The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka!

My mother couldn't hold back from laughing when she would read this book to me. She was borderline in tears every time lol. Really wish I had this book again just so i could relive those times with her...

Ah, I forgot, 'how to be a ballerina' is a book I got from one of the ladies at the church I used to go to. She was so kind and it came with a little pink tutu! I was so sad when i outgrew it! 💚

We love:

Happy Potter

I'll read them short stories I find on Tumblr, they really like the humans are space orc themed ones

I read kids books all the time. I just spent $120 on the complete magic tree house series and the merlin mysteries and I don't regret anything.

I read so much as a kid so it’s hard to say but my favorite picture book is either “The Bellybutton Book” (love Sandra Boynton) or “Wild About Books.” My favorite chapter book is maybe “My Side of the Mountain” or “Greenglass House.”
I haven’t read for pleasure much at all in years. Ever since my mental illnesses hit hard I lost enjoyment in things and get bored easily. One thing that helps are nonfiction books, since you can skip a page or flip to a random part and you don’t have to worry about missing a plot. I’m trying to ease myself back into reading to pass the time in quarantine and since it’s much more productive than social media and stuff.

I like middle grade books alot. Not exactly 'kid' but I've never heard of the merits of middle grade or kid's fiction outside of my own interest.

Holes. It's a perfect weaving of multiple stories together. Beautifully written.
How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found by Sara Nickerson. A great semi-spooky story. As a kid, I really related to Margaret and it's fun to reread and remember what I was like as a kid.
The Old Willis Place by Mary Downing Hahn. Another great spooky story. This was the only book I was ever able to get at a Scholastic book fair. I saved up for it.
Matilda. Obviously.
All of those royal diaries books with their pretty gold edges. My favorites were Nzingha, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Kristina of Sweden, Jahanara, and Sōndōk.

I guess I just want my invisible jet.

Guess How Much I Love You is a CLASSIC and my favorite book from my childhood
The Moomins series is wonderful & whimsical and was popularized by the 90s anime, and its really enjoyable for both adults and kids imo

  • Matilda by Roald Dahl
  • The BFG by Roald Dahl
  • All (yes, ALL) of the Geronimo Stiltons by Elisabetta Dami (special mentions to Fantasia)
  • The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
  • The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  • The Martine series (French) by Marcel Marlier and Gilbert Delahaye
  • Grimm's Fairy Tales

I know there's been some controversies around Dahl's books and perhaps (most likely) rightfully so, but I remember reading those as a kid and absolutely devouring them. Haven't reread them since so I can't say much on those controversies.
