Topic: Kids and Books. What were your favorite books as a kid? Do you still read children’s books? If you would give a book to your younger self, what would it be?
Unfortunately I didn't grow up in a family that was into book reading so I didn't have much motivation for reading as a kid. Hence, I don't have a favorite book as a kid. I did have an episode of a reading run during a short period in elementary school but I don't recall what I read (except one ..that's another story though) let alone having a favorite. From then on my reading experience was sporadic ..mainly just school assigned readings. It wasn't until 2010 did the reading bug bite me. I have since been a prolific reader. Anyway, now having young kids of my own I try to provide an environment that supports the love for book reading so, definitely, I still read children's books.
Below are a few of our favorites (series installments as well) and I'm having a rough time narrowing one to give to my younger self. But Corduroy by Don Freeman has a special place in my heart because it was the first book I read to my first born that grabbed me so if I had to choose, it would have to be that book. :)
How about you? I'd love to hear some of your kid reading experiences and favorite books so feel free to write them on the comments.
