I haven't read an entire book in far too long. Too long to remember, but more importantly, too long to admit. I've liked a slew of different books but I'll mention just one... series... that will forever be in my heart as a favorite book.
the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books
I loved those books. As a child, they spoke to me. I even loved them more than the Amelia Bedelia books. You can be sure my kids will hear Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle stories at bed time throughout their childhood.
