BarkingMadRun My answer is the tagged book, I know I read it to my kids, and I think I read it to some of the kids I was a nanny for, so probably about 8 years ago? 1mo
mabell So hard to pick one! But the Jolly Postman is up there - I loved seeing the letters. So much detail! Probably perused in the last year 😊 1mo

#StoryBookSunday : This was my all time favorite book to have read to me and to read to my family when I was a little one. I used to delight whenever we turned a page !!! Now it‘s a go to for a baby shower gift because I must spread this to anyone I can!!

ElizaMarie @jb72 it is super super cute! I hope you like it :) But it has to be the old Grover one and not the one with Elmo. Grover for life! Team Grover :) 3mo

Litsy! My mom is so awesome. After my post about this book yesterday, I was lamenting the fact that I no longer own a copy of one of my favorite children‘s books and she bought me this special edition at B&N today. 😍😍 It even has a special pull-out Grover poster. 😭😭

Jess861 Love this book - we bought it for our little guy about a year ago. 3mo
MicheleinPhilly This is the book that my big sister taught me to read with. Last year for my 40th she sent me a copy and I snot cried all over it. 😭 3mo

I re-read this on July 12 & gave it 5 stars. This was one of my favourite books as a small child. I picked it up as a gift for a pregnant friend and could not resist reading it again. I always loved the oddball muppets like Grover & Gonzo. Anyhow it‘s a cute & fun book for kids.

finally this is the original not so scary monster book that generations of children have loved. grover spends the story terrified about the mister at the end of the book, begging the reader not to turn the page. but kids know better- grover himself is the monster.

Discovered that one of my favorite Golden Books was republished as a board book. We got it around Christmas, and have read it at least once a day ever since.

And yeah, a wall didn't work for Grover, either.

I read this to my English classes last week, because in I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, the main character talks about her favorite childhood book. We had a class discussion about our favorite childhood books, and then I read this to them because it was one of my favorites. Continued...

ConfessionofaBookaholic This was my fav growing up ❤️❤️❤️ 1y
CoffeeNBooks So today, one of my students excitedly showed me the book he's reading, where it mentined this book! It referenced "the Sesame Street book where Grover's afraid of the monster at the end." Had I not read it in class, he said he wouldn't have gotten the reference. Now I'm even happier that I took the time to read it to them! #englishteacher 1y

The tagged book is my favorite, and probably the children‘s book @dsfisher loathes the most, but she does an excellent Grover voice, so she really has only herself to blame. 😂😂

When Me and Inner Me are debating 🙂

Do you guys like to skip to the end and read the last page?

I did this for several years but I quitt doing so, because there was no fun knowing the end and then continuing reading. I like being surprised not get the the surprise ruined by knowing what will happen in the end... what about you?

diovival Sometimes I'll peek a few pages ahead. 3y

I do have a few modern favorites, like The Wolves in the Walls, The Watermelon Seed (a favorite at storytime in my library), and The Bear Ate My Sandwich, but I guess this is my sentimental favorite.

Today is the 45th Anniversary of this gem. It is also my wife's 45th birthday, implying that perhaps I am married to Grover.

Also, sorry not sorry for the Spoiler.

merelybookish A classic! 3y

Chassie I read this out loud to my Mom at three years old. Previously she had thought I was memorizing books we read together. She had just bought this for me, and we were sitting down to read it together. I don't remember it at all, but she says I told her, "Mama, I'll read this one to you." Apparently I did, and blew her mind. I guess I've always been a proud book nerd. ? 3y
Valink I read this to my kids daily when they were little. And gifted it to all the kids in our life. The giggles that came from this book were priceless! 3y
DGRachel This was my FAVORITE book as a child. My mother does an amazing Grover voice. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 3y

Pandorazboxx I love reading this to my kiddo as much as I loved reading it as a kid myself. The ridiculousness of it is endearing. 3y
