The top 10 from the list are:
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice SendakSo my kids' childhoods were not at all deprived but I have to date myself and say that more than a few of these were written long after my childhood had passed. Hopefully it counts that I have read these to my kids and will likely read them to my grandkids as well (if I ever get any).
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
Good Night Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judy and Ron Barrett
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst and Ray Cruz
Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt
Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
My favourite childhood book did make the list but not until #39. What about yours? Is it on the list? Is there a book you loved that was missed?
Here's a treat - some very cool authors reading my favourite One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss.
