According to, May 1st is Mother Goose Day. Apparently, the term “Mother Goose” dates back to the 1650’s and refers to stories like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty, as well as the nursery rhymes we know and love, like Little Miss Muffet, Jack & Jill, and Old Mother Hubbard.

I know I read many of these stories and nursery rhymes when I was young and also read them to my kids when they were little.

We’ll generalize it a bit more today with the free-for-all question. Think back to your own childhood or to the books you read to your children.

If you had to choose only one favorite children’s book, which one would it be?
