My mama used to always read us the Berenstain Bears when we were younger. They were given to me now that I have kids, and I'm adding to the collection that she started all of those years ago. :D

The book that first gave me a love of reading was Christopher Pike's Spooksville #3 The Haunted Cave. I still have it and am still collecting them (for my kids, so hopefully they actually have an interest in them later on.) ;)

come to think of it i am looking to find the rest of the serendipity press series by cosgrove. I loved them as a kid and they were the most wanted books in elementary school. then one year they had to make room for more books and POOF they were gone!  :o i have about 14 of them but i think there are over 50 in the whole set.

I know that someone on here had a couple for sale. (I have Jingle Bear and Crickle Crack.)

I still have a game from when my brother was younger, and I pulled it out to play it with my kids a few nights ago and realized I didn't know the name of it, so I looked it up. It only took a few seconds to find the name: Turtle Recall. It was interesting to see the instructions and learn that we'd been playing it "wrong." ;)

I had a number of the harcover books when I was younger but only kept The Little Mouse on the Prairie. Wikipedia has alist of the books - apparently there have been more than 70: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serendipity_%28book_series%29  I've since got some more. I always wanted the book 'Flutterby' because the pictures are so lovely. I only like the books for the pictures - I don't really like the stories at all and I've always thought the portraits of the author/illustrator were creepy! I have another book by Stephen Cosgrove because it's a troll book - he wrote a series of Treasure Troll books. The illustrations are by someone different (and not at all as nice as the ones in the Serendipity books).

Oh this is a good site: http://www.iblist.com/ it's an internet book list so you can see all the books by an author or in a  series etc...

I've been looking for a number of books for a while now.

1. A book about cats, might be two books. All I remember is: there were two kittens who got jealous of another cat or kitten coming to live in their home and they scratched their owners knees, and a cat who thought another cat, called Jenny, was drowning but she was actually dancing.
2. A series of books about animals, a dog who I think was called Jessie, and a pig, amongst other characters. The pig had to babysit once. I can't remember the outcome, but I don't think it was good.

I'll post again if I remember anything more.
