The first book I remember reading all by myself and because it went out of print a few years after this feat, I spent a good dozen years or so searching for it.

One of my very favorite books as a kid - it was the first book I remember picking out at the school book fair all by myself. I love reading it with my daughter now!

I checked this book out of the library to read to my daughter because it was one of my sister's favorite books when we were growing up. This is an old book, published in 1968.

This was an absolute favorite book as a child, and I've passed it on to my step-daughter & will do the same for my little one as well. It's full of imagination, adventure and friendship. A must for little girls!

One of my favorite books as a child - there are some pages that are un-p.c. that I struggle to read to my son. I'm developing a desire to plaster some of these old books with alternate narratives.

This is absolutely my favorite children's book of all time. I wish it was still in print! If you can find it at a book sale or library, read it to your kids, they will love it!
