    My favorite by Seuss is "The Sleep Book." I've never known a kid who could get to the end without falling asleep.

    it's a new idea for me. i'm reading Art of Coppersmithing by John Fuller. a master coppersmith who wrote the book in 1901.

    LOL. I just bought Biochemistry For Dummies from my junk store for only 6 bucks! I'm on chapter 2, and I'm pretty much praying for lots of pictures too.

    Yeah -- one my kids (and their kids) liked was "Marvin K. Mooney -- Will You Please Go -- NOW"
    I recalled it often myself, when I heard Egyptian News - "Hosni Mubarak, will you please go NOW!"
    Then - "The time had come, so Hosni went."

    And yet again, the whole thing - for Mohamed Morsi. :smile:

    And now Egypt's regime is shaping up to be about the same. What a shame.

    Indeed. We Canadians like to help. I'd gladly send them Stephen Harper -- or maybe Justin Trudeau, if it would make Egyptians happy.
    It probably wouldn't, but at least those guys don't kill protesters... :sad:

    I have a few children's books that I love- the entire Little House series is my favorite by a mile, and the Harry Potter books are also great. I love love love Very Hungry Caterpillar, Strega Nona (which I read in a killer Italian accent), and Ten Little Dinosaurs (which I read as a rap, complete with my own ridiculous beat box).

    The Cat in the Hat works great as old skool rap.

    That is all.
