Often kids want you to read them the same book over and over again - as a result, there are some, that 10 years later, I can recite from start to finish without looking at the book.
Twenty Four Robbers
Bears in the Night
There may be more, but these are the ones that spring to mind. There were plenty of other books I had to read over and over, but they were too long, or not in rhyme or for some reason, didn't stick in my head.
Can you recite any children's books? If so, which ones?
Green eggs I can do large chunks of, but not from start to finish. I can also recite large chunks of Hop on Pop and Go Dog Go but not in entirety without looking at the book, however I can do Marvin K Mooney off by heart. I can also recite Hairy Maclary too. Forgot about that one. Now any of the other Dodd ones tho.
I cannot recite any children's books by heart, however there are a couple of books that I know really well that I can re-iterate the story in my own words. One of them is "Froggy goes to Hawaii" by Jonathan London. My kids LOVE that book.
Perhaps when I write and publish my own children's book, I will be able to remember it by heart. :)
By the way, I just think my brain cannot handle any extra "baggage" after I became a mother. Things I used to be able to remember on my finger tips escape my mind now. Boohoo to Mumnesia! :)
