Hey, Dads! What books do / did you love reading to your kids?
When I heard a story on NPR this morning about today's Caldecott Medal announcement, I fondly recalled many happy hours reading books aloud to my kids. Some of our favorites, in no particular order:
One of the greatest joys of having young kids for me was reading aloud to them (yes, with different wacky voices for each character) and traipsing to the local library in search of new treasures. Now that my kids are grown, I envy the fathers and grandfathers (and mothers and grandmothers and sisters and brothers and aunts and uncles) who will read to their little ones tonight.

1. Great choices, all.
The art for Little Nemo is simply spectacular. I've always loved that style.
All of those are/were favorites, although our kids were early readers (can't complain there) so the "reading to" stage is long gone.
Right now they're very partial to Calvin and Hobbes.
