  1. I’m gonna give a shout out to Skippyjon Jones, Judy Moody, and Captain Underpants! Huge favorites in our house!

    oh my gosh I almost forgot Olivia the Pig!


  2. I love Sandra Boynton, Chicka, the Magic Treehouse and Chaim Potok. I’d add Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. I adore it. A great list you’ve got there.

  3. winey – yeah, can’t believe i left off skippy jon… he’s the best siamese chihuahua ever

    patois – a wrinkle in time is a fantastic book

    hay – i would read him in a boat, i would read him in my coat
