Throughout all the baby showers, I asked for children's books as gifts. I really wanted books more than anything. I think I was raised mostly on Little Golden Books and Sesame Street books. My cousin and his wife gave us The Giving Tree. Surprisingly, I've never read this before. It's sad. Or at least it makes me sad.
My mother-in-law gave us The Runaway Bunny, which I had also never read as a child. I just read this one for the first time and it's also sad.
