"Young Cat! If you keep
Your eyes open enough,
Oh, the things you will learn!
The most wonderful stuff!"
-I Can Read With My Eyes Shut
The world of reading just excites me. Some of my best memories include becoming lost in a story. There are so many good books - classics and new ones. Thanks for the recommendations thus far.
Izzy is constantly on the go, but if she has her bottle we're more likely to get through nearly an entire book! It helps when I make really embarrassing intonations with each character or sentence.
Here are some of my favorites (that span various ages):
Ramona Quimby books by Beverly Cleary.
The crazy Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. I think we can all relate with poor little Alexander.
Where the Sidewalk Ends: the Poems and Drawings of Shel Silverstein. I really like Shel's website too.
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss.
Sideways Stories From Wayside School by Louis Sachar
These are just some of my favorites that popped in my head. There are plenty more.
