As a child it was my Mom who who read to me many bedtime stories, except for Christmas eve when my Dad would read us "The Night before Christmas", and every so often, my Dad would read from this book! His favorite was "The Lamplighter" The book had beautiful illustrations and I can still hear my Dad saying with great voice inflection "O Leerie I'll go round at night and light the lamps with you". Some other favs of mine in this book: The Swing,The Wind, My Bed is a Boat, My Shadow, The Land of Counterpane. I now buy this book for all family and friends awaiting the birth of a baby. As a new 1st time Gr'ma I bought a beautiful edition of this book with gorgeous illustrations for my fabulous grandson Oliver! (born July 13,2011!).
