In honor of all the Moms out there, and passing of Maurice Sendak, let’s skip the story this week. Instead, what stories did your mom tell you or read to you? Is there a book that stands out in your memory? Is there a story you really enjoy telling or reading to your kids? Let’s feel the love for kiddie lit and share our favorites.

My contribution: My favorite story to read to kids is Dr. Suess’s All the Places You’ll Go – it’s a great story for kids of any age. As far as what my favorite story from childhood, I really can’t name just one. Some of my favorites were actually books that had belonged to my Mom as a little girl. There were Little Golden Books and A Child’s Book of Poems that lived at my Grandmother’s house after being left behind by one of my older cousins.

What about you? What are some of your favorite childhood stories?
