@betatesthighlander1: No! I saw that exact issue in my uncle's stash, took it, and "read" it more times than any Dickens or C.S. Lewis or whatever.

I was a fiend for this.

I was a big fan of neoclassical economics as a kid.

Kidding.

I can't remember, honestly. I read many books, but I don't think I had a 'favorite'. Possibly a book on bugs.

Oh man. I don't even remember...considering I learned the alphabet at 5 (it seems these days kids already have rudimentary reading and writing skills before Kindergarten, but we did not back then). I have no clue what my favorite was, but the things that stick out in my mind, in no particular order, are Goodnight, Moon, Paddington Bear, Peter Rabbit, and absolutely anything related to Winnie the Pooh.

@lykopis: I love Madeline! I think there was a cartoon of it as well? =O

We love our bread, we love our butter, but most of all, we love each other.

=D That's a cute song. Though, I might choose the bread over everything if it happens to be homemade warm bread. 0.0 I used to read Peter Rabbit and Winnie the Pooh as well. =D I love Pooh bear! Hundred Acre Woods is my favorite part about Kingdom Hearts. xD

@samimista: I was going to be offended but fresh French bread is rather difficult to surpass.

I grew up with a ton of Winnie the Pooh videos (there was a whole series of them). And I actually own a really old copy of the original book by A.A. Milne.

@sora_thekey: Oh! Corduroy! Add that to my list.

@akbogert: You're more than welcome to the bread! =D *hands a basket of French bread over* Oh wow! 0.0 Now that's awesome. =D I remember early in the mornings the Winnie the Pooh cartoon aired. I don't think the Heffalumps and Woozles scene is scary though. xD I think it's very creative. =D

@betatesthighlander1: Ha! I was a pretty eccentric kid but I never came to 3rd grade wearing corpse paint or anything. There was this one kid I went to school with though. Haven't seen him in over 20 years but I'm convinced he has someone tied up in his basement as we speak.

Definitely my favorite

I'm having a hard time googling a book cover that match the one I remember from when i was a kid, it's probably something valuable, I hope my dad still kept it safe somewhere. It's funny, until you requested an image, it suddenly hit me the thing might worth a lot /:

It's a children's book, not a comic book. But it is The Gargoyles. I remember the writing on the cover were like emblems, the words has a texture that made them bulged a little.

You said what we were reading when we were six and this was it.

Now if you mean first book that I remember having read to me, that's easy,

it's this.

I actually found our copy recently and reread it and I have to say, the little boy who owns the dog is A) A terrible pet owner and B) A total f##king c##t.

what happened in the dog book?

@betatesthighlander1: Well it's this super lonely dog who is on a cold floor in a pet store without any room to play, and the boy buys him and brings him to his home which is a farm. He calls over all the other dogs and they all start playing and then the other dogs start digging and the new dog can't dig. He's lived on a cement floor his whole life and the rest of the dogs are like, pft look at this loser, dog can't even dig (paraphrasing). Then they begin with judging of the dog and the boy tries to teach him to dig but then the kid gives up and the dog figures it out in the night and the next morning he's showing off to the other dogs and his owners so proud. Then the dog digs across town wrecking stuff up. I'm talking about wrecked roads, wrecked gardens wrecked fences, all kinds of stuff. His owner catches up to him and the other dogs are there with the judging again. And here's the part that pissed me off as an adult. The kid says you've been a bad boy and I'm sending you back to that cold stone floor (not exact but pretty close), eventually the dog digs a deep hole to run away from that prospect and he ends up digging a well and gets stuck. So the dogs and the boy make a chain of bodies and pull him out he gets excited and un-digs all the stuff putting it right and he uses his digging skills for good at the end like plowing soil for plants.

Here's my issue, his dog misbehaves once and he's going to send it back to the pound/pet store and specifies back to that cold stone floor. And hey jackass, you're the one who taught him to dig, you didn't teach him boundaries, and for Set's sake you made him feel ashamed for not being able to dig and then he gets excited that he has discovered how (completely understandable since he made him feel ashamed) and your like oh guess what your going back. Being a pet owner is a responsibility and you have to patient. It's like here's a little shot of happiness, oh you f##ked up once see ya. He ends up staying but come on kid, are you a sadist or something?
