Cool Facts: What Children’s Books do YOU Think Have Sold Over 4,000,000 copies?

As the first print run of Am I Like My Daddy?  will be 1000 copies, the thought of selling 4 million copies is mind-boggling.  However, what fun!  Believe it or not the most recent list I could find was compiled by Publisher’s Weekly at the end of the year 2000, so let’s take all of the Harry Potter books out of the running because even as of that time 4 of the titles were already in the list.  So, from the original publication date to the year 2000, can you guess a children’s book (picture book or chapter book) that made the list?  No cheating!  I will post the link tomorrow.

What’s your guess?

  1. I might guess “Goodnight, Moon” or that little board book “Pat the Bunny,” maybe even “Peter Rabbit.” Something tells me I’m way off, but your intriguing question made me guess.

  2. Green Eggs and Ham, Brown Bear Brown Bear, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Frog and Toad and maybe something by Beverly Cleary or Shel Silverstein.
