When I was a child, my parents and grandparents read me bedtime stories.
My favorite was “Goodnight Moon,” the story where the reader says goodnight to bears, chairs, kittens, mitten, socks, a house, a mouse, the stars, air and noises everywhere.
I loved the book. My copy was extremely tattered and torn from repeated use. I believe the book was the start of my love of reading.
A few years ago, I bought a brand new copy and it’s on display in my home office.
