Girly books

For some reason I'm really excited to have a girl so that I can read/ share with her some of the classic chick lit. My list so far

Little house on the prairie series
Little Women
A Little Princess (I've actually never read the book but loved the movie so I will be reading this)
Girl of the Limberlost
Anne of Green Gables
Harriet the Spy

Some less girly ones
James and the Giant peach
Charlotte's Web
The Hobbit (I don't know if I could read it a second time but it was a great book)

What are some books you loved read to you, or reading by yourself, as a kid?

Wow I think Whitney has it covered! I ESPECIALLY loved Amelia Bedelia! So. cute. I also bought "just going to the dentist" by Mercer Mayer for Jeff to read to Claire. I love his books with the little creature. just a suggestion.
