Clara’s Favourite Bedtime Book (For the Moment)

26 June 2013 | 0 Comments


Clara, who is now 2 years and 3 months old, LOVES the book Harold and the Purple Crayon.  She insists that we read it to her every night, right before falling asleep.  I think it’s because Harold goes to bed and “drops off to sleep” at the end of the book, so it’s perfect for bedtime.  Ian and I love the sweet story, and the delightfully simple illustrations (from 1955!) by Crockett Johnson.

[ps – did you know there’s an animated series for Harold and the Purple Crayon?  It’s on Netflix, and it’s narrated by Sharon Stone, which is kind of creepy]

[pps – after writing this blog post, some of my pals at Bunch asked to to elaborate further and share on their site. Check it out!]
