Thread Name: nursery rhymes-Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
I had my 23-yr-old daughter read this thread when she came over to cook me dinner. I had been feeling bad about all the stuff I should have shared with my kids, but she reminded me of all the good stuff I did share with them.

But what I want to know is this: Before I left for Denver, I had an almost-new copy of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good Very Bad Day, with two sequels included. Now I can't find it. Who took it? It's one of my favorites, along with the Homer Price and Winnie-the-Pooh stories, Where the Wild Things Are, and Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go Now? I suppose most of these aren't the traditional classics, but they're the ones I've had the most fun with.

Oh, one other thing: My ex-wife always wanted a copy of a book she had as a kid, called Mister Bear Squash You All Flat. I've never seen the book myself, but there were some copies offered on Bookfinder for $150 a while back. I was wondering if somebody might have a copy of this book and might be willing to transcribe the text for me. I'd love to see it myself, and I'd like to give my ex a copy.
