Now that you have logged considerable parenting and parent/child reading time, what is your take on Caldecott award winners? Of course, they are beautiful, but I’m interested in how they rank in terms of kids enjoyment compared to some of the good (maybe less beautiful) rhyming books you mention.

You gave me that when I was pregnant with Lilly and I couldn’t wait to read it to her. She acts out the whole thing. I’m going to get the other books on your list now, too.

It’s probably time to introduce Oscar to the lovely volume. Thanks for the reminder.

Fri, 14 Jul 2006 11:45:00 +0000 http://www.gabrielleblair.com//?p=3007#comment-209457 Anytime we are doing the girls’ hair in the morning or gathering items for a trip and someone says anything about a comb and a brush, we have a chorus of “and a bowl full of mush” from one of our all-time favs, Goodnight Moon.

One of my happiest memories is taking Ike downtown to see Mike Mulligan excavate a big hole. He knew it wasn’t Mike but played along and helped me yell at him to remember to leave a way out.
