It’s my Blogging Wednesday (which snuck up on me since Monday was Fourth of July!) and when mulling over a topic for today I recalled reading an e-mail on a Yahoo loop asking, “What’s Your Favorite Book?” But that’s not what I want to know here…
My mom signed me up for a subscription to a Children’s Book of the Month Club when I was very young, perhaps seven or eight years old. Each month I’d get a package in the mail and had no idea what book I’d find inside. I vividly recall one about living creatures under the sea. The cover was a bluish-green and the title was in bold black print. I still have it somewhere in my library.
I didn’t start reading the Nancy Drew mystery series until I was an adult. I still enjoy reading them and have an incomplete set – the ones with the light-blue cloth jacket. They’re older than I am and it’s hard to find the ones I’m missing. My love of reading was spawned early on and I believe that has something to do with why I still have a soft spot for children’s books.
I don’t think I’ll ever be too old to read a children’s book which is why I wrote this post. I’m gathering a list of books to read and would love to hear what kid’s novels bring back fond memories for other readers.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK THAT YOU READ AS A CHILD?
If you post the title in the comments section below I can add it to my list.
