Still on my Mind is a meme created by YA-Aholic to feature a book that you read months or even YEARS ago that was so good (or so scary/unique/funny..etc) that it is 'Still on my (your) Mind!'

This week the book that is still on my mind is...

Photobucket
Goodreads Synopsis:

"Many, many adults name this book as their favorite Little Golden Book. Generations of kids have interacted with lovable, furry old Grover as he begs the reader not to turn the page—for fear of a monster at the end of the book. “Oh, I am so embarrassed,” he says on the last page . . . for, of course, the monster is Grover himself! This all-time favorite is now available as a Big Little Golden Book—perfect for lap-time reading."

Why this is still on my mind?

So... I know this is a little funny. But I  LOVE this book! I have the greatest memories of sitting on my grandfather's lap while he read it to me in 'Grover's voice,' the suspense he created before turning each page is part of the reason that I love books so much today. I just can't wait to find out what happens next! I hope that all parents and grandparents share these types of experiences because this one means the world to me.

What's still on your mind?!
