Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parjunkee and Alison Can Read. This week's F&F topic/question is:

Q: What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?

To be a kid again...
I was an avid reader even as a child. I preferred a book over a toy even then. I was a HUGE Little Critter by Mercer Mayer fan. I even still have the books! (Yes. I am a book hoarder) Now I get to share them with my niece :)

I also loved the Berenstain Bears by Stan and Jan Berenstain.

This post has me feeling very nostalgic. What were some of your childhood favorites?


  1. I read both of those series!

  2. I'm only familiar with the Berenstain Bears.

  3. I faintly remember reading Mercer Mayer books when I was younger. Oh and don't get me started on Berenstain Bears, aaah. I absolutely love this nostalgia ride most of these FF posts been giving me. Love your picks, Jaz.

  8. Aww! Little Critter! I haven't seen those in years! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday! Old follower. :)

  9. I love Mercer Mayer. I especially like his book "There's a Nightmare In My Closet." It flips the normal idea of "monster" on its head.

    Also, check out this brilliant, instructive comic!:

  10. Ahh... Little Critter! I love him. The BB are timeless. I've seen a lot of them with this one. My kids love both of them which is awesome since it takes me back every time we read them. :)
