Great Children's Book Recommendations

Here's a wonderful article by Mr. Sheehy at A Teacher's Writes about his children's top 20 favorite children's books, according to the kids.  
The 20 Best Children's Books ... according to my children, so far.
Great recommendations, I look forward to reading some of the titles mentioned that we have not yet read.  

Also, check out James Patterson's new web site:  Read, Kiddo, Read.  I was particularly pleased to see Dear Zoo included -- it's one of our very favorites!

I'd love to suggest "Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel." When my boys were young, it was a favorite!
Any of Virginia Lee Burton's books are oldies but goodies!

Thanks for the suggestion! My mother-in-law has Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel at her house and reads it to the boys when they stay there. It was my husband's very favorite when he was a little boy!
