Each week, participants will blog about three children's books, often fitting a particular theme. To get the project started, this week's theme is just "favorite children's books." I am obviously a day late, but I wanted to get a post up so that I can get the word out about this fun idea.

How about you? What are your favorite children's books? Or do you find it as difficult to answer as I do?
