The Pokey Puppy published by Little Golden Books and so many of the I Can Read books, such as Danny and the Dinosaur or Little Bear, were a few of my top favorites. And I’ll never forget the annual reading of The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore. I still have my original copies of all these books, and during reading group time I have even shown my first graders my copy of Danny and the Dinosaur. It has my name handwritten in crayon on the inside cover. Snuggling up with my mom and a good book helped me learn to enjoy reading and all the adventures that books can take you on in your lifetime.
