Looks like a great bunch of classics! Somehow, we haven't read most of them- I'm definitely going to have to get Harry the Dirty Dog for CJ.

I have to admit -- I have never read a Flat Stanley book. I really need to though, I have heard about so many people sending out Flat Stanleys to people.

@Jenny--
I agree with the kids on this one -- Harry the Dirty Dog is a great book. The illustrations are wonderful and the plot has a cute little twist.

@Angie--
Flat Stanley would be *great* for a child who has just started reading fluently. It is the simplest chapter book I have ever seen; the text is long (60ish pages), but the vocabulary and sentence structure are simple.
