How is The Giving Tree not on here? I'm 17 and that book can still make me cry

I'd like to add a Dr. Seus fav "One fish Two fish Red fish Blue Fish" and "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak.

I loved number 5 growing up!

I would also recommend the chronicles of Narnia! I am curently re-reading them and they are juat wonderful light reads !! :)

And Alices Adventures in wonderland !! It's so sweet and so creative ! I will definitely read these
