My first memory of reading as a young child is Dr. Seuss. I remember having an entire shelf filled with his books. The books are so imaginative and fun. One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish was one of my favourites. I was extremely shy as a child, but this book broke that barrier as I would sit with relatives for hours when they were reading that book. I still have some of those books that I read to my kids and I will keep for my grandkids !!
