21. My kid loved The Princess Bride when she was five.
She glimpsed a few minutes of it one evening on her way from the backyard to bed and was intrigued. When we told her the movie was based on a book, she wanted us to read it to her. At the time, I thought she'd get bored after a night or two, but we read the entire book to her, and after she'd heard the book, we let her watch the movie.

This had an unintended side effect. Years later, when she was a second grader, she asked us about WWII while we were on a car trip. We starting giving her a Cliff's Notes version. When we got to the part about Germany invading Russia, an indignant, "Hitler started a land war in Asia?" came from the back seat. My husband laughed so hard he nearly had to pull over.

You never know what they're going to remember...
