HHD brings you

Children's Books! You know you love them.

The ones we grew up with,



The ones we made our parents read over and over again,




The ones we couldn't wait to read to our own kids,


The ones we secretly still read to ourselves.


The ones we avoid....for whatever reasons.



So. Would you, could you

tell me true? Which children's books

are the best for you?

The boy was greedy
He used the tree like a whore
And gave nothing back

Octopunk said...

Johnny wins.

JPX said...

Damnit, my first one was going to be The Giving Tree!

Was the tree selfless?
Nah, he was an enabler
Made the kid helpless

Octopunk said...

Goodnight Moon bunny
He wakes thirsty in the night
Gah! Nothing but mush

Octopunk said...

The Cat in the Hat
Uninvited, trashes house
A sociopath

Octopunk said...

Good little monkey
Always very curious
George stop throwing poop!

Octopunk said...

That tree was lazy
Produced one batch of apples
And never grew more

Octopunk said...

Goodnight Moon kittens
Play with yarn while mouse roams free
Throw those two bums out

Julie said...

Judy likes to feel
Daddy's freakish birthmark. Jeff
Reads Pat the Bunny.

Julie said...

Brown bear, brown bear, what
Do you see? I see a gun.
New shorter version.

Johnny Sweatpants said...

Waldo’s paranoid
And with very good reason
We all search for him

Johnny Sweatpants said...

Give Waldo a break
He just wants to be alone
That's too much to ask?

Octopunk said...

Waldo? Solitude?
Why's he always surrounded?
Make some sense Johnny!

JPX said...

Man with yellow hat
Set up a trap and stole George
What a fucking jerk

Loved the Great Brain books
Tom manipulates people
Yep, antisocial

Julie said...

Are you my mother?
No, you are a scary snort.
In my case, it's true.

Johnny Sweatpants said...

Anonymity
That is all that Waldo seeks
Stop staring at him

Julie said...

Good little monkey
Always very curious
Hands out of my pants!

Julie said...

Where the sidewalk ends--
In LA, it's every street.
Pedestrian hell.

JPX said...

The Pooh characters
Have psychiatric problems
Just think about it

Take Eyeore for ex.
Yep, Dysthymic Disorder
Needs SSRI's

Don't forget Tiger
Yep, bipolar mania
Needs some Lithium

What about Piglet?
Generalized anxiety
He worries too much

Then there's the Rabbit
Who is fond of making lists
He's OCPD*

Owl is easy
He's a classic narcissist
Mr. Know-it-all

And what about Pooh?
He seems confused about things
Yeah, he's retarded



*Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder

Johnny Sweatpants said...

I’ve got a theory
As to why he always smiles
Mr. Happy’s stoned

JPX said...

Disembodied pants
How can you not be afraid?
And they're green to boot!

Catfreeek said...

What's Yertle's problem
Turtle on a power trip?
Nah, he's just a dick

Gave friend's kid a book
called "Walter the Farting Dog"
of course he loves it

Dogs and farts are great
subject matter for all kids
they just have to laugh

AC said...

the best children's books
are also good for adults
and yes, johnny wins

maybe once a year
i re-read "little house" books
and yes, i own them

our fifth grade teacher
read aloud from "narnia"
yes, best class ever

AC said...

sorry, don't have more
i truly love the topic
but my brain is beat

Catfreeek said...

Those 500 hats
Poor Bartholomew Cubbins
He should have sold them

Harold drew his world
I want that purple crayon
draw me a mansion

Stop me if I'm wrong
If ham & eggs have gone green
They're not safe to eat

Every girl must know
You there God it's me Margaret
the period book

Margaret had issues
She couldn't wait to get it
the sadistic bitch

Catfreeek said...

Food for their small minds
I read to my kids nightly
Two chapters tonight?

Favorite of theirs
The Princess Bride was the tops
Read that one five times

Another they liked
The great glass elevator
Roald Dahl was twisted

Julie said...

Wizard boarding school
Would be so fucking awesome
Let's just admit it

Julie said...

Kiss your own elbow
If you can, you're a fairy
If you can't, you're not

Julie said...

Good little monkey
Always very curious
That is your penis.

Julie said...

A golden ticket
I think I need one of those
Where is mine, dammit?
