    What a great collection? I remember many of these, though some of the series stuff, I didn’t read (though my brothers read Animorphs). We had Popcorn and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, those exact copies! My, we loved those books. I was a huge fan of the Berenstein Bears, and helped to wear all our copies out. Also, I still love The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

    When I was a bit older, I loved My Side of the Mountain, and other books by Jean Craighead George. Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume were a huge part of my life, and in case anyone cares, the new Ramona and Beezus movie is REALLY good, and true to the books. Thanks for the short walk down memory lane!

    #15 I can tear up thinking about that book. I credit those RL Stine books with my eldest son's love of reading.
    For those of you with pre-k and elementary age children I reccomend Patricia Polacco's books. Beautiful art and stories.
