large print 3
Friends of ours are having a baby girl in a couple of months time, so I've been thinking about what 'welcome to the world' prezzie I'd like to give her.

Our Dad was very fond of reading us sad stories - 'little tear-jerkers' as he called them. His favourites were Oscar Wilde's stories, 'The Selfish Giant' and The Happy Prince', and just thinking about those stories still brings a tear to my eye. But perhaps the story that resonated most powerfully with me, my brothers and sister, was The Lorax by Dr Seuss.
