I’ve done my first review of a children’s book! I do love children’s literature. Like Meg Ryan says in You’ve Got Mail, and I’m paraphrasing since I’m writing this from memory, kids books become a part of you the way nothing you ever read later in life does. This is so true. When you love a book as a child, it stays with you. Even if you’re not like me and don’t reread them once in awhile, you remember them. You want to share them with the kids in your life either by passing on your own well-worn copy or by buying the latest edition. When you see a familiar cover or hear a favorite passage, it brings on a special kind of joy that, emotionally, puts you right back there to the first time you ever read it…it’s like time travel! When I’m feeling particularly nostalgic, there’s nothing like reaching for an old friend from childhood whether it’s Little Women or The Lorax. These books teach more than we think they do, but they do it while they become our dearest friends and our best memories. Check out my review on the Book Reviews page!
