What's your favourite children's book

After reading Farmer Beau's Farm by Kathleen Geiger, I found myself reading it almost every now and then to my little girl. I was drawn to the way very pertinent issues such as family, love, acceptance, diversity and bullying amongst others were tackled. It was the perfect book to introduce her to the complexities of the life that awaits her.

I always enjoyed The Cat in the Hat. I enjoy the rythm and have read it to both of my daughters and both grand daughters.

Do I have to choose only one? A quarter of a century as a children's and young adult librarian has garnered many. A few favorites: Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson; The Lorax by Dr. Seuss (an environmentally conscious book ahead of its time); and Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle.

I recently reviewed this book myself, and I thought it had a great message and delightful storyline.

As a child, I simply loved reading The Faraway Tree series and The St. Clare's series by Enid Blyton. I could read them endlessly even now! :D

I absolutely love Natalie Babbitt's "Tuck Everlasting." I first read it in the 6th grade and just loved the story of the Tuck family, cursed with eternal life.

Recently I read Stick and Stone by Beth Perry. It is a sweet book about an unlikely friendship. Standing up for and helping others is beautifully illustrated by the main characters.

Herman the Helper. It is about a little octopus that goes around the sea and helps the other sea creatures.

The Chronicles of Prydain is the greatest fantasy series ever written for children. And I loved Harry Potter, believe me, but this beats it. In fact, I was introduced to the series when I was required to read the first volume, The Book of Three in my sixth grade literature class at Jewish day school. Let me tell you, I was the biggest Harry Potter fan back then. I read the books every night before bed, I reenacted the first film (that was the only one out at the time) alone in my basement in full Hermione costume, and I played the computer game with my little brother religiously. But when I read The Book of Three I was transported in a completely different way. I was mesmerized not only by the world, the characters, and the story that unfolded, but by the language. Lloyd Alexander is a masterful writer. His prose is lyrical and full of wisdom. For those who are unfamiliar with the story line, it's about an orphan assistant pig keeper later turned hero and king. We follow Taran, said pig keeper turned king, on a heroic quest to save Prydain from the clutches of the evil overlord of death, Arawn. Along the way, he is joined by a bard, a princess, a warrior, and a quirky furry little creature who can talk. Sounds like something straight out of an 80s movie right? Well, the first two books in the series were adapted into a Disney movie in the 80s titled The Black Cauldron, which I loved even though it differed greatly from the books. The Chronicles of Prydian are true classics. Princess Eilonwy is still one of my favorite literary heroines, next to Hermione and Juliet of course. If you haven't, read them. All.
