Stories felt as real to me as my everyday world. Even though I knew it was make-believe, wouldn't it be cool for a cat in a red and white striped hat to knock on my door one wet, wet, wet day?
When I grew up, I traveled to my favorite story places with my children.. I loved to see their wide eyes as they thought about possibilities and impossibilities.
When you find a favorite story, try to live in it for a little while. You might find a "happily ever after!"
