The other series I liked but had only 2 books of was Judy Bolton. And another close runner-up is the Little House Books. I also loved Mary Poppins and Betsy and Tacy, which I saw others have mentioned.
Name your 3 favorite non-series children's books.
This is harder. I didn't read many children's books when I was growing up. Mostly, the series and adult books for as far back as I can really remember. I mostly know YA books from my days as a YA librarian. One children's book I read as an adult that I loved is Holes by Louis Sachar. Others are The Girl in the Box by Ouida Sebestyen and Z for Zachariah by Robert C. O'Brien. I do recall loving books from the Arrow and Tab book clubs when I was a kid. One about a woman with a daughter who married a man with twin sons, one of whom was troubled, has stayed with me. I don't recall the title or author, but I remember the story so well, even the names of the teen boys: Adrian and Andy.
And of course, there's always Dr. Seuss. The Cat in the Hat is my fav of his books.
Name 3 favorite children's book characters.
- Ned Nickerson from Nancy Drew. In the early books, he was the perfect guy.
- Laura Ingalls Wilder. A real person, she made the perfect character.
- Mary Poppins. She was a force to be reckoned with.
