They are stories we never forget. The ones with unexpected endings, sharp twists and turns, and filled with a world of wonder and imagination. Remember when you first got asked “Do you like green eggs and ham?” or giggling after being called mommy’s “Little Prince?”
We sure do! Go ahead and get lost in “Charlotte’s Web” while searching for "Madeline" but remember it’s OK to re-read the pages of your book if you don’t understand “Where The Wild Things Are”!
