    The one that most reminds me of being a child is Watership Down. It really freaked me out!

    It has to be My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards. My aunt gave me a copy when my own sister was born and I think it helped develop a real bond with my own sibling. Great stories.

    We are huge fans of the hungry caterpillar! My son has read it since he was little.
