What a wonderful, wonderful post, Gretchen! You put my own post to shame! So many wonderful books, and so many wonderful memories of your mom. Little Women was one of the first books I downloaded on my Nook -- I just loved reading it when I was younger. I loved reading about how Beth overcame her fears to go and play the piano next door, and how Jo would write in the attic...

I know Jude will cherish time spent reading with you, especially when he's older! Thanks for linking up!

What a wonderful memory! I could easily picture you snuggling with your mama and being absorbed by the story. Your post triggered memories of reading and snuggling with my own children. Thanks!


I have that same book and tender memories. As I sit insulated in a corner of sun at a noisy Starbucks, I am passing the time until 9:30 comes and I go to my first born's class to be the secret reader. This was the perfect post to discover today. Now, if I can keep the weepiness at bay...

Sprite's Keeper

So sweet! Is that the same Little Bear that the Nick JR cartoon is based on? The pictures look a little familiar.

James and the Giant Peach! That was my favorite with my mom. Oh, and the Boxcar children! Jude might like those.

Ella has no time to snuggle & read with me. She will read forever on her own. But she doesn't want to listen to me. Natalie and I could lay in bed all day while I read. We are finishing the Wizard of Oz right now, and then we're moving on to Little House.


Aw! X still asks a million questions, but he does like some of my faves, like Where The Wild Things Are, and Go Dog Go.

I guess I was a bit tomboyish.
