    Many of us were read to as children, some were not. Whether it was a librarian, a teacher, a parent, a sibling, or a friend, we liked to be read to.

    I can remember my mom reading me a book about Donald Duck and his favorite pizza: Pineapple and Sardines. Mmmmmmm....delicious!?

    Another favorite book when I was in school was "Miss Nelson is Missing." It is about a teacher who is having a rough time with her students, but then, to teach them a lesson, she pretends to be sick and her students are told about a new substitute teacher named Viola Swamp. She is really mean. They begin to miss Miss Nelson and wish that they did not mistreat her. At the end of the book, we find out that Viola Swamp was really Miss Nelson in disguise.

    Hmmm, I liked the 'Harriet the Spy' series, the 'Wayside School' books, and then when I got a little bit older there was a book that scared the crap out of me called 'Wait Til Helen Comes.' I have ALWAYS loved to read!

    I liked that one with the caterpillar that ate all of the food. I also like a book about a popcorn machine that overflowed. And Eye Spy books were fun too. That's all I can remember right now.
    And with that, I'm gone with the shadows...

    I was gonna also say one of my fav books was Miss Nelson is Missing! But also I have a list of fav books or stories such as... "A House for a Mouse", "Flat Stanley", "Sunny with a Chance of Meatballs", "Curious George" and this nursery rhyme book that my mom got me that I've been trying to find but I don't remember the name of it or the author.

    I remember loving "the Monster at the End of the Book," with Grover, and he happened to be the monster. This was when my mom would read me bedtime stories. There was also this other one with this little girl finding a picture of a baby, and wondering who it was and turned out to be her. I also loved that one book about it raining spaghetti and meatballs. Somebody has to know the title of that book.

    That book is called "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs"

    They are making a movie of it. It releases March 09.

    Oh no! I don't know how I feel about that.

    Thanks for letting me know the title, though. I think I'm going to go find it and buy it. If I have kids in the future, I'd like to read it to them.

    The Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs Movie will probably go down just like The Cat in the Hat with Mike Myers.

    It story could be done good with the way technology and special effects are now. I just hope it is not a live action movie, it needs to be CGI.

    Stories made into movies that are CGI are better and more true to the actual concept.



    It has a Sequel: "Pickles to Pittsburgh"

    I read almost the whole Beverly Cleary book series (Beezus and Ramona, Ramona the Brave, etc.)

    I also have fond memories of the Little House series. Our librarian (who just retired after 57 years) made us read them in order - beginning with Little House in the Big Woods.

    Yep. Mirette was way ahead. Loosely based on "Mirette on the High Wire" by Emily Arnold McCully. I started reading "Mirette on the High Wire" as a child because I want to be just like Mirette: becoming a professional male ballet dancer in training.

    I remember reading this Superman storybook from the late 80s all the time as a kid. Don't remember what it was called, but I loved it.

    My mom also used to read me "The Gingerbread Man" every night before I went to sleep. Such a funny story.
