Matilda: Special Edition (1996) Cursed with obtuse parents and a martinet school principal, 6-year-old Matilda Wormwood immerses herself in books. With so much mental stimulation, she acquires telekinetic abilities -- which she unleashes on her family and odious headmistress.
The Little Red Hen - when I was three or four years old, I had begged for someone to read this book to me so many times that I had memorized the whole book. I would "read" it to anyone who would listen - over and over again, until I actually believed that I was reading the book. It was my #1 favorite.
