Ann, I'm told that when I was still tiny (far too young to remember it myself) my mother used to read me the Just-So Stories over and over again until I knew them by heart, but never tired of them, although she, perhaps, did. On one occasion, she tried skipping a few phrases, but I told her sternly: "You left out 'O Best Beloved'." She didn't try that again.
