    Default What books are you going to pass down or have passed down

    to your children or nieces or nephews?

    for me my list so far is
    The Little Engine Who Could-I would always be so hopeful after that book
    WHere the Wild Things are
    All the Dr.Seuss books
    If You Gave a Moose a Muffin
    Shel Silverstein Books Including Where the Sidewalk Ends and The Giving Tree

    I'm sure there's more but that's all I can think of
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Sacred books containing stories and fables from my Kashmiri culture - they're quite old, but are very precious to me and my family. We keep them stored in our small temple area.

    I passed down a lot of old books to my cousins. Lots of goosebumps mostly. Other things too.

    I would probably pass down the color fairies as that was my original childhood book. honestly as a little kid I didn't read much. I didn't do much reading until my teen years outside of the homework. as teens I'd definitely pass down Where the Red Ferns Grow.

    I have many books. The Heart of a Lion, The Soul of a Woman, a biography of Joshua Chamberlain, is probably the one I most hope my son will take when he is older. I found Chamberlain to be an inspirational person, and I feel he is a good historical role model.

    My collection of psychoanalysis books consisting of Jung, Horney, Freud.

    Erotica written by Georges Bataille and Anais Nin.

    There's stuff I'd pass down if interested in the matter only and if they're old enough, like Child C: Surviving a Foster Mother's Reign of Terror by Christopher Spry or From Cradle to Grave: The Short Lives and Strange Deaths of Marybeth Tinning's Nine Children by Joyce Egginton.

    Something for teenagers: Christian F. - We Children From Bahnhof Zoo, some of Charles Dickens works, Dead Poets Society, literature about the II. World War: The Reader by Bernhard Schlink, Anne Franks Diary of course, The Last Witness: I Was Hitlers Courier by Rochus Misch.

    Other stuff:
    Vollidiot by Tommy Jaud. It's a rather funny one. But I'm sure even in 20 years time the world won't have changed enough to not be able to portray the struggles of a young adult as good as it does. Also, the writing style is extremely nice.
    Something more philosophical would be A la recherche de Marie, but that's more a book for a female teenager. Not suited for kids.
    I'd give Cathy's Book by Sean Stewart to a young teenager to try, cause it's written with a lot of care and is impressingly creative (without being cheesy) for a child's book.
    We get along
    for the most part
    Me and reality



    I don't see any sense in always being mad at the world
    I'll admit I just don't care
