I‘m not kidding when I say, I love this book. Yes, there are much more “important” books, like Frankl‘s Man‘s Search for Meaning…but if I had to choose just one title, I‘m going with the lovable, furry old G! This book still cracks me up and I love trying to imitate Grover, which I do very poorly…I did not appreciate the version where they added Elmo to the mix. If I were ever okay with 🔥 books, which I‘m not, that would be the one! 😜

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Favorites don't have to be profound. This is one of the few books I read as a kid that I actually remember reading. I recently bought a copy to share with my niece when I see her. 4d
Addison_Reads Great choice! I've bought and read this book for so many kids over the years. I absolutely love it and just seeing it on my shelves makes me smile at all the memories. 4d

Nutmegnc I‘ve read that book a hundred times. I love it too!!! 3d
bthegood PBS has a game of this to help with fine motor skills - my grandson (two) loves it - and I love this story too - Classic Sesame Street Characters (Grover, Ernie and Bert) are fantastic!! thx for sharing this 🙂 (edited) 3d
JoeMo @Addison_Reads @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Bookwormjillk @Purpleness @Smrloomis @Ann_Reads @Graywacke @Nutmegnc @bthegood it‘s so cool to learn that this book connected with a bunch of others from when they were young or by reading it to their own kids/relatives….and it even earned a stack add! 😂 I‘m definitely old enough to feel the pull of nostalgia. At the same time, I love introducing kids and young peeps to stuff that loved when I was… (edited) 2d
JoeMo Their age and seeing how they respond. Unfortunately, some early Muppets and Jim Henson specials (like Emmet Otter‘s Jug-Band Christmas) are slow and outdated to kids nowadays! 😂🤗 2d

I know it's a children's story (or is it really?) but I just had to pick this one for the #LetterH. This is one of my favorite holiday classics, in book and 1966 animated movie format. 💗💗💗

Honorable Mention:
Harry Potter Series (really a tie for my first choice)
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

One cannot listen to this without recalling Saving Mr Banks and PL Travers‘ reaction to the Disneyfied film. I do love both but they are so very different.
This is a far less saccharine version and it is quite difficult to see why the children loved Mary Poppins so much. Beatrix could not work it out - she continued to wait for her to become nicer.
