I've been re-reading the Little House books while reading them to my DD. She isn't as into them as I was though. I also have the whole series on DVD (over 300 episodes!) and thinking maybe I will get her to start watching them to get her more interested in the books.
She's only 7, but I'd love for her to enjoy the stories as much as I did.
Little house was a big influence on me when I was a kid. I loved the stories (still do) and the show. I also loved to read Enid Blayton and Judy Blume. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was a favourite.
I also think I wore the cover off of my Charlie and the Chocolate factory book! That one I have read to DD and she loved it too.
So what are some of your faves?
