first favorite book...Mom and I read it together all the time!). My favorite children's book however is "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs". I thought it was so funny.
