I love children’s books. Hopefully, I have used them to instill in my children a love for reading. I copied this meme from Bayou Quilts. Thanks, Jen.

1. Name your 3 favorite children’s series.

Mercer Mayer’s series on fear and nightmares; There’s an Alligator Under My Bed, There’s Something in the Attic, and There’s a Nightmare in My Closet.

Beverly Cleary’s series on Henry Huggins, a kind hearted boy and his lovable friends in the late 50’s Mid-West.

Shirley Hughes’s series on Alfie and his baby sister, Annie Rose.

2.Name your 3 favorite non-series children’s books.

Roald Dahl’s Going Solo; a biography of his participation in World War II. ( Mr Dahl wrote a lot of great books, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach.)

  1. Oh, some new ones! Jotting down more titles… Love the pictures of the covers, Deb. Thanks for sharing!


  2. Deb, I love the Hank the Cow Dog series – as much fun for adults as they are for kids. One of my best friends and I took her grandson on vacation with us one summer and I read Hank books aloud to keep him entertained. Sandy and I enjoyed it every bit as much as Stephen did!
