Weekend Assignment #82: What was your favorite bedtime story as a child? I grew up with Dr. Seuss, my mom must have got me all the Dr. Seuss books when I was growing up. When I was a child I had a problem that many kids probably face, that was nightmares. After I got this book, I started changing those creatures in my nightmares from monsters that were going to hurt me to monsters that were my friends. This was my favorite book growing up. I also loved "The Velveteen Rabbit" which I think I loved even more as an adult. I loved being read too, and reading.
Extra Credit: As an adult , have you shared that favorite bedtime story with a child? I got Autumn the book "The Velveteen Rabbit", and Eli the leapster edition of "Where the Wild Things Are". The first book I read was "Island of the Blue Dolphins", can't wait to give that book to Autumn soon. I also loved "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", can't wait till that movie comes out in December.“The wild things roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth
and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws
but Max stepped into his private boat and waved goodbye
and sailed back over a year and in and out of weeks and through a day
and into the night of his very own room, where he found his supper waiting for him
and it was still hot.”—Where the Wild Things Are
