I too loved Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume stories, but my alltime favorite books were: Caps for Sale and Simple Simon. I think Simple Simon was a nursery rhyme but I had the book and each line was illistrated. and loved that thing. I drove everyone nuts reciting it!

My favorite books were the ones my grandmother read aloud in the summer. A pile of grandkids would lay in front of a box fan while she read on hot afternoons during summer vacation. Two I loved were, "James and the Giant Peach" and "Little House on the Prairie."

I read a lot of Trixie Belden and Little House on the Prairie.
I think the Little House book could still offer a lot for todays young readers. Trixie Belden would need a Nancy Drew style update.

I am reading From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweilerto my girls right now. (E. L. Konigsburg,1967) They love it as much as I did as a girl, and think it would be a lot of fun to live in a museum.

The Little Golden Book called Red Riding Hood - I particularly liked the illustrations of the dappled sunshine forest.
