For some reason most of my initial childhood memories of reading involve chapter books. Yet, I was read to from a very young age, and had many picture books that I spent hours "reading" or having read to me. One classic book that my grandmother often read to me was The Poky Little Puppy. Both my sister and I enjoyed this story - she perhaps more than me.
My own children have had this book read to them, but I'm not sure they even remember it all that well if I would ask them.
As I am recalling books from my own childhood, I am curious as to what my kids will come up with. We have a lot more books in our home than I did as a child and therefore more options for reading. We don't read and re-read a ton, unlike my family when I was growing up. I am sure the constant re-readings have led me to now, as an adult, be able to recall certain stories with great accuracy.
The Poky Little Puppy still makes my list of classic children's books, a story I think every child should know.
Are there certain books that you had read and re-read to you in your childhood? What are some classic childrens books you think every child should hear?
