30 Day Book Challenge - Day 5

Day 05 – A book that makes you happy

I was introduced to Sandra Boyton by friends of mine.  They had Philadelphia Chickens and told me that I needed to hear it.  I fell in love with the CD and anything by Sandra Boyton.  I introduced many people to the wonders of Philadelphia Chickens and Sandra Boyton, including my heart-sister, Barb.

Fast forward to 2006, right after I had Teddy.  A package arrived in the mail from Barb and, among the items she'd sent was the board book for Snuggle Puppy.  And it became one of my favorite books to read to Teddy.  Because I didn't read it to him.  I sang it to him.  And now Teddy and I sing it to Pete.  Sharing this book with my family always makes me happy.  I'm hoping to keep it in good enough condition to pass it along to the boys when they have families of their own.
