A friend of mine, a graduate student of mathematics, became inadvertantly pregnant soon upon marrying a recently divorced fellow with three teenagers. The child was born, named Jack and soon became a large part of my life as we're old friends, his mother and I, and their family lives only a little more than a block from my home.

Within months of his birth I started taking Jack on walks pretty much every evening in a backpack designed for kids. He's almost two and a half now and we're still doing
Another find in my Keepsies box, and reread it. It is a good mixture of Grimm, Andersen and Aesop stories as well as a few more whose authors I forget, and not a princess in sight! Lots of talking animals, wolves, chickens, goats, and quite a few wee little old ladies.
Some of these stories seem way out of date, but they are classics everyone should read once.
Original tales told in original version. I have this book copyrighted 1944.
Wish I could find a copy of this childhood favorite!
