    Good! I don't feel so out of date now! :D

    I liked Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates too. :yes:

    When I got a bit older I loved the short series the Borrowers. I liked Misty of Chincoteague, and Stormy Her Foal too. I've always wanted to go to those islands off the outer banks and see the wild horses!

    My grandfather allowed me uncensored access to his library, so as a child I read whatever I pleased. Some of it was well over my head at the time, but it laid the foundation for a lifetime love of books and reading. I'm sure your Tatiana will have that too!

    I hope so Tink!

    We also had open doors at the library in our house, and my father, although he NEVER read to us, would actually give us extra allowance if we retold him weekly what we had read :)

    My Da didn't either, but did set the example of reading for us. :yes: My Grandfather was a great story teller. We preferred that he tell us a story to reading from a book!

    It was essentially the same though, eh? Imparting a love of the word. :yes:

    Although I always found it more intriguing when someone read to me aloud :)

    Do you know that Andrew, at sixteen, still enjoys having me read to him? SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...don't tell anyone though, they'll likely pull his teenage angst card from him :D

    :lol: I'm so glad others have heard about the Grover book.

    Also, I just remembered that I use to love the Berenstain Bears! There are loads of those!

    You know? I looked at that Grover book for Seth for Easter! I ended up not getting that one, but maybe I'll snag it the next time I run across it. :yes:

    The Grover book (The Monster At The End Of This Book) has a follow-up with Grover and Elmo. It's title is something like Another Monster At The End Of This Book.

    We also love
    The Lorax, by Dr. Suess
    I Am Not Going To Get Up Today, by Dr. Suess
    Fox In Socks, by Dr. Suess
    Three Little Pigs (the disney book that came with a tape from when I was little)
    Go Dog Go, by PD Eastman
    Limu (about a blue sea turtle who helps other animals)

    as well as anything involving cars (for DS) or something remotely princess-like (for DD). And anything that has animals, especially farm animals.

    I think this the one that makes me sob like a baby everytime I read it & actually, I can never read it aloud & make it thru the ending.

    I'm impressed with the fact you can read it (out loud) all the way through without breaking down, lol.
