My Favorite Books of All Time, Part 1

I mentioned a while ago that I would love to do a post about all the books I've read, and I actually have lists of books I've read (yes, I'm rainman and keep a list) but to be inclusive I'd have to go waaaay back and include books I read as a kid, or books I read to my kids. Below is a list I had a lot of fun making. I surfed the internet looking for lists of kids books and while I'm sure I read a lot of books that weren't on this list, this is a pretty good collection of books I have known and loved. Some books might be listed more than once because I wrote them down as I thought of them. I started to get organized and alphabatize them but then realized since it's my blog I can just list them however they pop into my brain.
