When I was a small child, I taught myself to read from one of Russell's Read-Aloud books and a dinosaur encyclopedia.

My mom read this to me. My favorite stories were Pandora's Box, The Emperor's New Clothes, MacBeth, Dick Wittington and His Cat, Little Women, To Build a Fire, and Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp.
