Hour 2: Mini Challenge: Our Bookish Childhood


My Top 5 Bookish Childhood Memories

1.  All of Beatrix Potter. I loved her quiet adventurous stories and watercolor illustrations.

2. Don’t Forget The Oatmeal. This was a Sesame Street Children’s Book. This book mixed my love of story and grocery store. I am a Florida Girl and thus a Publix girl for life!

3. Nancy Drew, particularly The Message In The Hollow Oak. This was the first chapter book my mom and I took turns reading together at night before bed.

4. Mr. Popper’s Penguins was the first chapter book I ever read completely on my own.

5. HARRY POTTER! The series is one that  I picked up at random in 1999 at a Scholastic Book Fair that ended up shaping my bookish life.  This needs no further explanation.
