I love the Anne of Green Gables and the Emily series by L.M. Montgomery; in fact I read several Anne books not long ago. Are there any children's lit. books that you still like to read?

Only recently I bought Madaline. I loved this book when I was a child and saw it on sale and had to buy it. It brought back so many memories. When my kids were little I had the chance to read to them Charlottes Web and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, which I really enjoyed, it gave me an oppotunity to revisit my past too. Its funny you mentioning Anne of Green Gables. I remember watching the TV series of this when I was little, many moons ago.

I love Charlotte's Web but it's been a while since I've read The Chocolate Factory. I remember the Anne of Green Gables series too; I think it was on Hallmark or Family channel.

I'm actually reading through that series right now (Anne of Green Gables). I actually started a long time ago, but stopped for a while. I'm reading Anne of the Island, currently. I also liked the Chronicles of Narnia. A lot of those books I consider "family books" not just children's books because they're something the whole family would like to read.

That's true what you say about them being family books. These types of books, for me, are what I also call comfort books because they're nice to go back to,even though I've read them so many times already.

As I grew up on Enid Blyton books I still love and cherish those, especially The Famouse Five. I also love Grange Hill, it was a long running series about a school in London and they produced a selection of books which I have read over and over again.

I still read the L M Montgomery books that I have-- Anne, Emily, Pat, Jane. I love all of them. Children's books are such wonderful things to continue reading forever because what you learn about in childhood really sticks with you and sometimes it's nice to go back and remember what that was like.

Aesop's fables, Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales, Mother Goose Rhymes, folklores and legends from different countries. I am always a kid at heart I guess because I still enjoy a lot of those kidss literature up to now. Well, partly because I'm a school teacher and I must have a lot of stories to tell my students. But not merely stories just for the sake of telling them. I share stories that have moral lessons in them.

"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" Betty Smith "All of a Kind Family" Sydney Taylor Best in Children's Books ~ series "Little House on the Prarie" Laura Ingalls Wilder "Anne of Green Gables" L.M. Montgomery (A-n-n looks absolutely dreadful, but 'Anne' with an 'e' is quite distinguished) There are so many of them...oh, and the Paddington series. Right now, I'm reading the first two books on this list for fun. Reading doesn't hold my interest like it did when I was little. Being a full time mum took care of that! ~Jael
