Fall Bedtime Story: Mr Putter & Tabby Pick the Pears

My two oldest (4 years, and twenty months) have found a new favorite story this week, and we've been reading it non-stop.

The story is Mr. Putter & Tabby Pick the Pears by Cynthia Rylant.

It is a cute story of an old-man, Mr. Putter, who loves Pear Jelly, but due to his cranky knees and legs, can't seem to climb the ladder anymore (like he used to) to pick his pears.

I find the story incredibly cute, my four-year old daughter is old enough to enjoy some of the comedy in the story, and my 20 month year old found a new favorite word "ZING" (a word used as the sound of an apple flung from slingshot Mr. Putter uses to try to get the pears down).

I love when we find new favorite bed time stories - especially ones we all (myself included) can enjoy.

This brings back a lot of childhood memories. Back then, it didn't matter if I had the finest cotton nightwear on. Without a nice story, I wouldn't be able to get to sleep.
