Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Nancy: which story was your fav in the Childcraft books? I felt lucky to have found used sets when my kids were young enough to enjoy them, and of course, they'd heard them at Grandma's house. Now, I am making a recording of some of them for my year old grandsons and have sent a set to their parents.

I'll never forget how disappointed I was when we bought a modern set in the 70's. It wasn't at all like the old ones and I gave it away, the whole set, except for one volume on dogs.

Some of my favourites included "The Lad Who Went to the North Wind"; Nannette & (the Castle?, a story from Holland); the poem, the Wraggle Taggle Gypsies O!; the Owl & the Pussycat; The Giant Joe Bean; my brother does a wickedly good rendition fo the Town Musicians of Bremen; and we had lullabies as well. My oldest daughter's favourite poem was her grandma reading her the Sugar Plum Tree.
