I liked the classics the three bears and rapunzel, and there was this one I forget the full name of the book, but I remember that there was a boy named billy brown in it, I liked that book, well anyway I thought might be nice to see what your favorite story books are.

This is going to sound strange but when I was a little kid, my grandparents had a set of encyclopedias that I loved! My grandfather would sit me on his lap and when he wasn't reading them to me, we were talking about the pictures. I really liked the ones with animals in it. We would do this for hours.

I absolutely loved The Princess and The Pea & Rapunzel. Unfortunately, I still do not know why a real princess could feel a pea hidden beneath tons and tons of mattresses.

My mother used to read me the fable of the mother hen who worked so hard in making a bread for her chicks. She called on to her friends to help her in preparing the ingredients, but the dog, horse, pig and the turkey,were too lazy that they all made alibis so they won't be able to help poor mother hen in making the bread. When the bread was done, she called on to her friends again, and they all jumped on their knees ready to devour the food that mother hen prepared. But alas, to their surprise, mother hen said, "I worked hard all day, but you never cared enoughto help me in preparing this food. Now, only my children could eat the fruits of my labor and you will all go hungry."

Hi apples99 Boy that is a tricky question as it was such a long time ago for me LOL I can't think of any books specifically that I used to ask my mum to read over and over again or that I read several times myself. We used to have a book with lots of different stories in it written by Grimm and also a book of stories called Aesopps Fables which I used to like and we read those a lot but there is not one single story that was my favourite.

I loved Hansel and Gretel and Curious George when I was young. When I got older I loved the Nancy Drew Mysteries.

Hmm, my favorite book was "panchatantra". I have doubts if you have even heard about it, just like I don't know the name you have taken as your fav book in your childhood. This book had some very good and informative stories to let children know about good or bad things in life.

I started to read when I was very little so when I was 8 I was reading novels, like Little Women. But I loved fairy tales and I still do. I remember about a princess that cried pearls instead of tears. Now that I´m old, perhaps my favorite is Red Ridding Hood. I also reread often a book that is suposed to be for children but really it isn´t: The little prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery. THis is one of the wisest books I have read about love.

One of my favorites was The Monster At The End of This Book. It has Grover from Sesame Street in it, which is weird because I really didn't watch the show and wasn't a fan. But for some reason, I just loved the book. I still have it somewhere. Cinderella is one of my favorites as well. I can never get tired of that story.

I like green eggs and ham, and this book called Stone Soup. Its a book about 3 monks that teach a village how to make soup out of stones. Its a good lesson in that book.

I liked all the silly Disney princess stories but I also like Grimm's Fairy tales. However, I have to say my favorite was The Velveteen Rabbit.
