Thanks so much for the visit and comment. I loved reading when I was little - and so I have always read to my own kids.

This is an excellent post! Great shots of the books. As a former teacher and mother of four, I've always loved children's books. We had lots of reading time at home and in the classroom. Thanks for sharing!

This post was so endearing! I love Frog and Toad. Thank you for the nice memories! And the great reminder of wonderful literature. I am going to check some of these out of the library to read to Kaish!
