    When was the last time?

    You read a children's book?

    I am convinced that adults who read to children love them as much if not more than the child.
    One of my favorites to read to my children has always been the classic "Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day" book.

    It starts out:

    I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

    From the time we had our first son and until our fourth, when we read that book to them and got to the final line above, we would say in unison "I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day". We didn't plan it that way, it just happened, maybe because it sounds so good.

    Do you have a favorite childhood book or story?

    I read a children's story today, The Tortoise and the Hare. http://childhoodreading.com/?p=3

    Sorry. No children and niece and nephew are too old.

    I was responding in the "Race Thread."

    I reread From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler a few months ago before giving a copy to my daughter. It's one of my favorites.

    Re: When was the last time?

    Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite novel. I re-read the book bimonthly.

    Although I seriously wonder whether it is appropriate as a children book. I find it too perplexing albeit frivolous.
    come now, my child. if we were planning to harm you, do you think
    we'd be lurking here beside the path in the darkest part of the forest?

    I'm currently reading Finn Family Moomintroll.

    I read almost everything in eBook format these days ... but I have made an exception for the Moomintrolls.


    I love the Alice books too; In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are two of the greatest Qabalistic books ever written.

    Re: When was the last time?

    I read at least two of them to my class each week for shared reading. Even in Grade 5, they still enjoy being read to!
    For Veterans Day, I read "The Wall" by Eve Bunting and the book about the story behind the poem "In Flanders Fields," to my class.

    Re: When was the last time?

    I read Three Billy Goats Gruff last night to the bairn. It had some lovely pics in it.

    If you have nephews or nieces who are in nursery and early primary school, then I highly suggest rhyming stories. The authoress Julie Donaldson's and the illustrator Axel Scheffler pair up in many brilliant books like The Gruffalo, and the Acorn Wood stories (has flaps where the kid can lift bits up to reveal things).

    Re: When was the last time?

    When I read the book about Alexander for the first time to my son, Nik, his response cracked me up. I read the entire book to him, closed it and Nik said "He got gum in his hair?". Apparently he never got beyond the first sentence.

    Someone gave us these old children's books (price? 35 cents). One of the books is called BRAVE DANIEL. One page said Daniel was a great jumper. Once Daniel jumped off the roof of a house........it was a dog house. Nik thought that was funny. There was a picture of a dog in the dog house. The dog had a smile on his face. The dogs name was Chips. My sentences are starting to sound like the children's stories. Uff da.

    Re: When was the last time?

    I skipped the children's books phase of my life. I started reading when I was 3, so my parents never really needed to read those kinds of books to me. I pretty much stuck to comic books for the main part, then jumped into young adult fiction (Star Wars Kids Books, Goosebumps), then leaped into adult fiction around 12 or 13.

    I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, but I'm afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently...

    Re: When was the last time?

    We were not read to as children. I read whatever was handy - cereal boxes, newspapers, an encyclopedia -- I think as a result I never developed a desire to read fiction. I listen to it now on my phone but I still don't "read" fiction.

    Weird.
