    In the great green room
    There was a telephone
    And a red ballon
    And a picture of-
    The cow jumping over the moon

    And there were three little bears sitting on chairs

    And two little kittens
    And a pair of mittens

    And a little toyhouse
    And a young mouse

    And a comb and a brush and a bowl full of mush

    And a quiet old lady who was whispering "hush"

    Goodnight room

    Goodnight moon

    Good night cow jumping over the moon

    Goodnight light
    And the red balloon
    Goodnight bears
    Goodnight chairs

    Goodnight kittens

    And goodnight mittens

    Goodnight clocks
    And goodnight socks

    Goodnight little house

    And goodnight mouse

    Goodnight comb
    And goodnight brush

    Goodnight nobody

    Goodnight mush

    And goodnight to the old lady whispering "hush"

    Goodnight stars

    Goodnight air

    Goodnight noises everywhere

    I used to make my mom read that to me every night :)
    My favourite children's book now that I'm an adult is 'Oh the places you'll go' By Dr. Seuss

    Great thread!

    I used to read the Berenstain Bears to my little sister.

    No wonder we're both basket cases.

    I used to read Penthouse Forums a lot (No joke).
    And I remember in 5th grade, the student teacher asked me what picture book I was doing for my reading journal and I looked up at her from behind a Sidney Sheldon book. She was totally shocked and sat down, "... I read that one too."

    And of course, Where the Wild Things Are, Curious George, X-Men, Voltron comic books and The Teeny Tiny Woman.

    How ironic that I'm replying to this thread in the Children's department of my work (library).

    this was my favourite too. i think that grover may be the basis for my anxious behaviour. pretty much all of the Little Golden Books were exellent. I also had a pop-up version of "the night before christmas" that was excellent. i think it's still around somewhere waiting for my own (planned, but non-existent) children.

    on a side note, my brother bought all of the McFarlane Toys "where the wild things are" figurines. they're pretty cool.

    alice in wonderland is another great kids book.

    Where The Wild Things Are
    Roald Dahl books (esp. Chocolate Factory, the Twits, The Witches)
    From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (I just re-read this)
    The Little Prince (very poignant if you read it as an adult)
    Beverly Cleary books (esp. Ramona)
    Judy Blume books (esp. Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret)
    John Bellairs books (spooky!)
    The Oz books (there's a whole entire series...they were like Harry Potter for me)
    The Babysitters Club
    Sweet Valley Twins (yeah, they were the reading equivalent of a Fun Dip)

    definetly 'Goodnight Moon'... my mom would read it to me every night before bed, so I get all sentimental and crap about it.

    the Berenstain Bears were pretty hype too, especially the one where brother and sister bear take a walk at night alone and get all spooked...and the one where they try to take a picnic but can't find a spot.

    there was also this book about this cat named Charlie that I had all the words memorized to before I could read. I think the book itself was appropriately named, "Charlie"

    I was such a hard core Hardy Boys fan. But now I can't even remember their names for sure.....thinking Joe and Frank? Wasn't the dad like Fenton or something?

    I must have boxes full of those books in my parents' basement. Good times.
