Books: What Are Your Favorite Children's Books?

I am clearly older than your other respondents. When I was quite young, my parents read me Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey and Ferdinand. Also, the Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter as well as many of her other "tales". After I learned to read, I adored Winnie-the Pooh by A.A. Milne (this was long before Disney took Pooh over). I also truly loved such classics as the Secret Garden, Heidi and Little Women. In a lighter vein, I enjoyed Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames ( a nurse series) and another series about a nurse--Sue Barton.

Lark Rise to Candleford

As a rule, these days, Lark Rise to Candleford is on (when it is shown) on Sundays at 6:00 p.m.--- not close enough to prime time. Last spring and summer, it was on on Fridays at 9:30 p.m.--much better. I wish there could be more publicity for this outstanding series. That is the greatest drawback to having no KPBS monthly magazine any longer. The best part of the magazine, as far as I was concerned, were the Highlights section and usually, the feature article. Because there was no notice of any sort (at least not that I saw), I didn't realize KPBS had begun showing Series Two of Lark Rise..I am now rewatching Series ! on DVD which the Public Library fortunately carries, but I missed at least 3 episodes of Series 2.
Please, please KPBS--repeat it and put it on at a better time--not all of us have DVRS or Tivos.
