A walk through my childhood

Recently I started looking for children's music and books on tape from the Christian bookstore for my kids.  It seemed like it shouldn't be too difficult...Growing up my parents owned a Christian needless to say...I was quite blessed with the latest Christian material.  I wasn't the greatest reader...but I LOVED music and I listened to dozens of children's books on tape.  Call me biased, but there is no bookstore as good as my parent''s versions just don't quite measure up.  Frustrated I searched the internet for some of the titles that I remembered from my childhood...and couldn't find anything.  So, I started digging through my old stuff that my parent's packed up for me when they moved.  I found boxes of the tapes that I used to listen to!  I searched online and ended up finding a converter for cassette tapes.  So, for the past few days I've been listening to all of my tapes as I convert them to MP3's.  Wow...they bring back so many memories.  I used to have some sleep trouble...and these gems really helped me out.  I'm hoping that my kids will be able to enjoy them as much as I did.  

What helped you fall asleep as a kid?  What kinds of music did you listen to?
