With apron strings that long, you think he actually got married? No way, no how, who'd have him?
I think it's perfectly OK to acknowledge that there are certain books that as adults
we hate, even if our kids love them. But I have to agree - lighten up folks!
Personally, I love the Pokey Little Puppy (loved it as a child), the Boyton books (I love the illustrations - and even the Rhinocerous Tap CD is meant to be tongue in cheek folks!!). Boynton's Pajama Time is worth it's weight in gold for how much easier it made getting pajamas on for a while.
Oh, but I forgot to add my ALL TIME LEAST FAVORITE BOOK: ONCE UPON A POTTY. It's the stupidist book alive. And dd was in love with it. When my folks were visiting, she brought it to my dad to read -- he had no idea what he was getting into. You should have seen the look on his face when he got to "and he went wee-wee and poo-poo..."
(honestly such stupid words for bodily functions!)
