|The Little Fur Family by Margaret Wise Brown|
Perhaps my favorite book when I was a child was The Little Fur Family by Margaret Wise Brown. Mine had a real rabbit fur cover that could be slipped off and on into my small hands and was oh, so soft and silky. I loved the lilt of the story and heard it so often I had it practically memorized.
Books make the perfect holiday gift. Recently, as I was cleaning out my files I found a list that I made more than twenty years ago of some of my favorite children's books. While I have read many good books since then, these titles remain among my all-time favorites. Perhaps they will inspire a holiday gift for a child you know.
