Am I in the minority of Americans who think bodily functions are impolite and not funny?

Captain Underpants is pretty good. I like the classics: Stevenson, Baum, Kipling. George the Ghost, and curious George if they haven't been mentioned. Oh for tweens, I recommend Hitchcocks Three Investigators.

I recommend Pingo, a brand new picture book by Brandon Mull. It's good for little kids.

You should consider:

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

My son is just over 2 and he loves the book. It has good drawings and reads fairly easy. It also teaches kids that even though they have a bad day from time to time, at the end of the day it's just not so bad.

Best books I got to read to or with my kids:

especially good for boys:
 Little Britches by Ralph Moody
Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff
Red Sails to Capri by Ann Well
The Master Puppeteer by Katherine Paterson
most everything by Lloyd Alexander

Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise J. McGraw
The Year of Miss Agnes by Kirkpatrick Hill
Strawberry Girl by Lois Lensky
Little Pear by Eleanor Frances Lattimore
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare

Some of these are not well-known, but they are some of our family's faves.

The Mad Scientists Club 1965 by Brinley.

Of course a shameless plug for my self published fairytales would fit here. :P

You probably already know this, Vanessa, but some of Lloyd Alexander's books are not good, like Time Cat.  I was just thinking of the Prydain Chronicles, for other readers.

O.K., Renoard, please post a link to your fairy tales.  I've been meaning to read them!

Little Green Stocking Cap is the one complete story posted. I have previews up at Fairy Tales but the full tales are only available in the book. Information on how to purchase the eBook anthology is located on the front page of my website.
