a Grandpa & "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" moment

Boy & Baby Girl have read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" many times, but Grandpa hadn't. They liked knowing what he didn't, but he also kept them in suspense with his special method of adding to and elaborating on the story. Before it was popular, my dad read aloud to us. I especially remember him reading Peter Pan and the Little House books to us as children. I think my mother and father's own love of reading and their insistence that we read a lot, controlled our television viewing, and visited the beloved library helped us all become book lovers.
