Childhood Favorites

A friend recently had a baby and yesterday I spent some time with them, bringing her some of my favorite childhood books as a present. It got me thinking about the books I loved when I was young and the books my daughter loved as well.

What were some of your favorites?

My parents are British immigrants so many of my early favorites came from the UK)
 

Don Freeman lived in Santa Barbara, my town, and named the lion in his book after the lion at our local zoo.

These are some of my daughter's childhood favorites. These books that, at age 18, she still remembers as favorites.
 
And once she was able to read books on her own, these are the ones that made an impact.
