I think it's time we discuss something fun for a change. The numerous coming out, help me, etc stories were getting old. So since this subject hasn't been brought up since 2008 I figure now is as good a time as any.
So what are/were some of your favorite bedtime stories growing up? For us older folk, do you have a new story that took over one from the past? Please share. To further push this post, I will even go first.

This book reminds me of a time when a child's only agenda for the day was to explore anything and everything. A world of imagination that no adult can even begin to comprehend. And wouldn't you know it, there's even a helpful lesson at the end. I miss those days, this book returns them.
And there's still thirty more pages to go. <3
