    It's up to you. It was hard for me to pick, too. I chose a chapter book that I read in early elementary school, but there were a lot of picture books I could have chosen, too. And really, my favorite book ever is The Westing Game, which I read at age 12. I thought that was really more "young adult," though, so I went with Ramona.

    I changed mine. I didn't really think about it, but I guess my original choice was more of a young adult and not so much a kids book. So I went with Berenstain Bears since I learned countless life lessons from this series!

  • Ok, one of my all time faves (an early chapter book) that I read so many times I had it memorized, was The Owl at Home.  I loved it so much my mom bought it from Scholastic books that they used to sell at school a few times a year. I read that book more than 30 yrs ago and still remember it, so it must have been good!  I recently looked online to see if I could get it for DS in a few years.  I found a youtube link on it that reads one of the stories in the book with the pics from the book.  Brought back some really great memories.  Check it out!

     I love this challenge!  I love children's books-one of my favorite courses in college was Children's Lit.

    OMG, I LOVED your book choice as a kid. Heck, I still love it as an adult!

  • LOL, I used Amazon to look, but then this one popped into my head.

    I was thinking about the Babysitters Club, but I wasn't sure if that counted as a "children's book".  But OMG I loved those girls!  Ohh!  And Goosebumps... RL Stein, hehe

  • Yay, I'm so excited! I definitely gotta go with Berenstain Bears because those were my favorites.

    Unfortunately, since I'm at work, I can't see pictures in siggies so I can't see anything that anyone picked. Sad So if I end up picking the same as someone else, I'll have to change it later.
