So hard to choose!

I loved The Monster at the End of this Book: Starring Lovable Furry Ol' Grover. It made me laugh every time. Strega Nona by Tomi DePaola. Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Stieg. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.

My kids love THE MONSTER AT THE END OF THIS BOOK, Theresa--great pick! But reading it in Grover's voice gives me such a sore throat--I don't know how Frank Oz does it.

Mine would be the MG book, THE GIRL WITH THE SILVER EYES. It totally got me interested in extrasensory stuff and probably was one of the seeds that led to the Ganzfield series.

When I was little, I loved The Little Princess and Nancy Drew. As a teen, Judy Blume.

I had these books that my aunt always got for me that she had ordered with my name in the story. I always loved reading those and learning what adventures I was going on.

As a teenager, my favorite book was The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney. That's still an all-time favorite of mine.

Ooh, great question! When I was in elementary school, I fell in love with The Giver. It's still one of my favorite books of all time.

When I was a little girl, my dad would read a book call, Big Max, the World's Greatest Detective by Kin Platt.

Later in life I read every single one of Rolad Dahl's books, and the Goosebumps book. Just the other day at work (I work in a bookstore) I saw the Goosebumps book that got me hooked on reading,and I almost ended up buying it.

Besides The Lord of the Rings? :-)
I loved Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising series, and Madeleine L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time series and anything by Janet Lunn and Jean Little and Katherine Paterson and Beverly Cleary and L M Montgomery and C S Lewis and... Okay, I'll stop now. But there's more!
