The Giving Tree -- Uh, could the boy possibly find any other way to meet his needs/wants without the tree repeatedly sacrificing herself? I was just talking about this book with someone who said that her mom always said it was a great example of how parents sacrifice for their kids. Uh, I suppose, in some cases that's true, but I don't think those are *healthy* parent-child relationships.
Can you say "co-dependent?" Hate that book, sold it at a yard sale!

I am totally conflicted about Runaway Bunny. It always seemed VERY creepy to me before I had a kid, but now I "get it." At the same time it still eeghs me out a little. DD is completely fascinated by it for some reason--I think it appeals to her two-ness.

Speaking of lines like "blow me," we have had a hard time reading our beautifully illustrated copy of "The Owl and the Pussycat" with a straight face. "Oh lovely pussy....oh pussy, my love....what a beautiful pussy you are, you are!"

I don't really care for the biologically inaccurate "Time to Sleep" either. Also, although I love the art, "Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me"'s story is weirdly confusing at the end.

One that makes me crazy is called "Farmer Duck" or something like that. It's about a farmer who's lazy and makes the duck do all the work feeding and herding the other animals. Then the other animals feel sorry for the duck and band together to overthrow the farmer. Okay, so I appreciate the socialist element, but dude, if all you animals have human agency and consciousness, why did the duck have to herd you and plow the fields and all that in the first place? : Makes no freaking sense.

grateful mother to DD, 1/04, and DS, 2/08

Thank you! No one understands my deep-seated hatred of this book.

Oh, and berenstain bears. Seriously. I tossed the Berenstain books, but DS always manages to find them at the library. I swear, he has radar.

Oh, and Max and Ruby, because DH and I think Ruby buried their parents in the cellar.

Hmm - Not many I hate. But then again we are past the read it one more time stage

I did make a big ol' whoops though when in my anti-Disney stance I picked up the original versions of a bunch of fairy tales. Having the evil stepmother wanting to eat Snow White's heart and lungs was a bit much for me - so I skipped it. Unfortunately on the previous reading dh had not - my gruesome girl wanted that page read over and over...

Sleeping beauty and Hansel and Gretel were also big hits - ack!!

Yeah, we got that one from the library recently, and I was bothered by the same thing!

I thought of another book that bugs me - Is Your Mama a Llama? The words are kind of awkward and the rhythm isn't always quite right, but I think what bothers me the most is the illustration of the kangaroo. Its front legs bend the wrong way and its feet look like hooves! If you were getting paid to draw a picture of a kangaroo, don't you think you'd take a minute to look at a photograph of one and find out what they actually look like?

And on the topic of scientific inaccuracies, has anyone else ever noticed how many children's books encourage the mistaken notion that the moon is out only at night? Like in the Going to Bed Book where she says "And when the moon is on the rise . . ." implying that this happens at the same time every night. Or another one we got from the library once where the sun talked about all the things it had seen that the moon would never see.

"Click Clack Moo?" Is that it? I really dig that one. I mean, you can't beat unionized cows in a children's book.

I have the exact same problem! Luckily, DS is not a big fan of this one and usually turns the page before I have to wax poetically about the lovely pussy.

Guess How Much I Love You is really the only book I can't stand. DS feels the same way, so it's not a problem.

Oh, Go, Dog, Go is his favorite. I don't mind it too much, although I do wonder if night is not a time for play, why are those 3 dogs having a party, on a boat, at night?

Love this thread - LOL. I have never been a fan of Dr. Suess. Aren't we "supposed to" love him? I do kind of like Mr. Brown can Moo, Can You? Only because my 1 year old really likes it and is so darn funny as he tries to make all the noises.

But, Green Eggs and Ham drives me batty. My 6 year old used to like me to read that to him when he was about 2. Now, it has "mysteriously dissappeared" from our bookcase - lol. Way to repetative for me.

Sam and the Firefly. I HATE HATE HATE it.

And anything by Hans Christian Anderson. The man was a #*&%ing sadist. People have given us beautifully illustrated versions of both the Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling (in situations where I couldn't prescreen) and they are mean, violent and the messages are horrible. My only consolation is that my girls prefer to be the sea witch and her poisonous snakes.

There is a page in "Max's Bedtime" that I have always loved!

It's the one where Max is all wrapped up in the argyle-patterned toy snake, and the caption is: "But Max could not relax."

I so want a T-shirt with that on it.

The Max and Ruby cartoon, though.....

Can you believe that when that book came out, there were legions of "good citizens" going around pasting paper diapers over the child's genital region in libraries across the country? Could Americans get any more repressed? :

wonder if they have done the same thng to the once upon a potty books
Speaking of...i dont mind the book, i hate the lingo " A pee pee for making wee wee" I change it to penis. We dont need little cutesy terms for boy parts

Another one i thought of is the Babar books. I got a bunch of books from a previous coworker when her daughter outgrew them to have on hand for my nephew. I started reading it to him one day and had to stop because of his mother being killed or whatever th story is.
It is buried on a shelf...i just need to go get rid of it!

And i agree about the bad rhyme in "Goodnight Moon" Drives me nuts !

I'm over it now, but I used to skip over the hat part. Talk about a jarring departure from the storyline! It did make for an amusing moment while DH and I were watching Lost, though...

That Eric Carle moon book does have one of the weirdest non-endings ever. It drives DH nuts!

OMG this thread is so funny. I have to ask dh which ones he hates. I know we had some book like I'll love you forever, but it was the female version with the dying father at the end and the dd is taking care of him-UGH! Weird! Gone! We also had a book, both of these were grandparent gifts, called "The Littlest Angel" Freaking awful and it too is gone

I hate any cartoon, Disney movie book and we don't own any-thank God!

Eric is a big fav around here, but I can see how some of them a can be viewed as weird and boring.

We're going on a Bear Hunt-loved it as a kid, bought it for dd and now I HATE it!

Fairy tales, but dd LOVES them and is way into Red Riding Hood as well and MIL bought her these finger puppets last year that are RRH, the wolf, grandma, and teh wolf in grandma's clothing and she is CRAZY for the wolf! It's all about the wolf and howling like a wolf. She could care less about RRH so we say that the wolf gets sent to the zoo at the end.

"Wacky Wednesday" drives me nuts. My mom had it at her house but the kids always wanted her to read it to them and it was driving her crazy so she gave it to them to bring home! Thanks mom.

My MIL has a book called Cyril and the Dinner Party which really bugs me. It's about a boy who discovers that he can change people into things and changes all his adult relatives into weird things like a clock, a seal, etc. And he changes his mother into a "terrible smell" which is the part that drives me the craziest!

Also The Berenstein Bears. To write a Bears book, just come up with some shortcoming (whining, eating too much, watching too much TV) and make the cubs and Papa do it. Mama is perfect. The cubs change their ways pretty quickly, Papa always has the hardest time changing. Every single book is like this! (Although I do have to admit I kind of like the Too Much Vacation book because that is exactly how my DH is on vacation!)

It's funny this thread is here. Just last week i decided to banish all the books I hate. I've been hiding them, waiting for a moment to sneak them off to the thrift shop. Today ds was happily playing so I put some in a bag, well ds knew something was up, came over and pulled out Richard Scarry's Mother Goose and made me read it to him. Yuck, there's a rhyme in there about having a wife who cooks and cleans and brings him ale while he sits around.
I have to say since I've put away all the ones I hate reading is so much more fun because I know he's not going to pick out any torture books. The one's I can't stand have pretty much already been mentioned here. Berenstain Bears, Clifford, Rainbow Fish, Curious George.

DS also has a Little Einstein alphabet book with photos of real paintings used to illustrate the letters. Each letter also has a question or two about the painting. "A" is for angel. That's cool...but one of the questions is, "What is different about you and the angel?" Um, the angel is DEAD, how 'bout that? What a stupid question!

I love "Go Dog, Go". It was the first ever book that my ds would sit through and also request, so it's a sentimental favorite. I also like 'Goodnight, Moon". I like that it is nice and short, and that ds can participate in reading it, and I think it is sweet to say goodnight to all the objects in the room and outside. However, Margaret Wise Brown has a companion book to that one called "My World", and it is truly dull.

As far as books I hate: Sesame Street books, Berenstain Bears (especially the annoying "A Book", "B Book", etc. I am not really fond of Dr. Suess, again because they are sooooooo looooooong. One of ds's current favorites is "If I Ran the Zoo", and there are parts which make me uncomfortable because they portray using guns and force to capture animals to take to the zoo. However, ds thinks that all the funny, strange animals with the silly names are totally hilarious, so he requests this book a lot. He loves to play around with words, so Suess is big in his life. I don't like Curious George because they are again so long and dull. But ds loves those too. Oh well. Most of the books that I buy because of their good writing, funny story-lines, and great illustrations lie unchosen on his bookshelf.

Have any of you read "Julius"? It was a fav of mine as a child and I was appalled when I read it to ds one day (The only day I EVER read it). Capturing an animal with guns for the circus and all the animals are DISAPPOINTED not to be chosen and keeping the animals in small cages with bars, not to mention the lovely brown skinned porters and the white guys in pith helmets. Ugh. I was very disturbed.

I also hate the Sesame Street golden books. But I really don't like any book written in dialog balloons. My kids are 4 and 1, if I don't point it out they have no idea who is talking. It makes the books seem weird and nonsensical

Yep, that's the part that lost me. Psycho stalker mommy creeping along in the dead of night to crawl into her son's window. And if that wasn't bad enough, then we've got her death to deal with. I have never had such a violent negative reaction to a children's book.

I got "guess how much I love you" in a baby gift basket and i can't stand it. That one will be going away soon, i hope. Its just too nutty for me.
There's also this book my DS LOVES called "Some things go together", and it is rhymes like "Franks with beans, kings with queens".. and thats the whole book. I cant stand it - i think that one is going in the Goodwill box.
I can't stand the Curious George books, any disney books, the new Pooh stories where C. Robin is all modern and bratty, and any tv-related books.

I also love Goodnight Moon. My son pulls it off the shelf every night before bed.



On the topic of good books,
I love the books Wakeity Wake , Tumble me tumbly, The Pea Pod Babies, and Yum tummy Tickly by Karen Baicker, with pictures by Sam Williams. The rhymes are silly but fun to say, and my toddler loves the different sounds the language makes. Sam Williams does the most beautiful watercolor-and-pencil drawings, and my son loves the drawings of the babies. Simple, but lovely.
