What childrens story do you love/hate?

My DD pretty much loves all her books she literally has hundreds so we read different ones all the time. She really loves Ballet Kitty and The Velveteen Rabbit. I do not like the pinkilicious/purpilicious books though. The main character is rude and never says please or thank you. Do you have any books you just love or maybe do not and why?

  • I have to agree to Alice in Wonderland too, it was just was to weird to me when I was young. Still not a huge fan to this day.

  • I cannot stand anything Dr. Seuss. All that rhyme-y rhyme-y match-y crappy singsong-y stuff. Drives me nuts!
    Also, my friend gave my son the book The Fat Cat Sat on the Mat, and although the kids like it, I can't stand it.

  • I hate "Bambi" It scared the crap out of me as a kid. The movie only made it worse.

  • Mommy mine and the Llama llama books are my favorites. I can't think of any I don't like, though some of the Dr. Seuss books drive me nuts. (The Lorax is still one of my favs!)

  • I still love the poky little puppy

  • I love Eric Carle's books - especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar. And maybe it's because I'm an elementary school teacher, but I also love Dr. Seuss. And my most recent favs are the Skippy Jon Jones books. However, I don't like Disney movie books. The movies, in that case, are better.
