1. Why does ASS keep popping up everywhere? Anyway, my children loved Goodnight Moon. I don’t understand the appeal, but they couldn’t get enough. My son loved Are You My Mother by Dr. Seuss. My favorite childhood book of all time was Sneeches by Dr. Seuss. I even searched the internet to find a copy for my children. It’s about star belly sneeches and plain belly sneeches and which are better. It teaches a valuable lesson about how even though we may look different no group of sneeches (people) are better than another group. Dr. Seuss said it much better. (And he had a star off and star on machine!!!)

  2. Love it that your boys like to be read to. Mine did until they reached that horrible age of around ten. Then it was all I can do it myself. Enjoy those days. I rememberlearning to read with my grandfather and I can still hear the first words I can remember him reading “Go and catch a falling star. I have loved John Donne from that day. Now I read to my grandchildren, except when they read to me.

      Janet, I can still remember my grandfather reading me a stack of books, slowly, with no rush to go anywhere else. One of my favorite all time memories. I love your story – so very special.

  3. Great post! My son loves the book Runaway Bunny and also I Love You Through and Through. Unfortunately he’s still at the age (18 months) where he rips books that have paper pages, so I can’t show him books that aren’t board books, since he loves turning pages, lol

      I remember those days! Hard cover and bath books were all that were safe. But they graduate fast. I never read I Love You Through and Through – thanks for the tip!

  4. So happy they’re readers! Bodes well for the future!

    Good Night, Moon features in my paranormal WIP. If it ever gets published, I’ll probably have to take it out. But it’s a kind of poignant scene right now so I really don’t want to.

  5. Brilliant. Yeah. That’s the ticket. Brilliant.

    I LOVE Go Dog Go. My favorite baby shower gifts are giving books since most people don’t think of it and while it’s imporant to have clothing, ideally it’ll help foster reading.

    My children loved Milk and Cookies and I can still recite whole sections of Toad on the Road. My kids never cared much for Dr. Seus but they endured many readings of the doc because I love him! The book my kids always begged me not to read (and I would anyway) is I’ll Love You Forever. I still can’t get more than two pages into that one before I start blubbering like a giant cry baby.
