I couldn't pass this one up. Not only do I have my favorite children's book(s), My sons and I discovered new favorites when they were babies.
Go Dog Go was the first book I read and I still find myself quoting from it at odd times! "Do you like my hat?"
Clifford The Big Red Dog, I remember because it was the first book I got in 2nd grade from the Scholastic book order. There was nothing like book day in class when the teacher would hand out our new books.
Little House in the Big Woods I fondly remember because I remember my big brother coming over on the holidays and laying on the couch with me to read it aloud. Just good memories I guess.
These three, No Jumping on the Bed, Blueberries for Sal, Farmyard Tales Storybook are the three that I read over and over to my boys. In No Jumping on the Bed, I changed the names in the story to their names and for years they thought that their names were really part of the story ;-)
I think in Blueberries for Sal, the bear stole the show. This was my younger son's favorite book for a long time.
Farmyard Tales was one of those books that hid a ducky on every page. We spent hours looking for those ducks. I bet if I took that book out today, My teenagers would hop on the couch with me and look for the duckies. I'll try it tonight.
P.S. We read the entire set of Laura Ingalls Wilder books to them when they were in 2nd and 3rd grade. They still talk about those books and quote from them often.
Thanks for giving me a chance to relive my best days, Alexis!
