I am starting a new blog series for Mondays called Monday’s Question. I hope you will have fun with this and participate weekly with your comments. Also if you have any ideas for questions, please feel free to let me know… I gladly welcome your suggestions. Here we go… let’s get started!
The first Monday’s Question is: What was your favorite childhood book?
When I was in elementary school, I loved to go to the library. I remember being the student librarian several years and I was in heaven. My favorite book in the library when I was in my early elementary school years was Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik. Oh how I adored this book! I checked it out every chance that I got (which was about every week). And I would read it a million times. I loved how Little Bear used his imagination (especially when he pretended to go to the moon). And I always liked how loving and affectionate his family was to each other. That always made me feel good. I guess you could say I was somewhat obsessed with this book. I remember the librarian calling my mother at home and telling her that she might want to have a little talk with me about “broadening my reading horizons” because I was checking out Little Bear every single week (and that there might be other kids who would like to read this book)! When my kids came along, you can bet I bought them all the Little Bear books. And I guess if grandchildren come along in the future, I will definitely introduce them to Little Bear.
So that’s my favorite childhood book. That was easy. What’s yours?
