What is your favorite book to read to your child(ren)? Do you read straight through, make up your own stories or talk in funny voices?

I've been reading Goodnight Moon to Kimber every night for 13 years. Even when she is visiting her dad. She calls and I read it to her.

Obviously she can read it herself and it's way to young for her.. but she still demands that I read it to her when I tuck her in.

Straight through and no funny voices anymore.

"Are You My Mother" by PD Eastman, my daughter loved that one. And yes, I would totally use voices, stories just aren't complete without them, lol!

And with Zach it's "Pizza Pat" by Rita Golden Gelman. It's kind of like "The House that Jack Built" but all about pizza.

My daughter has this book that I absolutely LOVE called "On The Night You Were Born". It is beautiful and it makes me tear up, even thinking about it. I have a hard time making it through the book without crying. It is so beautiful and sweet.

I also really like Frog and Toad books and The Pigeon books by Mo Willem. The Pigeon books are HI-LAR-IOUS.

"Go Dog Go" by Eastman is one of my favorite books ever. Aidan doesn't like to sit still for ready much though. But, I def do voices.

There's a Wocket in my Pocket. Also those damn Sandra Boynton books are kind of addictive.

I didn't think to add mine. Even before Merrick was born I read "Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch. I've never made it through without crying.
Edenladykutenay on September 26th, 2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
Munsch in general is the SHIT, man. He taught my Sunday School when I was little! True fact!

We aren't allowed to read I Love You Forever to Izzy though, because M read it at his mom's funeral, and it would just be too sad.

Can I learn some new random fact about you every day? :)
Edenladykutenay on September 26th, 2008 03:12 pm (UTC)
YES!

No seriously I have known the coolest semi-obscure famous people in my life.

Actually Joey Comeau and Bob Munsch are pretty much it but that's not bad.

I used to be buddies with Anthony Perkins when I was a kid. Trufax. Every year in Cape Cod he'd sit on the beach next to us and I decided he "needed a friend." That's about all I've got. :)

THAT is cool.

He was a really quiet, nice man. I was like 6 - 10 and had NO clue what "Psycho" was but it made me sad when I found out he'd died.

I have a ton of touch and feel books we read together.
I don't really have a favorite.

I remember my mom reading the 'I'll love you forever' book to my sister and I. I love that book.
