My mom recently cleaned out the house and found a bunch of books from when we were little. Of course she gave them all to me. They certainly bring back memories of reading them over and over and over again. 30 years later and I still remember these stories. The books themselves may be a little worse for wear but the stories are still wonderful.

Very funny progressive story.

Always cover your mouth when you yawn ... otherwise, you never know what you might swallow.
