When we were little, my dad was usually the one who read stories to us. It was our thing. Sure, mom took care of us all day and made sure we were clean, well-fed and healthy--but dad read to us.

He would do voices, too. My dad had an entire repertoire of voices from
Elmer Fudd to Donald Duck to Wile E. Coyote (he did the whistling sound
he makes when he falls off a cliff--it was awesome!). Out of all the
voices he did, though, his best was Grover.

I loved it when my dad read the Monster at the End of the Book.
It was my favorite. And even though I know the monster was just (spoiler
alert!) lovable ol' Grover, I could ask for it every night.

Did you have a favorite book from when you were a kid? What was it?

Oh my god, I hated that book! Even though I knew Grover was the monster at the end, I always felt so awful and guilty because he was so scared and begging you not to turn the pages. I still feel guilty when I think about it!

Aww. :) My grandma used to say she thought I had this little evil streak when I was a little girl. I was the sweetest child, but some moments she wondered...
