Bas Bleu http://www.basbleu.com has some newly reprinted childrens books.
Jenny Goes to Sea Written and illustrated by Esther Averill
Jenny's Birthday Book Written and illustrated by Esther Averill
Jenny and the Cat Club Written and illustrated by Esther Averill
One book I'd like to see reprinted is CS Forester's Poo-Poo and the Dragons. I found a few copies available on abebooks or elsewhere but out of my price range!
Other favorites from childhood about WWII -- When the Siren Wailed by Noel Streatfield, The Machine Gunners and The Silver Sword by Ian Seraillier.

I'd like to see Searching for Shona too.
My favorite books that are currently out of print are White in the Moon by Gretchen Sprague, and Thursday's Children by Rumer Godden. I read White in the Moon over and over in high school, and was amazed when I looked on the used books sites and saw it was out of print and hugely expensive (I got a cheap copy on ebay).
I haven't used this service, but I definitely will at some point. It sounds great!
I have the copy of Little Black Sambo I had as a child, it is also online at http://www.sterlingtimes.co.uk/sambo.htm along with her other books.
According to the Recommend Site Improvements Group, your book covers in your library culled from Amazon, and other sources may disappear in time, as the sites discontinue books. Help the many Thingamabrarians who are 'saving' book covers by scanning or taking a picture of your book covers and uploading them to LT. Many books have user contributed covers, you may wish to switch to these covers now.
Very slightly off the main topic of this thread, I'd like to celebrate the return to print in a new, revised edition of The Fiction Editor, the Novel, and the Novelist by Thomas McCormack, past leader of St. Martin's Press. It's the hadns-down best book I've ever encountered at teaching, so far as it can be taught, the art of editing a novel.

It's been out of print for about twenty years. Used copies are all collector's copies and cost hundreds of dollars. My family copy has purple crayon scribbled on every page, and the cover was torn years ago and now lost.
I see at least one other person is working to bring this back into print:
The Ape, The Idiot and Other People, by W. C. Morrow
Come over to My House, by Theo Le Sieg (T. Geisel or "Dr. Seuss")
Hanns Heinz Ewers: The Sorcerer's Apprentice; Alraune; Vampire
Hans Henny Jahnn: The Ship (and translate his other stuff, please!)
Julian Gracq: The Dark Stranger
(a new translation and proofreading to clean up all the typos!)
But my personal choice is Masques by Patricia Briggs. Everything _else_ she wrote has been reissued...wahhh! Her breakthrough book was her fourth, and two of the preceding three have come out, but no sign of Masques (her first). I like her early stuff a lot better than her current series.
The Little Fuzzy books by H. Beam Piper go in and out of print as well. Great introductory non-hard science fiction.
Little Fuzzy is currently in print too, although the sequels are harder to find...
Suggestion for a reprint,
Plato's Mathematical Imagination
by Robert S. Brumbaugh
