Craig and Al went to Victor School yesterday and Cold Springs Elementary School in Missoula earlier this week to read to some of the young students. This led to the obvious question, "What are Craig and Al's favorite books to read to children?" Even if you don't have a child to read to, as Craig said, it brings back memories just to see these book covers, so take a look at their picks.

    "Ladybug Girl & Bumblebee Boy"

    "Princess Smartypants"

    By Babette Cole

    Craig said this is a great book for the young girl who isn't the traditional princess-type, as it shows girls an alternative to waiting for prince charming to marry them and give them a happily-ever-after life.
