Favorite Childhood Story

What was your favorite story to hear or read as a child? Was it a book or a story someone told you?

My favorite was a book about three messy pigs. They filled their rooms with mud and toys and kept the rooms as messy as possible and never wanted to clean because they felt the room was so unwelcoming and unpleasant anyway, so why clean. One day, one of the pigs lost something and had to clean an are of the room to find it and he discovered that the wall was a pretty shade of blue so him and the others continued to clean. By the end they had all of their favorite things they thought they lost in a lovely little room.

I love it!

Hi Jenna,

I love this question. I remember a few stories that I loved but I can't remember their names. There was one of a girl that takes a boat ride to an island with her dad and imagines that she is in a far off time seeing dinosaurs and all sorts of things. My dad also made up a whole series of stories, the main characters being two squirrels named Sammy and Barney. I think I still have a tape somewhere of him telling them!

I just started a new group called Giving Context to our Conversations. I think this question would be great for it. Would you repost it in this new group?

Great question! I loved the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. It is still one of my favorites stories to this day.
