There were some bedtime stories we read to our kids hundreds of times. So many times, in fact, that we would often zone out in the middle and forget to turn the pages while reciting the stories by heart. Alexander and the Horrible….(you know the rest), the bear and the strawberry, the moose and the cookie, Mr. Pine’s Mixed Up Signs, the Happy Man in the Dumpster, Goodnight Moon, Pat the Bunny, Runaway Bunny, etc, etc, etc…
