We took a new step in our house last night at bedtime. Instead of our usual picture books, my son and I curled up with my childhood copy of Stuart Little and I read the first two chapters to him.
I’m excited. This has opened a whole new realm of bedtime story possibilities. I have a few other childhood favorites on my bookshelf, but when I added the book to Goodreads, it made several suggestions that jarred my memory – The Mouse and the Motorcycle, The Cricket in Times Square, The Boxcar Children, James and the Giant Peach, etc.
What were some of your favorite chapter books growing up?
