    From further back, I remember fondly Richard Scarry's Busytown books and Goldbug in particular.
    I had all but forgotten the Goldbug searches, I think I need to get that for the Grands.

    Yep...my children also had the books. I'll never forget how my oldest would shout out, "I SEE GOLDBUG!"

    Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, then I read To Kill a Mockingbird when I was 12 or 13 and no other book has ever been able to knock that one off the top of my favorites list.

    I read lots of all of the Encyclopedia Brown books and a bunch of kids books about sports between about six and nine years of age. Then I read Lucky Starr and the Moons of Jupiter. It was a part of a sci-fi series by Isaac Asimov written under the psuedonym Paul French because they were written for kids. For the next five or six years, almost everything I read for pleasure was science fiction.

    Anything from the Goosebumps series. I've forgotten the stories by now but enjoyed them when I was younger.

    A lot of these already listed.

    Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird, Goosebumps, The Hardy Boys, but one of my favorites was The Hobbit. We read it in the 8th grade, so maybe it doesn't necessarily count as "childhood."

    "Wayside School is Falling down"
    "Space Cadets: Jerks-in-training"

    I know, wasn't into "deep thinking books" as a child, but those two books were my favorites. Truth be told, I still have them in my book collection.
