Every other Thursday (errrr Friday this week) here at the Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.
What was your favorite bedtime story to have read to you when you were a little kid?
Julia says: I had a ton of favorite bed time stories that I would get read to me. Digger Dan, The Little Engine that Could, a book about where milk comes from. But the one that I think annoyed my parents the most was Green Eggs and Ham. I memorized it after a while, so no corners could be cut! Dr Seuss was my favorite.
Tahleen says: I honestly don't remember very well, but I do remember a book we had called Which One Would You Choose? by Edith Kunhardt that we read over and over. Basically, a girl and a boy go through their day and make choices. We as readers got to make choices too. We'd switch it up each time we read it.
Jamie says: I had this Precious Moments picture bible thing and I was OBSESSED with it as a child and made my parents and babysitters read it to me every night. I only wish I would have kept it when I moved in 7th grade because I would have loved to pass that on to Genevieve.
Paula says: I don't have a particular book that stands out. Some of my favorite childhood memories are that my mom and I read together every night for an hour until I was in 7th grade. We read lots of fantasty series. Harry Potter, So You Want to be a Wizard, something that was all about dragons... And usually it was us reading together for awhile... her falling asleep... me finishing the chapter and giving her a summary the next night.
What about you guys? What were your favorite bedtime stories as a kid?
