What's the best book anyone ever gave you as a gift--and why did you love getting it?
In my living room bookshelves, I still have all the picture books my librarian aunt gave me when I was a kid--autographed by the author and often the illustrator, with a special note from my aunt and uncle about why they thought I would love the story. It was one of their traditions to give each of us kids a beautiful book at Christmas. It made us feel very special, and we probably read each of them more than a hundred times!
