    I learned in one book that I read when I was 3.............. (started reading @ 2 1/2).....................The Little Red Hen - no wonder I am so partial to my redheads!

    What was your favorite book/story as a child & why?

    Thought it may make for a fun thread.....

    The Velveteen Rabbit. I never realized the moral of the story until I grew up, but what a fantasy that story is!

    Goodnight Moon, hands down. I love all the stories that have a good, melodic tempo when you read them out loud to your kids. I had my mom read that book to me (twice) each night when I was little. I also enjoy the books by Paul Goble, like The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses.

    eta because I was only paying partial attention while typing [​IMG]

    I learned how to read at four. I can't remember my favorite book when I was little like that, but at six I was enjoying Agatha Christie murder mysteries [​IMG] Seriously!

    My favorite children's book is The Secret Garden. It planted the seed (pun intended) of my lifelong love of all things garden and nature.

    Reinbeau, when I was that age I had every single Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys book there was!

    The "B" Book Dr. Seuss. I must have read that book a thousand times to my son too.[​IMG]

    Um, I read "Roots" in fourth grade...

    but way before that, I liked a book called "I Am a Bunny." Hee hee.
