Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

This was my children's favorite bedtime story. It immediately came to mind when I saw the new category. (I had to go searching for the book and the accompanying chamber stick. With my wife's good organization skills, found them both pretty quickly!).

    Nice arrangement, Don. If my copy still exists, it's inside a box, inside a crate, on a pallet, in a warehouse, in Madsion, Tennessee. My life is a warehouse. Sigh . . .

    This was me and my big brothers favorite story as children, and now me, 20, and my brother 24 can still quote it by heart, and often read it to my baby brother who is only 1, and my little sister who is 8 (it was also her favorite as a baby) and the copy we have is the same one from when me and my brother were little. :0) Very lovely photo. :0)
