Watership Down, The Hobbit, LOTR, & Once and Future King when I was 10 or so.

But when I was really little; Goodnight Moon.

Well, in my picture book phase is was hooked on Richard Scarry books (http://www.rotten.com/library/bio/authors/richard-scarry/). I fondly remember when the "Christkind" dropped one of these books early because I was sick.

My mum used to read a lot to me and my sisters; Michael Ende (The Neverending Story, Momo), Roald Dahl (George's Marvellous Medicine etc.) and Gerald Durrell (Rosy is my Relative) mostly.

I really loved Astrid Lindgren's books. I have all of them. Pippi is my childhood heroine!

But the first book I really devoured myself was The Hobbit. It was also my first book report. I even drew a map for every classmate to follow Bilbo on his journey.

The Babysitters Club by Anne M. Martin. I used to read those books all the time when I was 11 and 12.

My favourite book when I was little was 'Harriet the Spy'.  I was in love with it.  Then I also read "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe' too, but I never read any of the other Narnia books when I was little.

I loved (and still do love) Anne of Green Gables and all other books by LM Montgomery. 

There was also a book I really loved called "Fifth Chinese Daughter" but it got lost in one of our moves and I have never been able to find another copy.  Has anyone else heard of this book?

I've never heard of that book, Rose. You should google it. 

I don't remember if I've posted on this thread yet.

I read the entire Laura Ingalls Wilder series about 5 times when I was young. And everything I could find by Louisa May Alcott. I really liked the "girl pioneer" stories.

I did try googling that book and another book came up, not the one I read as a child.  It was probably written in the 1940s or 1950s and would be very hard to come by now.

I loved the Little House books, too.  They were my second favorite after the Anne of Green Gables book.  In fact I named my first baby girl (who sadly died before her birth) "Anne" and I used "Laura" as the middle name for one of my living girls.

Oh, and I also love the books by Louisa May Alcott (can you tell I love to read!) especially Little Woman and Little Men and Jo's Boys.

I loved the Little Critter Books when I was very small. When I was Older, I like American Girl and Little House Books. I still read those when I get extremely bored!

I love 'Little Women'.  And I used to read 'Little House In The Big Woods' a lot when I was little.

Oh, anyone else read the Ramona books when they were a kid?  I was a lot like here, lol...

I loved reading Dr. Seuss and those Shel Silverstein books as a kid. Shel Silverstein was so funny. I also read The Hobbit, and this one book that I found and never put down but never found it again, alas. It was called The White Panther I think. I don't remember the author's name.

When I was very young, my father used to read a book to my sister and me called Little Penguin.  I only remember the first line ("Little penguin was fast asleep at the zoo.").  My sister actually found a copy a few years ago and we have pictures of my father reading it to his grandchildren.    I also loved Five Beds for Bitsy about a puppy growing up and outgrowing several baskets to sleep in.

When I got a bit older, I read all the Little House books, lots of Nancy Drew and at some point (not sure of the age) I liked Encyclopedia Brown (I think that's what it was - where you read mysteries and try to figure them out from the clues before reading the solution).

I read quite a lot, so I'm sure there's more but that's what is coming to me at the moment.

Hey Celebrian, when I was very young my Dad read to me as well, he read Tom Sawyer, and Treasure Island to me, then when I was old enough to read, I liked Dr Seuss books, Henery Huggins books by Beverly Cleary, Alice in wonderland and A Christmas Carol. Also there are so many others that you guys mentioned that I liked as well.

I liked Watership Down, the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, Little Women and any book by Dr Seuss, too. I still love Dr Seuss, ahaha. And I still love Alice in Wonderland. I read it every now and then. Reading it right now, in fact.
