40 Books Every Child Should Read

Follow this link to the Half Price Book Blog's list of favorites; they've got it listed by book covers & seeing them will bring back memories for all you readers out there, I'm sure. 

I'm going to try to read them all this year.  How's that for a fun goal?!

What were your favorite childhood books?  Share, please; I'd love to add them to my list!

Avery's favorites (many from my childhood):
1. Professor Wormbog in Search for the Zipperump-a-zoo (Mercer Mayer)
2. Frog and Toad (series by Arnold something or other?)
3. The Once There Was a Bay series by Oliver Jeffers (a newer author, but very fun).
