I LOVE "Free to Be You and Me". My parents did not "raise me" on it, but I did "grow up" on it!
I do not remember who first showed me the book but, by high school, it was one of my "Bibles." I knew almost all the stories and lyrics by heart.
In college, a good friend gave me her well worn copy of the book. I treasure it to this day.
I made my husband read the book before we got married!! (He did not love it like I did, but I married him anyway.)
Of course, I read the stories and sang the songs to my kids. I still do, when they let me.
Check out this great site with all the words to Free to Be You and Me. (warning: you might start singing out loud....)
I wonder, how many of you love it like I do? (please leave a comment if you do!)
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
