Feature & Follow Friday: Childhood Books

This weeks Question:
What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?

My Answer:  I LOVED books as a kid, thanks to my mother who encouraged me and my sister to read daily. The Book Fair would come along and I alone would cost her an arm and a leg in books. I have so many fond memories of those books so it was difficult to narrow them down to two... Authors, and one book.

1. Dr. Seuss: Who didn't love these books? Surprisingly my favorite was not The Cat in the Hat, but How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

2. Stephen Cosgrove: He wrote some of the most poignant, touching and educational books I've ever read and even now as an adult I still love these books that serve as a way to teach kids about compassion, forgiveness, acceptance and what it really important in life. My favorites have to be Shimmeree, Glitterby Baby, and Morgan Morning. I highly recommend them to adults and kids alike as all Mr. Cosgrove's books have very important lessons to be learned and would make great conversation starters between parents and their children.

3. The Monster at the End of This Book starring Grover from Sesame Street: My mom used to read it in her "Grover" voice and to this day the thought of it makes me smile.

  1. The Grinch was my favorite Dr. Seuss book too! I also loved The Monster at the End of this Book. Old follower.

  2. Lol, it's funny but I've never met another person who loved The Monster at the End of this Book before you. I don't know why though because Sesame Street was all the rage when I was little.


I love hearing from you and will always try to get back to each and every one of you as soon as I can. If you have a blog, leave a link so I can stop by and say "Hello!"
