My parents read these books to me when I was young. I loved them. I believe they were both my dad's when he was a kid. He's now on a hunt for both of them for me, although, the first 2 copies he finds are slated for residence at Grandpa's house, but after that, I'll get the next 2. I can't wait. My next order of business is to collect some of John's favorite childhood titles. I'm not sure what those might be, although I'm sure I've heard before, but I'm sure Bob & Sharon can shed some light on this issue for me. What are your favorite children's books?
