Book Challenge Day 2 : Wind in the Willows

So today is the second day of me attending the tumblr 30 Day Book Challenge. And I already don't know what book to answer the question with...
Today's question, which is actually more a prompt than a question, is:

A Book that you read more than 3 times:

After much thinking and consideration I'm pretty sure that I read The Wind in the Willows more than 3 times. I just love this story. It is really inspirationals and not just an average children story.
What you haven't read it? Shame on you! It is definitely a Must-read-before-you-die-book. And it can actually tell you something about live. Yeah, I know it is about a mouse and a mole, but those two really no something about being human.

The story behind this book is really beautiful, too, since the mole and the mouse were the protagonists of the stories the author Kenneth Grahame told his little children.

Meet little Mole, willful Ratty, Badger the perennial bachelor, and petulant Toad. In the almost one hundred years since their first appearance in 1908, they've become emblematic archetypes of eccentricity, folly, and friendship. And their misadventures-in gypsy caravans, stolen sports cars, and their Wild Wood-continue to capture readers' imaginations and warm their hearts long after they grow up. Begun as a series of letters from Kenneth Grahame to his son, The Wind in the Willows is a timeless tale of animal cunning and human camaraderie. This Penguin Classics edition features an appendix of the letters in which Grahame first related the exploits of Toad.

You can find a full list of the questions and my answers here.
