  4. Goodnight Moon is so perfect and I don't even know why, but seeing it just instantly makes me feel calm. Egypt Game is a great one too; love that author.

    Gotta confess, I read one Junie B. Jones book circa age 8, and I was immediately APPALLED by her behavior. APPALLED.

  5. I loved HARRIET as a kid-- but I reread it to my son recently and we both HATED her. It was such a shock since it was a complete 180 on my previous feelings!!

  7. Great list! The Very Hungry Caterpillar and If you Give a Mouse a Cookie are so cute. The Giving Tree always makes me cry. I remember The Egypt Game! I read it a very long time ago so I don't remember too much about it, but I do remember enjoying it. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  8. I actually forgot about The Very Hungry Catepillar and am surprised you're the first person to have it on their list. Harriet the Spy was a lot of fun, I remember when the movie came out I also had my very own spy notebook. Haha.
