1. The greatest gift my parents gave me

was respect for books and a life-long love of reading. I sell vintage and newer used children's books, and I love to see the children's faces light up as they pore over them. It makes me sad to see the ones who don't care about books...they are missing so much.

A new Dr. Seuss is such an unexpected treat.

2. Wonderful work you do!

With 2 little grandsons and a granddaughter on the way I've gone through my archive, incomplete as it is. Lots of stuff in storage, I think, and whenever I find something and show it to my 'girls,' young mothers now, they OOOH and AHHH!!!

I'll order this new book for them asap!

3. These are the memories that last a lifetime.

My granddaughters are 13 and 14 now, but they come to visit they still pull out the books we read when they were so much younger. Some stories just never get old.
