    I don't remember ever having books read to me as a child. I think my parents were too exhausted by the time I came around. However, I loved to read to my boys. We loved...
    Oh the places you will go
    One Fish, Two fish
    The Giving Tree
    Are you my Mother?
    Pat the Bunny

    I forgot about The Giving Tree. That book always made me so sad but I loved Shel Silverstein.

    I liked all of the Judy Blume books. Superfudge was my favorite. People still refer to me as Superfudge. I am not sure why.
