Many of the books I read, my sister and I both read. We have similar tastes - still do some times. She read them, passed them on to me. She taught me how to read at an early age.
There's no Such Thing as a Dragon: This book we kept at my Grandparent's house. I thought it was hilarious as the dragon grew and grew.
Potter's Kitchen: I loved the idea behind this book - the kitchen is the heart of the home. I still believe this - it also could be something to do with all the goodies in the kitchen.
Ernie's Little Lie: I loved the art aspect of this book - it probably foreshadowed my love of art.
Just as Long as We're Together: I read this book until it fell apart. I didn't realize there were other books in the series until recently. I can't wait to go back and spend time with those characters again. Again - this had a very different cover.
Winter Dreams, Christmas Love: My sister and I adored this book. We borrowed it from our cousin and "forgot" to give it back. She found it in my sister's closet a year later. unfortunately, my sister gave it back. I think we had words over it :)
Witches: Another book my sister and I loved. I read this one until it fell apart. I don't know why, but I've never read any of his other works.
Leave the Cooking to Me: My Mom made me buy this in a bookstore. I thought it looked horrible, but I was wrong. I really enjoyed it.
Emily of New Moon: I read this series over and over again. I always wished they made a movie series of these books as they did with the Anne books - which I also loved.
Tales of Fourth Grade Nothing: This book was hilarious! Of course the cover was different. There are certain parts of this book - and other featuring Peter and his brother that I will always remember. I also was so excited to meet Judy Blume when I was in library school. We had "a moment" when the man introducing her got her book titles wrong. She saw me frown at him.
B is for Betsy: I loved this series -as did my sister, also named Betsey. Plus, my birthday is on Christmas Eve - I felt such a connection with the younger sister Star. I started reading these in first grade - and loved them
