Another mission for my friends!

Children's books. Post your favorites!

Ages 6 to 13-ish, I suppose...books you would find in school libraries. Fiction. You will not see me read anything even remotely as large as Harry Potter, so don't go there with me. Think more like novella or short story...Little Women, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants...stuff like that. Picture books are fine too (ex. The Giving Tree). Boy stories are ok, but I'm leaning more towards the female population. A great example of what I'm looking for would be two of my favorite books...The Boxcar Children and Island of the Blue Dolphins. LOVE. THEM. In fact, I lost these two books in Hurricane Katrina so if you happen to run across them super cheap or free...that would be awesome. :)

List your favorites here! There may be a random-name-out-of-a-hat prize involved. ;)

The Worry Stone by Marianna Dengler - It's a picture book with a beautiful story and inspiring-ly wonderful illustrations.
