Well, if it's the first book (or rather something of similar nature) then that would be "Grimms' Fairy Tales" (read age 3-5), although when I think of a book from my childhood it always is a first 'real' book I read and that was 'Monument' by Lloyd Biggle, Jr. Quite a good, light sf story, although I may be bias.

My favorite and probably only real childhood book is "de monster van frankenzwein" of Marc de Bel (i'm live in belgium so the book is in dutch). If I would translate it to english it would say 'the monster of frankenzwein." Basicly it's about, you guessd it, frankenstein pigs. I really love the book and it really made me read alot more. But most children books wasn't made for me so i started reading adult books at the age of 12 (i think so, can't be sure it's along time ago) hence the only part

A book called Dragon's plunder by Brad Strickland. It has a nice twist ending that I enjoyed.

When I was little, I loved the books "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats and "Is Your Mama a Llama?" by Deborah Guarino.

I remember my first book was My Side of the Mountain which was originally a book I had assigned to me for a school report in the 1st grade. It's what got me really into reading because I hated that stuff when I was a kid. After that, I just devoured books. My childhood favorites were the Xanth books, starting with A Spell for Chameleon.

Most of Dr Seuss' works. I loved Cat in the Hat and the Lorax especially.
his illustration style just amuses me. I love him more now because of my love for design

Mine goes to Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat. I remembered in my childhood that I really liked the book that much that I always scribbled every page with crayons illustrating a cat looked like a stickman. Memories...

Le Petit Prince prolly doesn't count, since even though it's a children's book I didn't read it until recently...
When I read for the first time Le Petit Prince I was already 9-10 so I really don't count it as a childhood book either but I really liked it and reread it many times at different ages. I think it's a good book.

Otherwise... I loved Poppy by Avi, and the Bunnicula books. =v=
And I also liked Captain Underpants a lot! xD

I'm not sure if you could call it a book, but I loved to read Captain Underpants when I was a kid. I also liked to read Harry Potter. The first few books were children's books, and the later books pretty much grew alongside me.

i've been a big reader since the age of three, and there had been so many books that have come and gone my way (most of them trivia related and whatnot) but my favorite has always been the Goosebumps books. it may be kind of a weird choice for childhood book favorite but i love it. maybe it's my fascination for mysterious things and non-existent creatures that made Goosebumps a favorite.

Well, I think they were:
1-a huge book of short stories about a 3 siblings that passed the days imagining all sort of things like dragons, castles, UFO and space-ships to pass time, I don't exactly recall the title
2-Alice in Wonderland
3- The Wizard of Oz (I clearly remember that I actually forced my mother to read it to me as bed-time story until I finally learnt to read by myself...xD)

Nancy Drew XD after i got interested in the series, my family gave the books to me as birthday and christmas presents a few years after.

Oh man, I totally forgot about Nancy Drew! That was definitely one of my favorite series as a kid, and probably the main reason I still love mysteries. XD

Oh man! Too many... and I still read children's books. =P But let's stick to the ones I really remember.

Alice in Wonderland, definitely. When I was probably around 7 or 8, my grandma gave me her copy, which her father had actually given to her when she was nine years old. =O It's still one of my favorite books, which is why people quickly learn never to mention Tim Burton around me. >_>

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Again, still some of my favorite books. And in this case, I am actually a HUGE fan of the film versions.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which I probably should not have read until I was in my teens, but blame my brother for that one. XD

The original Sherlock Holmes stories. Again, I actually, surprisingly, liked the recent film adaptation. =O

Robin Hood. I don't remember what version I read, but it was old, and I loved it. Same with King Arthur, although I'm pretty sure the one I read was King Arthur and the Knights of his Court, adapted from Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur.

The Anne of Green Gables series.

Oh! The Little House on the Prairie series. My dad read that to me while I was in the hospital when I was very young.

The Westing Game. I loved that book so, SO much.

And Harry Potter! Who could forget Harry Potter? I read the first four books (that is, the good ones =P) when I was around 10, and actually only finished the series a couple years ago.

 :corner: did someone say the little prince? that's my favorite book! but i only got to read it when i was already an adult so i don't think that would qualify for my answer ^^

so i'd have to say dinosaur books! i had a lot of them when i was a kid. with full colored and glossy pages too. i can still remember my eyes going wide with delight when my aunt gave them to me. i think i was 5 then  :loli:

My mother read to me a lot when I was a child; Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl's children's stories, Gulliver's Travels and all kinds of stories from Greek mythology. My favorite books, however, were Mark Twain's Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

What, no love for The Little Prince? That book is very much responsible for who I have become. Though it's probably unfair to blame Saint-Exupery for that.

I really loved and still regularly read many of Robert A Heinlein's books, such as "The Puppet Masters", "Have Space Suit - Will Travel", "The Sixth Column", "Farmer in the Sky", "Tunnel in the Sky", etc.

If I really had to choose one though I think it would be "The Puppet Masters", which I read at a much younger age than for which it is likely intended (I read the re-released, uncut version that was published in 1990).

"J.T." or "J.T. and the Alley Cat" by Jane Wagner.  There was already a movie out for it but I've never seen it.  Scarred me when I was young but I've never forgotten about it.  Hmm... it's no wonder my other favorite book is "Bridge to Terabithia" by Katherine Paterson. I felt betrayed as a kid, "Why would they let children read this?"

My favorite book growing up was Folk Tales From Russia by Mark Vatagin.  My dad bought it in Moscow, which is where it was published, so it was pretty legit.  My favorite stories were the Tuvan folktales about the orphan boy Oskus-Ool.  He was something of a Tuvan folk hero, so there are quite a few stories about him.  He was kind of like the Tuvan Tom Sawyer, only if Tom Sawyer was good at chess and ran around beheading corrupt Khans.
