Media for 5 to 8 year olds

Write me about your favorite book or books you remember from elementary school.

I can remember my 4th grade teacher reading us The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. What a wonderful book! I also loved reading all the Nancy Drew books, the Little Bear books, a wide selection of fairy tales, and in 5th grade I discovered Ray Bradbury and Jules Verne. My daughter has loved a collection of fairy tales from different parts of Africa — stories collected by Nelson Mandela. She and I used to read my old Nancy Drew books at bedtime, but now she is beginning to move into YA literature as she starts 5th grade. She read all the Erin Hunter books about the wild cat clans this past year and made her own website about it.
