There was another thread started about favorite short stories and my mind became inundated with children's books. I hope that's not a reflection of my reading comprehension. It also doesn't help that I read The Giving Tree to my goddaughter the other night and found myself getting very sentimental. Both my older brothers and I can also recite the boy's entire name from Tikki Tikki Tembo after thirty plus years after reading the book. A couple others that will always be near and dear to me are There's a Nightmare in My Closet, The Five Chinese Brothers, and any one of Shel Silverstein's books. What are some children's books that have stuck with you through the years?
