This Friday, I'm expecting one of the most exciting packages I have ever received. I finally found my favorite books that I grew up reading!! I've never been able to buy this set for myself, because it costs hundreds of dollars. I finally found the 24 book set SO CHEAP, at a fraction of the cost! I was able to buy the books with part of a surprise scholarship that popped up on my school account. I just remember how magical these little books were for me and my siblings, and I'm thrilled that I can share them with our children!! :)
We have decided that the most valuable "things" that we can give our children are books. I have started searching for my favorites throughout the years, and so far, I have a nice little collection started! A lot of my favorite books are either out of print now, or VERY pricey, because of their "classic" nature. Frankly, I don't recall all of the titles, just the stories!! I'll have to pow-wow with my siblings and cousins to see if they remember the names of the books we read......
A list of my VERY favorite childhood stories:
x Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit Books
-(especially The Tale of Two Bad Mice, about Hunca
Munca! I named my hamster after that mouse...)
x The Cat Who Wore A Pot On Her Head (Bendemolina)
x Little Black Sambo
x Dark Pony (I still haven't figured out if that was a real
book or just a story Grandma told me at bedtime...)
x Socks for Supper
x Paddington Bear Series
x Dr. Suess, of course!
x Little Red Hen
Tell me if you have any favorites that you would recommend so I can keep an eye out for them at yard sales!
