To be a kid again

During my lunch break today, I took a some books with me and sat and read for a while. You know what books I picked? The Berenstain Bears! I used to love these books when I was growing up and it was great to read the stories and remember how much I loved reading about this cool bear family that lived in a sweet treehouse. The best things about these books is that they have stood the test of time. They can't age because their outfits were ridiculous anyway. They have very little technology (aside from a rotary phone), and the themes are things that still effect kids. I loved those bears. My favorite one from the series was "The New Baby" because this is when Sister Bear came along and I liked to think that it was how my arrival affected my family. Haha.

What was your favorite book when you were a kid?

You can come to my house and read those classics anytime! I'll even let you stay long enough to do a little free babysitting.

Hey! Is that your first comment, you lurker? As for the babysitting - no problem, but I can't promise your children will come back the same...

I love the Berenstein Bears! I always thought it was pronounced Bear-en-stain Bears, I still think of it that way. I liked Ramona, too. I love all the little Golden Books, Danny and the Dinosaur, The Velveteen Rabbit, the one about two dog biscuits, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, Little Critter books, other Beverly Clearys, Judy Blume, there are so many that I can't even remember now. A lot of stuff from Reading Rainbow. Children's books are the best! Just the ones that we had growing up though, who knows what kind of trash they're putting out now! -Lydia
