You know? I used to really like the Ugly Duckling too. Is that story too old for your Tatiana?
I love it!!!
We actually have it in Spanish... we also have all the works by Hans Christian aNderson and by the Grimm Brothers... but again, in Spanish
Good! I don't feel so out of date now!
I liked Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates too.
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. 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.
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
Heeheeheehee! My 13 year old is the same we all still lay in our bed and read family books together. Well my DH reads and we listen. lol We also have the local libarary at the top of our street which is handy 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.
It's so cute Tink! Well worth it.
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.

Great books - all 3 of mine have loved them. they have been read to them over and over again till we know the words of by heart
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.
Me too I read it at our Mother's Day Tea this year and there wasn't a dry eye in the room!
I'm impressed with the fact you can read it (out loud) all the way through without breaking down, lol.
I cannot even speak about I'll Love You Forever without getting all choked up. I tried the other day
My children both loved

Postman Books - like a nursery rhyme book!
