As I may have mentioned, I think reading is one of the most important things you can do with your kids. For me, being read to as a kid took the place of a college education. Seriously, I graduated high school with a GPA of 2.3. But don’t worry, I made up for it by not joining a single extra curricular activity. So, despite having carte blanche to any community college in the greater Springfield, Mass area, I still chose to forge on ahead to Los Angeles and skip over what may have ended up being the best two years of my life.
I would like to think that my kids will go to school, but just in case, I make sure they never miss a night of bedtime stories. Even if I’m reeeeally tired. I know. I’m pretty great.
And since I have to read them, I also need to enjoy them. I recently gave you my list of least favorite books, so here now are my favorite books (that I’ve discovered thus far). I’d love to hear yours! I haven’t listed much past the seven-year-old range so stayed tuned for another list which will include Charlotte’s Web and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (which for some unknown reason always makes me think of the restaurant Fuddruckers -why is that?)
