Happy Weekend Everybody!

A general real question, what're your favorite childrens books! I've been procrastinating pretty bad on getting my little nieces and nephew a book each.

Also to Blitzn'Burst, no. Sorry but I don't think Question Duck can extend his specialized Wiimote finding services beyond the admittedly limited perimeter... Now if you were to sweeten the arrangement with some icecream or some candy...

Way back in the glory days of elementary school, I LOVED Arthur and the Bernstein Bears.
I'd recommend either for any younger kid. :)

And yes!! I spy with my eye Swedish Fish in the background! Love' em!!

It seems Question Duck had quite the sweet tooth, or should I say bill? :o

As for me, I read this one book called 'Charlie the Caterpillar' over and over again when I was a kid.

I really liked a book called "rocks in my socks" when i was young.

Snager, Dec 10, 2010, 10 pm

ah! i have been considering this very inqury to my self recently!

when i was little, i particularly remember Goodnight Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. also, any book of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes or any book of folk songs. particularly ones about animals~

i also got a book called The Orange Splotch from the school's library when i was very little. definitely not as well known and maybe out of print, but i think if it was something i legit read MYSELF when i was a lazy reader as a kid, it must have been AMAZING.

Guess How Much I Love You, Sam and the Firefly, Comet's Nine Lives, Trouble with Trolls, Fritz and the Beautiful Horses, and The Seven Silly Eaters were some of my favorite books in my pre- and early elementary school days. Once I was older, I found out that my mom had always tried to find books with awards for children's illustration when picking out new books for me. YOU ROCK, MOM! And today I find myself in art school studying for my BFA in illustration.

(In my older elementary days, I was into books like The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, and various series by Tamora Pierce)

Tophatt, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

Clifford Books were always my favorite!!


otaku_lady, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

Actually, no. ^.^ It's in correct, because everyone and anyone could update it, without checking their facts. It is not an acceptable source for college term papers.

Captain-Sheepy, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

You don't need teeth to be a sweet tooth! :D

WallsTalkBack, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

Where does a butterfly go when it rains? The dog who had kittens and one other one that I don't remember the title but it was about a sheep dog that wanted to play instead of herd sheep.
Also... Sweets! Is question duck going to share?

MasterComic, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

Horton Hears a Who. Best book ever.

IAMMIZ, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

Haha, I laughed at this both for the question and for the candy raid.

And my fav book was deffs The Upside Down Reader, yo.

FirstOrLast, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

My teacher lets us use it to cite our source. According to studies, Wikipedia is more accurate than Britanica.

General.Hankins, Dec 10, 2010, 11 pm

The world runs on Dunkin', Question Duck runs on Skittles,

I always liked the Dr. Seuss books
Cat in the hat, Classic

And if you really wanted to make it a special gift, I'm sure that your talents would allow you to write a short book for them, There are companies that will make a few hardbacks for you if send in material and I think it was $10 per book, depending on how many you make. Also now that I think about it, you might be able to sell said book here for a small profit, If you had the time. Just food for thought.

And Usually if I want to find out about something, I look on Wikipedia, There is Generally good info, and Wikipedia makes you site sources I believe, otherwise The Page you edit will say, NO WORKS CITED.

I found a Site that Kind of does what I was talking about, I don't really know the Particulars, but when I was in 7th Grade All of the kids made one for an English project.


RazorD9, Dec 11, 2010, 12 am

Always consider Wikipedia as a starting point and or a way to get general info on something.

Childrens books eh? Liked what KyledKat recommended, though books can be tricky as gift the older the are, mainly because of the kids interests. Know what they like and it makes it all the easier. That or if you have a feeling what they might like, then you can introduce them to something new.

Blitzn'Burst, Dec 11, 2010, 08 am

*has no candy or ice cream* D:

RandomNinjaGuy, Dec 11, 2010, 10 am

My favvorite book as a child was the trumpeter swan but back then I was kinda above average in reading ;-;

Yamataro, Dec 11, 2010, 10 am

"If you give a Mouse a cookie" was a favorite of mine.

Guest (Guest), Dec 11, 2010, 11 am

I LOVED The Giving Tree, as well as this one book where there was a blue bathroom and a kid with a yellow shirt who grew up and had his own kids. That's all I remember about it, though. ;-;

Only HandDrawing, Dec 11, 2010, 11 am

All the Cat in the Hat books :)

Dreamslayer (Guest), Dec 11, 2010, 04 pm


The site where everyone can make an edit?

Of course its a reliable source!

pwii, Dec 11, 2010, 07 pm

Wikepida is, and always will be, a source as reliable as someone you don't know. A person who puts time and effort to tell you this information for free. If you can believe your friends when they say Michael Jackson is alive, you can believe Wikipedia.

magi, Dec 11, 2010, 07 pm

Depends what that means. Wikipedia still cannot be use for primary source for research paper, for example... unless its original resource done about Wikipedia. maybe. :p

BM03 (Guest), Dec 11, 2010, 08 pm

I didn't grow into literature but I feel Curious George requires a mention here.

And no, Wikipedia isn't considered reliable where it matters, papers and such, even though it's content needs citations. You can always just GO to the citations and get your info directly for that source, but that wasn't the question, now was it?

Guest, Dec 11, 2010, 09 pm

Must be nice not being able to get tooth cavities as a duck. D: Apparently QD likes Airheads.

Freakazoid, Dec 11, 2010, 10 pm

no, because i keep messing up all the entries!!! GWAHAHA!!!

KiwiBasket (Guest), Dec 11, 2010, 11 pm

I wonder if QD's favorite holiday is Halloween.

Dr. Seuss was, and still is, one of my favorite children's books author. (If you mean by picture books, of course.)

I also liked the "If You Give A ___ A ___" series.
And a book called "Two Eggs Please". But maybe I just like eggs... xD

Fu!, Dec 12, 2010, 01 am

Corduroy was nice, and as mentioned, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie is excellent.

My dad's friend told me about an assignment he gives his classes. The task is simple: Pick an article on Wikipedia. Visit that article once a day for x amount of weeks. You'll be amazed how much it changes, even when the information seems indisputable.

I never tried it myself, but it wouldn't surprise me.

fluffmuff, Dec 12, 2010, 01 am

I think it really depends on the teacher.
When I was young, my favortie children's book was (and is) The Little Prince.

jthmlover8, Dec 12, 2010, 05 pm

well, it was less of a 'children's' book, but i particularily favored the animorphs, and the adventures of Holly claus

NAMEZ (Guest), Dec 12, 2010, 10 pm

calvin and hobbes. always calvin and hobbes.

michikalz, Dec 12, 2010, 10 pm

Yes! The Little Prince! <3
also, anything Dr. Seuss, hahah.

XxBloodxAlicexX, Dec 15, 2010, 09 pm

Childrens books?

If you give a pig a pancake
goodnight moon
If you give a mouse a cookie.

lol. i love those books.

OrangeJuz, Dec 16, 2010, 03 am

I am a kid now and I like two books:
Totto-chan (not sure if its a children book)
Geronimo Stilton (or however you spell it)


kittycatcupcakes, Jan 29, 2011, 08 pm

its deff. legit.

Thrudd, Feb 09, 2011, 12 pm

Wikipedia where the trolls .. er moderators delete entries citing the info is incorrect or needs cite-able sources even though the author is the author of the aforementioned information being posted.
It was a good idea but put in the hands of insufferable bleeps .....

Totema (Guest), Apr 13, 2011, 02 am

Depends on who you ask. My Biophotonics prof let my class cite it as a source. My Roman History prof doesn't.

I guess it has to do with how old-school your prof is?

DarkArtistSkye47 (Guest), Apr 16, 2011, 05 pm

lol not logged in

I like the way QD thinks. :D Gettin all that candy while the dude's not looking. lol
and I loved Dr Seuss. <3

Bluesy, Apr 26, 2011, 10 pm

Little jourdan rays muddy spud.

ComfortablyNumb (Guest), May 08, 2011, 12 pm

Unfortunately, to answer the duck, no. My teachers still won't take it as a legit resource source because "anyone can put their own information on it".

CometTheMicroraptor, May 29, 2011, 04 am

My English teacher junior year told me that Wikipedia is actually more accurate and up-to-date than Britannica, so.

The "anybody can change it" excuse is rather petty. People do go through a lot of trouble to make sure info is accurate.

Anzyme, Sep 24, 2011, 11 pm

The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, hands down.

America (Guest), Mar 27, 2015, 05 am


I recommend 'Lyle Lyle Crocdile'. Best ending ever
