I cannot recall the books from when I was very young but what easily come to mind are the Nancy Drew adventures. These books awoke in me the love for the mystery and suspense genre. I envied Nancy her quick wit and adventurous spirit.

I and my classmates back then swapped books and ticked off the books we have read from a list, with everybody claiming she has read more than the others. It was a status symbol in our day. I wonder if there are still Nancy Drew books out there. I would like to have at least one to show my grandchildren and say, "Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away ..."

I was really into series as a kid. So, my favorite book would have probably been a three-way tie between The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman, Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix, and The Two Towers.

I had a lot of favorite books--I learned to read when I was three. I have loved books since then. I'd have to say my all time favorite book to read as a child, was "Maggie-Now", by Betty Smith. I have most of her books in my library. Mrs. Smith's books have common theme-her characters are predominantly Irish Catholics. There are some non-Irish Catholics sprinkled in for flavor. Her books are rich in history. I highly recommend reading her books. :D

I really liked R.L. Stein when I was little. Then The Giver after I read it in fourth grade.

Before I could read for myself my father would read me a bedtime story each night. I had a fairy-tale book full of wonderful stories and every evening I would sit with him as he would go through the list so I could choose one. He must have had a lot of patience as, without fail, my choice would always be one of two stories - Beauty and the Beast or The Wizard of Oz. Once I could read well enough my favourite books were the Milly-Molly-Mandy Stories by Joyce Lankester Brisley.

GULLIVER'S TRAVELS was my favorite childhood book.
I was amazed later on in life when I watched a movie of the book. I highly recommend the movie to you

Alice in Wonderland is my favorite book as a child. My dad gave me a hard bound,colorful pop up book of this. I like how it is intriguing,interesting and magical and you wonder if the wonderland was real or just a dream.
