So. I have lots of favorite books. But today I will just talk about, oh, maybe my top three all time favorites. (these have been favorites since I was a kid, I have other favorites which are more recent)
1. Carry on Mr Bowdith  by Jean Latham. Don't ask me why I like this book so much, I just do. By the way, it won the Newbery Award.
2. An Old Fashioned Girl by Lousia May Alcott (you know, the Louisa May that wrote Little Women). I can't explain why I like this one either.
3. Over and Over by Charlotte Zolotow. This one is a picture book. It's probably the illustrations that make this a favorite. When I was little, I spent the summers with relatives in Nebraska and they only had a few children's books in the house. So every summer I read Marguerite Henry's Album of Horses , Over and Over, Becky's Birthday, and Becky's Christmas (both by Tasha Tudor ) many times. Sadly, the two Becky books are not available in Harris County Public Library, and they are both out of print, so if you're ever in a used book store or garage sale and you find a copy of either one, you should buy it. but anyway, Garth Williams is one of my all time favorite illustrators, and I just *love* the pictures in this book.
