Monday Mania#19: Favorite Childrens Books

Everyone has books they loved growing up.  Below is a list of some of my favorite children’s books.  This list is far from complete, so if you feel that a book should be added to this list please add your book’s name and author in the comment section below.

I was a bibliophile before I learned the alphabet. From an early age I have used books to relieve the pressures of reality. I was I teenager before I appreciated the learning power of books. Now, as an adult, I read books for both learning and relaxation.
