I was reading to Pumpkin Pie before bed last night and he picked out The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd. This is a classic book that has been around forever. It was first published in 1942 and has never been out of print. Before I read it to him, I checked the publishing date because I was curious just how old it was.
Me: Wow, Pumpkin Pie, this book was written before Nan (my mother) was born!
Pumpkin Pie (completely serious): Really? Was that before the dinosaurs?
Me: Um… no.
Pumpkin Pie: Oh, that’s right! People weren’t around at the same time as dinosaurs.
Me: You got it, buddy.
