  2. Awww! Corduroy! I think I still own that one, but it's REALLY beat up. Guess that means it was well loved. Not sure I ever had the Madeline books, but I did watch the animated short ALL THE TIME. Oh, and of course, 'Poky Little Puppy' is a classic. :)

  5. I remember some of these, although I think some of them I read for the first time when I was older, like Madeline.

  8. 1. Corduroy! I had the teddy bear with the book and that made me love them both more.

    2. Julie of the Wolves is fantastic. Started a total obsession with that author's work for me. Did you have any other favorites from her?

    3. My mom loved Madeline more than I did, I think! But I liked how she was always so excited to read it to me.

    4. True Story of the Three Little Pigs is a great concept. We read it in 3rd grade and then spent a week or two writing and illustrating our own "true version" of something. Remind me to tell you about the further adventures of Sleeping Beauty (now called Christine) and how her husband turned out to be Prince Boring so she sent him on a 75-year quest.

    5. Oh, Shiloh. Every word perfect. Still one of my favorite books to this day, even though I could never get into the sequels.

  9. Madeline and Shiloh were faves of mine too. I remember when I saw Angelina Jolie named her daughter that and I immediately thought about this book and how much I loved it.

  10. I know I read Shiloh as a kid, but I don't remember much about it. :)

    My TTT.

  11. What a nostalgia trip - I remember The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! I think we had that book at school. I used to like Madeline, too. Great list!

  12. I love all the Frog and Toad books, so sweet😁

  13. I read the True Story of the 3 Little Pigs when I was a teen to my little cousins, and wow! That book was fantastic! Dr. Seuss was a favorite of mine too, with that book being especially dear, as my childhood nickname came from that story (Sam I Am or the shorter version, Green Eggs)

    1. I used to be called Sam I Am as well - even though my name is nothing like Sam at all. :D

  14. I was talking to someone else the other day about how integral Dr. Seuss is to childhood. Still love reading his books despite I'm no longer a child. Heck, even my kids aren't even kids these days!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  15. What a fun list this week. I may not have read these books myself but I read many of them to my children. Now I get to relive them again with my grandson. So fun. Some books really stand the test of time. My Childhood favorites

  16. I remember reading The True Story of the Three Little Pigs but I can't put my finger on how old I was when I read it 😅 And I think I'd heard of Madeleine when I was young, but I don't remember reading it.

  18. I probably read a lot of these, but when it comes to picture books, I honestly can't remember which ones I read!

  19. Green Eggs and Ham! I totally forgot about Dr. Seuss when I was making my list, lol. I also loved Horton Hears a Who. :-)
