To help deal with the wait…

My favourite book from when I was little was…

  1. My hubby liked Sylvester and the Magic Pebble and I really liked Ferdinand. When I was older I loved The Best Loved Doll. I could go on and on – so many great books for children!

  2. ok, you might not believe this but i LOVED the monster at the end of this book when i was a kid, too. LOVED it. when i opened your site today and saw it… all sorts of memories.

    so, instead of sharing that one, i will share one that theo loves now… appropriate for the weather that we have been having… Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson. (really, any Karma Wilson. she’s fantastic.)

  3. Oh fun!! This is an easy one for me… my favorite book—by far—was “Pretzel” by Margaret & H.A. Rey … more famously known for the Curious George books. I love love loved that book – I have it to this day!

    (Oh – and for those who don’t know… the book is not about the famous food group, but the longest dachshund in the world… named Pretzel)

  4. How fun! My favorite book was “I’ll Love You Forever” and then later, “Little Women” and “Anne of Green Gables”.

    Thank goodness for the people I have met through the blogging world during this adoption! It has really helped me through the wait thus far, and will continue to be a support system I rely on!

    Any day now, your blog will become one that the rest of us ‘waiters’ envy, as you have your little one home! I am so excited for you!


    A favorite of my brother and I was “Harold and the Purple Crayon” by Crockett Johnson. How fun this post is!

  6. I loved Robert Munsch books, especially “David’s Father” since I won that book at a dress-up contest at my local library– my own signed copy!

  7. What a great idea! I have three favorite books. Lady and the Tramp. I love it still! Button Soup – amazing story, I loved this book so much that my nana actually found a copy and bought it for me for my 16th birthday. When my best friend was pregnant, she had a book shower. She asked that everyone bring their favorite kid’s book as gifts. Pretty neat idea. #3 is The Monster at the End of this Book. I just bought this for my best friends baby for Christmas! My Dad use to read this to me in a Grover voice. I have always had a soft spot for Grover!
    Good luck everyone. Thanks Krista for keeping things interesting! Have a great day!

  8. I was a huge fan of Robert Munsch and especial loved “Murmel, Murmel, Murmel” and “David’s Father”…still love Mr. Munsch’s books even now! Can’t wait to share them with Daniel!

  9. Oh fun. I love books. My favorite book when I was a kid was “The Pokey Little Puppy.” It’s one of the first books I bought for my daughter, but she doesn’t care for it. How sad is that?

    I hear you about the wait. I’m not so hot about my wait right now either.

  10. I loved this book too. Since we brought Oliver home in September I have been meaning to get this book. My Dad read this book to me every night. He was totally a Dad of that generation and it was one of the only things he really did with me until I got older. I let him read it to me well past the time when I was to old for the book.
