What was your favorite childhood book(s)?
Hello readers, I know many of us don’t get to read like we used to. For some avid readers, you may remember the very first book you ever read or was read to you. Even though I used to go through 2-3 books a week years ago, I can’t pinpoint the first story I fell in love with. But, I can tell you the stories that fascinated me as a girl. From my earliest memory-Bible stories were read to my brothers and I as children. Each one of us had our own children’s bible.
Jonah and the Whale
Sampson and Delilah
Daniel in the Lion’s Den (was my brother Daniel’s favorite, if I remember correctly) J
Charlotte’s Web-was read to me in the 2nd grade, I still can remember sitting in front of the reader taking the whole story in. I joked when I got older that Charlotte is the ONLY spider I’ve ever liked.
The Golden Books-Didn’t we all love those? Are they still around?
Where the Wild Things Are-Maurice Sendak-I remember this from Kindergarten. It scared me and fascinated me at the same time.
Little Monsters Bedtime book-Mercer Mayer
The Tale of Peter Rabbit-Beatrice Potter-my brothers and I loved this story and even had a rabbit and named him Peter.
Snow White and Rose Red-Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm
Hansel and Gretel-Brother’s Grimm
So now, it’s your turn. What were your favorite children’s stories?
