What are your favorite books to read to children? This week I rediscovered a bunch of Little Miss and Mr. books. My son Matt and my daughter Meg read these with me countless times. Do you know these charming little tales?
Little Miss Shy lives alongside Mr. Nervous, and Little Miss Neat puts up with Mr. Messy, and Mr. Chatterbox chatters away not caring that snooty Little Miss Splendid pays no attention to him. Of course, in real life one trait doesn’t define us. But I figure these stories helped my children to think about how different people are–and how delightful every person can be. And that we can all enjoy life together.
In a couple of weeks I’m going to a land far away (in the spirit of children’s books) (actually it’s the land of Michigan) to visit my son’s family. I’m going to pack some Little Miss and Mr. books for my four grandkids.
How about you? Do you have a favorite children’s book?
