Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Bookwise, it was the Green Forest series (Blacky the Crow, Bobby the Coon, etc.) Treasure Island, and Watership Down; poetry-wise, Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses; movie-wise, the Muppet movies; and song-wise, The Battle of New Orleans, Purple People Eater, (sung with tremulous voice and wide eyes) and Oh Susanna. (Joined into joyfully, on the chorus, by my baby, Susanna)
