At least according to a new OnePoll study, on behalf of ThriftBooks, that finds more than half of the 2,000 people surveyed are going back to their childhoods to revisit some of the books they loved as children.

Many look to "Beauty and the Beast," "Harry Potter," and "The Cat in the Hat" among other classic titles for nostalgic feelings.

The researchers also wanted to try to find out which are the best kids' books ever.

The number one book on the list was "The Berenstain Bears" with 31% of the vote. "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein got 30%, tied with "The Tale of Peter Rabbit."

More than half of those polled also say they remember every line from their favorite children's book, which seems hard to believe, but really heartwarming.
