My favorite parts of any book or movie are those which describe houses... or food. Which is probably why The Wind in the Willows is one of my favorite children's books, or The Lord of the Rings, or Peter Rabbit, or Anne of Green Gables... so many to choose from which offer literary delights to the senses.
I've been known to watch the beginning of The Return of the King just too view the inside of a Hobbit House again (as well as Whose Got Mail for that delightful vintage apartment of Meg Ryan's character).
I'm trying to find other books (they don't have to be kid's books) that have excellent descriptions of warm and cozy rooms or equally delicious descriptions of tea time, dinners, picnics... or food in general.
