Walt Disney's Uncle Remus stories. I still have this book and it was my favorite!

Somehow, I ended up with a digital copy of the movie, Song of the South, when I was in Iraq. I don't think it was ever released.

Depends on what age. **** and Jane, Dr. Seuss, then Black Beauty, then the Hardy Boys. https://d3d71ba2asa5oz.cloudfro...son-2-reg1.jpg

One with moving pictures, I'm not much for books, no matter how bad that just sounded.

I was obsessed with all the Little House on the Prairie books. I tried calling my parents "ma" and "pa" like Laura Ingalls did (my parents hated it and I was not allowed to do it lmao) but also when I was young my family moved from Orlando, FL, to Tennessee and I was somehow under the impression that WE would also go in a covered wagon on that long journey.... Really disappointing when we piled into the old Astrovan.

O Cavaleiro da Dinamarca (The Knight of Denmark) by Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen
In fourth grade I had to re-write the book, paint illustrations, and present it in class.
Also, Disney books - I grew up with them. I still have them somewhere in my house - comic books and hardcover books.

I can only recall as far back as the Nancy Drew series and not being able to wait for the next book to come out.

You still active on Answerbag?
says azlotto on Apr 12th 18 (#2744951)
I haven't been for a while because the site is just too incomplete, and too many glitches. I do pop by every once in a blue moon to see if any changes have been made, but none ever.

I'd like to see some of the members on this site, especially Ice man, Linda, and several others.

I liked the "We Were There" series of books written for children about different events in history..There's plenty others I Iiked as well, but that particular series of books was the first answer that came to mind for me...Anyone remember them? Here's just one of many...

IT. Stephen King

Though as a child I read little. There were books read to me that I remember fondly. A few I kept up on. Judy Bloom and Stephen King.. though school destroyed reading for me. It was no longer about fun in a fictional world in my head. It was about diction, spelling,and grammar.. though also about “Book Reports”.. “Hidden Symbolism” or some other random whim of a mindless teacher, who took it upon herself/ himself to make reading a chore. It wasn’t until I got into my 20’s that I really started reading for myself. Hundreds of books a year. I couldn’t believe all I had missed out on. Though today’s education system has it set up where reading for fun is unheard of. It is just one more chore. That is a shame. I now love books and attempt to write my own. No thanks to any school I ever went to.

Little Black Sambo

I read that!Bet you can't get it now.
says Blewynanifail on Apr 17th 18 (#2747288)
Of course you can. The original Little Golden Book is 400 bux at Amazon, but other versions are five bux or so.
