I remember loving to read when I was a young child. I always had my head buried it some book. I don’t think it mattered what I was reading just as long as it was something. Of course, all love stories come to an end and the end of my love for reading was high school. High school made my busy with sports, a heavy class load, life guarding and a social life, so I broke up with books. Don’t get too depressed though, post college books and I are back together.
I remember it was like a weight off my shoulders once I graduated (college). I could finally read for pleasure again. I had time to read for pleasure again. The year after I graduated, I told myself I wanted to read at least 6 (new) books every year, and so far that has withheld the test of time. Don’t get me wrong, sitting down and finding the perfect book to read is hard, but once I get my hands on the right one be prepared to not see me for two weeks.
All of this reminiscing makes me think back to my favorite book from my childhood and there are two strong contenders that stand out Stella Luna and The Rainbow Fish. Both of these books were read to me multiple times as both bedtime stories and just for fun. When I am looking for a quick flashback to the past, I pull out my copy of Stella Luna or The Rainbow Fish and sit down for a quick read. Did you read these books? After a quick search on Amazon, I was shocked to find out that Stella Luna is only $2 and some odd change! These books are classics! What was your favorite book as a child?
PS. I am ALWAYS looking for book recommendations. Send some to me, if you read a good book recently!
