You've got some good children's classics on the list! (Although I say that as a generalization - I've heard they're good. The only one I've read is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and I loved it!)

I have wanted to read A tree grows in Brooklyn. Great list- have fun!

I forgot how much I enjoyed English when we read Ray Bradbery, so I'm going to put him on my TBR list! Might have to wait until Fall reading 09 LOL
