children’s books you dread

my recent look at my friend Sarah Maizes children’s book led to some comment about how some go on and on. ¬†Beatrice wrote that Harold and his purple crayon need to wrap it up. ¬†In another sign I might be blogged out of original perspectives on motherhood I found this video where I covered this when Vivien was TINY, not even 3 I think.

I Hate This Book

When my daughter Vivien was about a year, she really loved The Chicken Sisters. I had to read it all the time. One day I hid it. It was gone for weeks and I was relieved, but her sitter found it and put it out again. But, like a relationship that has weathered a fight, I fell in love with The Chicken Sisters anew. This is my tale of a grown woman reading rudimentary literature.
